Computer screens may exercise a mesmeric power over kids, but there isn’t a child alive who’s immune to the mystery of an old fashioned live magic show – or the thrills of old-school circus. Combine the two, and you’ve got a sure-fire crowd pleaser.
The Quizzical Mr Jeff demonstrated this at his recent appearances at the Adelaide Fringe and Melbourne Comedy Festival, and now the debonair Melbourne-based performer is bringing his jaw-dropping and fun-filled show to the Melbourne Magic Festival these school holidays.
In the evocative surrounds of the The Houdini Theatre at The Arrow Hub, Mr Jeff will entrance your little ones with his ability to levitate crystal balls, juggle hats, to make extraordinary things out of hula hoops, and inflate a six-foot tall balloon.
Boasting a flamboyant array of costumes and a flair for physical comedy, The Quizzical Mr Jeff is a visually arresting show that promises to have audiences of all ages spellbound. Adult tickets are $26, children and concession $20 and a family of four can get in for $78. There are also group and special admission prices available. Book in and find out more here.
