It’s a rare treat to find a show that appeals to all ages but the Music and Magic show does just that!
The performance sees a variety show concert with popular melodies, sing and clap a longs a display of magic, dance and laughter for all! In short - an afternoon of good, old fashioned fun for the whole family.
The concert goes for about an hour and is hosted byVov Dylanwho also fronts thePalace Orchestra.Dylan is renowned for his exceptional violin playing, having previously earned the title of “World’s fastest violinist”, and “Australia’s Answer to Andre Rieu”.
The concert starts off in a very upbeat way with the theme tune to “The Muppet Show”.“Somewhere Over the Rainbow” is then performed as a sweet and breezy instrumental to introduce all the musicians to the audience.
After this Vov encourages you to clap along to a medley that features Johann Strauss’ “The Blue Danube”, “The Chicken (Dance)” and “If You’re Happy & You Know It”. The group also plays The Carpenters’ “Sing” which segues off into “Do-Re-Mi” fromThe Sound of Music(this latter part allows all of the audience to sing along with gusto).
It is then time for magician,Joel Howlettto do a spot. He dazzles with his tricks like making a dove appear from a bag, knotting and cutting ropes, making a napkin disappear and hiding an audience member’s $20 note in a lemon.
Joel Howlett is not the only guest star on the day, Dylan also has his 14 year old daughter Olivia do a graceful lyrical dance routine to theMary Poppinssong, “Feed The Birds”.
The Palace Orchestrareturns for some Disney classics, “When You Wish Upon A Star”, “The Mickey Mouse March” and “A Spoonful of Sugar”, “Can You Feel The Love Tonight?”, and more!
