World first stage show Celtic Illusion is set to tour Queensland with its breathtaking fusion of modern Irish dance and spell binding magic, performing in Mount Isa on Monday April 1.
The performance, at the Civic Centre, starts at 7.30pm and costs $59.90 for a ticket. Tickets are on sale now.
Audiences will be impressed by some of the fastest tap dancing in the world, an incredible soundtrack composed by a team including Angela Little who co-composed Baz Luhrman’s film Australia, and illusions that boast electrifying new choreography.
Celtic Illusion’s director, producer, choreographer and lead dancer Anthony Street said Celtic Illusion showcases a stellar cast of champion and internationally acclaimed dancers, including performers from Riverdance and Lord of the Dance.
“We have people contacting us all the time asking when Celtic Illusion will be coming to their town, and so we’re really looking forward to bringing the show to you.”
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.
Now is your chance to witness the magic that is Celtic Illusion.
