After wowing audiences across Australia, dance and magical performance Celtic Illusion is set to showcase its internationally acclaimed dancers to the Sunshine Coast.
The show for all ages fuses awe-inspiring contemporary Irish dance with magic and grand Illusions and will perform at council’s Venue 114 on April 6 at 7.30pm.
With incredible new choreography, spellbinding magic, heart-racing music and a sensory experience like no other, audiences will be kept on the edge of their seats and left wanting more.
Showcasing a stellar cast of internationally-acclaimed dancers, including performers from both Riverdance and Lord of the Dance, Celtic Illusion offers some of the fastest taps in the world as the dancers’ thunderous rhythm fills the stage in perfect unison.
The show is led by Australia’s very own Anthony Street, the first Australian to perform leading roles in Michael Flatley’s widely-acclaimed Lord of the Dance, including the very role that Michael Flatley originally performed himself.
Since its premiere in 2011, the show has performed to sell-out audiences across Australia and New Zealand.
Celtic Illusion’s acclaimed soundtrack has been composed by a team, including Angela Little who co-composed Baz Luhrman’s film Australia, as well as Steve Skinner who produced for artists such as Celine Dion, Steve Wonder and the Broadway musical Rent.
Tickets are $69.90 for adults, $64.90 for concessions, $59.90 for young people 16 years and under and family tickets are $250 for two adults and two children.
