Joe the Magician – Live
24th September @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm€15
It’s Joe the Magician from RTÉjr! And he’s bringing his spectacular children’s comedy magic and illusion show to the Dunamaise Arts Centre for one spectacular afternoon of mind boggling fun!
Joe’s show fuses laugh out loud comedy magic with absolutely jaw dropping spectacular illusions live on stage. It’s a rollercoaster theatrical ride that reinvents children’s entertainment.
Tables will fly, a friendly ghost will magically fly into the audience and charm kids and grownups alike! Joe will even make it snow live on stage! That’s just for starters!
Joe’s hugely popular TV show ‘abraKIDabra’ has been one of the most watched shows on RTÉjr and on the RTÉ player and now Joe stars in his new educational comedy show ‘Dizzy Deliveries’ beginning September where Joe is a magical delivery man.
The TV show is a first in Ireland as it incorporates the use of ‘Lámh’ for children with communication difficulties and the new magic show will also incorporate that too, another first!
