MAGICIANS of Mann are to stage an extravaganza of magic in Scoill Ree Gorree in support of a project to eliminate polio around the world.
The show is being staged in conjunction with the Rotary Club of Ramsey on Friday 21st May, in support of their Thanks for Life Campaign, which is Rotary's project to eliminate polio in the few remaining countries where it still exists.
The magic show will feature a variety of local magicians and entertainers, including local magician and Rotarian Keith Greenland who said that the show will be suitable for all ages, with plenty of laughter guaranteed.
Chris Burns, as his alter-ego Cookie the Clown, will start the show, with lots of the fun for which he is well known. “Paul Martin has a fascinating act, and introduces a mind-reading goose”, said Keith.
Bev Michelson returns from a visit to America where he’s been filmed for a magic DVD (volcanic ash permitting) to host the evening. John Cain will perform a purpose-built illusion, with lots of fun built-in.
Melissa Dove and Daniel Quayle will be demonstrating some classic illusions and Juan Corrin, another young magician, will be performing his well-rehearsed routines. Local entertainer Colin Boardman will end the show with his award-winning professional act.
Mike Clague, secretary of the Magicians of Mann, said, “This is a different show from the one staged in Ramsey by the Young Magicians of Mann last year, and like that one will appeal to anyone aged from 4 to 104 who enjoys live entertainment.”
Tickets costing £6 are available from Shakti Man and W. H. Looney Ltd in Ramsey.
