The World Festival of Magic travelled to Albury to entertain about 1000 people over two shows.
Most of the dazzled onlookers wereprimary school children.
Thanks to tremendous support from Albury businesses and surrounding areas, The Lions Club of Albury was able to help deliver a spectacular stage and light show.
Lions Club member Ross Altass said the 12-month project of organising the showwas a great success.
“We hadthe assistance of businesshouses around Albury and a lot of schools,” he said.
“We’re able to get magicians to come through every year and put on a show which the children very much enjoy.”
Mr Altass said feedback and contact sent to the Lions Club after the show was always welcomed.
“The letters of appreciation and phone calls we get from the children after the show is over are very heart-warming,” he said.
“After our club has put so much work init’s a lot of satisfactionto see the end result.”
Michael Boyd wows the crowd with his entrance at the World Festival of MagicImportantly, the show’s sponsor, the Albury Wodonga Regional Cancer Centre Trust Fund, received a $10,000 donation as part of their relationship.
“Each year we select a charity to support, and in the past we have helped the Albury Border Rescue Squad and Angel Flight,” he said.
“A show like this cost about $80,000.”
Boyd wowed the crowd with his clever tricks but it was the crowd reaction that pleased him most.
“The reaction of the kids is absolutely amazing,” he said.
“The adults also turn into children and have the same sense of wonder and it’s nice to believe there is a bit of magic.”
Boyd said every audience he performed to was different.
“To be able to bring a little big of magic and an escape into their lives is really important,” he said.
“It’s probably their first theatre experience.”
