THE EXCLUSIVE SHOW


My thanks and appreciation to the locals who decided that "the show must go on" these holidays!

Eight mask wearing spectators at a time, gathered at Central Leagues Club to enjoy a Magical Parlor Performance . This was very well received!
I will be repeating the shows on Thursday 8th and Friday 9th July.
At this point in time, there are still some seats available for Friday 9th July at 2:30 pm and 4 pm - Please message (or text / 0435161224) me ASAP if you wish to claim these!

ADAPTING MY PERFORMANCE SCHEDULE!


I have been corresponding with the CEO at Central Charlestown Leagues Club over the last few days on possible ways to hold family shows at the club during these School Holidays in a way that is safe for the participants and does not breach any of the current restrictions.
I can confirm that I will be presenting some very exclusive shows in the club meeting room. Due to the size of the room and social distancing requirements, we can only fit 8 people per session - with this in mind, PM or email (jdandfriends@dodo.com.au) ASAP if you wish to claim a spot!
Despite the very small number of spectators at each performance, I promise to enthusiastically deliver an energetic world class show complete with live animals, award winning sleight of hand and more fun than you could wave a wand at!
The cost to attend is only $20 per person - adults at children's prices!
PLEASE NOTE:
* Masks must be worn at all times during the performance by both adults and children.

A GREAT FEELING:

I really enjoyed performing to a 'standing room only' Theatre audience yesterday afternoon. Thanks to all who came to see the the show.

I'm now making preparations to head North for a series of performances next week. It feels great to be back on the circuit and I am finding audiences to be really appreciative of live entertainment!

Have a Magical Week everyone!!

SCHOOL HOLIDAY MAGIC:

It has been such a fun day! A big thank you to all the families who came along to see the performances.

The day started off with TWO booked out shows at Rathmines Theatre followed by an evening performance at
The Ary Toukley
where two of my Circus Friends surprised me by attending the performance - it was a lovely impromptu catch up 🙂
Its very exciting that COVID 19 restrictions have lifted and events such as these can take place. Keep your eye on this page as I hope to announce similar family friendly Variety Shows in the near future.
(Special thanks to Rachel Mallaby for the photos)

PUZZLES:


I recently obtained some Puzzle Books from the collection of the late Gary Neville. Gary was a High School Teacher (and Magic Enthusiast!!) who was always challenging his classes with Puzzles and Riddles.

While this sort of thing is not everyone's cup of tea, I thought it might be fun to post a couple of puzzles below. To play along you may leave your answers in the comments below. I will post the correct answers TOMORROW!

1. What is a four letter word that can be read forwards, backwards or upside down?

2. I have an object in my hands which is a thread-like material. I cut clean through it with a pair of scissors. I have not created two pieces with four ends but only one piece with two ends. What is the object?

3. Professor Paradox startled his fellow passengers on the train yesterday by leaping to his feet and exclaiming:
"Brothers and children have I none,
But my Father's Grandson is Nick's Father's Son"
What relation is Nick to the Professor?

CONGRATULATIONS OLIVIA AND JADE!!

This afternoon I had the honour of performing at Olivia and Jade's Wedding at a beautiful old building in Watt St Newcastle CBD.

I presented 'Close Up Walk Around Magic' to amuse and amaze, while the couple were getting their photos. There was a very enthusiastic response from the wedding guests and lots of lovely complements about the performances!!

CORPORATE MAGIC:

I really enjoyed sharing my close up / sleight of hand magic at a recent corporate event!

It was an upbeat and interactive way to wrap up the "Smiths Snackfoods" Conference at Cypress Lakes Hunter Valley.
