World-first stage show Celtic Illusion is set to delight with its breathtaking fusion of modern Irish dance and spellbinding magic at council’s Venue 114 on Saturday, April 6 at 7.30pm

Still on a high from the success of its recent tours, which included a marquee performance at Her Majesty’s Theatre in Melbourne, as well as sell-out shows across South Australia and New Zealand, Celtic Illusion boasts electrifying new choreography with the Irish dance and magical illusion spectacular set to blow audiences away.

Director, producer, choreographer and lead dancer Anthony Street said Celtic Illusion showcased a stellar cast of champion and internationally acclaimed dancers, including performers from Riverdance and Lord of the Dance.

“Celtic Illusion has enjoyed great success, regularly performing to sell-out audiences since the show premiered in 2011,” he said.

“Audiences will be impressed by some of the fastest tap dancing in the world, not to mention an incredible soundtrack composed by a stellar team, including Angela Little who co-composed Baz Luhrman’s film Australia, as well as Steve Skinner, who has arranged and produced for artists such as Celine Dion, Stevie Wonder and the Broadway musical Rent.”

Street is the creative mastermind behind Celtic Illusion, and has an interesting story – not unlike that of Billy Elliot.

Born and raised in Melbourne, Street lives a double life; getting his hands dirty as a demolition worker by day and lighting up the stage as lead dancer for the show by night.

Street grew up surrounded by motorbikes, racing cars, hunting and football before he first fell in love with Riverdance and, with the assistance of his grandmother, he began secretly taking Irish dancing lessons.

Today he is a world-renowned dancer, recognised as the first Australian to perform the lead role in Michael Flatley’s widely acclaimed Lord of the Dance, as well as being responsible for the dance and magical sensation Celtic Illusion.

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.

To book, visit www.venue114.com.au or call 5413 1400 (phone charges do apply).

Event parking is free and public transport is available nearby.

Venue 114, formerly known as Lake Kawana Community Centre, is located at 114 Sportsmans Parade, Bokarina.
