Wyndham Cultural Centre will be buzzing on Saturday, May 4, when the former principal dancer in Michael Flatley’s Lord of the Dance, Anthony Street, brings you Celtic Illusion – a spectacular fusion of Irish dancing, magic and grand illusions.

Celtic Illusion will feature a stellar cast of acclaimed dancers, including performers from Riverdance and Lord of the Dance, as well as lead dancer, producer and choreographer, Anthony Street – Australia’s own Billy Elliot.

The show is led by Anthony, the first Australian to perform leading roles in Lord of the Dance, including the role Michael Flatley originally performed himself.

The show offers some of the fastest taps in the world as the dancers’ thunderous rhythm fills the stage in perfect unison.

Audiences will also enjoy a soundtrack composed by an A list team including Angela Little who was the composer for Baz Luhrman’s film, Australia.

Still on a high from recent tours at Her Majesty’s Theatre in Melbourne and across Australia and New Zealand, the spell-binding two-hour family show will feature new choreography and an acclaimed cast of dancers and astonishing magic.

Tickets are still available but you’ll need to be quick. Go to wyncc.com.au to book tickets or direct via the box office  on 8734 6000.
