The Greatest Magic Show (Showmen Productions)

By | Published on Wednesday 14 August 2019

Our enthusiastic and endearingly earnest young Australian conjurors are Sam and Justin. Introduced by their Ringmaster and MC – a recurring comic character – they gleefully and only occasionally gratingly mug around in between a series of neat tricks. Most of these involve inviting one or more of the children piled down the front to take part, so get there in good time to grab one of those berths if you think your wee one might be tempted. So, the greatest magic show? Of course it isn’t but, for a children’s magic show, it’s not bad at all. Sam and Justin work their young crowd very well, and all (small) attendees get a magic wand for their trouble.

Assembly Rooms, until 24 Aug.
