Don’t let inconvenience be an issue, and Don’t Let The Weather Stop You!
It was good to see a large turnout despite weather conditions.
It was opening night of the “Circus of Illusions“ and there was evidence of disorganisation from the start. At 7:45pm the doors were not opened for entry. I decided to get a snack with a massive line-up, children appeared to be already bored. The advertisement indicated that there was a workshop for children to learn magic. Surprisingly there was poor attendance for it.
Finally the doors opened at 8:15pm! We made our way through with no adequate signage or assistance from ushers or security.
Our pre-purchased ‘A RESERVED’ Tickets were of no ‘value’ as people occupied seats at random and we ended up in the corner in the ‘C RESERVED ‘ section.
Sadly, there was more issues to come. There were technical problems with the microphone when the red costumed magician appeared on stage to start the show.
But as they say ‘the show must go on!’.
Everyone appeared to be amazed by the outstanding performance of the juggling act, delivered with energy and entertaining personality.
The aerial stunts were also breathtaking, as the amazing skills of the lady floating in the air was appreciated by the crowd.
Despite some initial evidence of disorganisation, technical problems,and poor weather conditions, the evening was highly enjoyable due to the performer’s, skills, talent and enthusiasm to entertain us . Also ,undoubtedly the children would have experienced a further memorable event when the performers personalised the show by shaking hands and thanking us for our attendance.
There is something mesmerising about the magic you are unable to work out; about the fearlessness of the acrobats; and the dexterity of the jugglers, so please support them!.
In the age of the online entertainment, it is most satisfying to experience real talent “in the flesh” to be enjoyed by all age groups.
We look forward to the future shows.
