Bunbury audiences are in store for a magical night next week when the exhilarating Celtic Illusion: The Magic Returns hits the stage of the Bunbury Regional Entertainment Centre for one night only.

On March 29, the globally revered performance will take audiences on a one of a kind journey of Irish and jazz dance and magic when it kicks off its 2023 Australian tour in Western Australia.

A highly anticipated return to the west, leading performer Georgia May said the show was postponed three times in the past due to COVID-19.

“It’s a very exciting time to be returning because it has been so long, and the excitement has definitely built up,” she said.

Pulling together an experienced group of performers from across the country, she said the cast was eager to open the tour.

“We’ve been rehearsing for a few days now and everything is starting to come together,” she said.

“The show itself is very high energy, there’s never a moment where there isn’t multiple things going on at the one time.

“It’s not just your standard traditional Irish dancing, there’s quite a modern twist and fusion going on.”

With plenty of regional stops along the way, May said the group was keen to share their art form with country communities and inspire children to achieve their artistic goals.

“We always find the regional crowds are great, they really get into it, which is awesome,” she said.

“We love visiting the regions, and we try to do a little bit of an outreach to local schools as well to really inspire that next generation of performers or just theatre lovers in general. “

Celtic Illusion: The Magic Returns will take place on Tuesday, March 29 from 7.30pm, with tickets available via the BREC website.
