A Night filled with Magic!
Posted on October 28, 2008 by admin
Â Ladies and gentlemen, something new and exciting is happening in Cairns! The Velvet Underground at the Casino has opened its doors to a new and truly entertaining magic show called Xtreme Illusions. It is one hour filled with fun, great tricks and modern choreographies. Yesterday it was my fiancÃ©es birthday, so I decided to celebrate by doing something a little different (as it was also a rainy Monday night and staying at home was not exactly fun) so I took him there for a bit of a look.
After reaching our seats, the waitresses asked us if we wanted something to drink and here we go, what we requested appeared in our hands! Just jokingâ€¦ but the service was really fast. Just a few minutes after the scheduled time, it was show time. After a nice opening routine performed by very nice dancers (at that point, my fiancÃ©e did thank me for taking him thereâ€¦), our illusionist Sam Powers made his appearance. He was really catchy from the very first instant, charming and funny, a real entertainer. Sam performed some â€œold fashionedâ€ tricks to start with, such as long threads and white doves appearing from his hands, but I must say, they have not lost their appeal. We were literally speechless and it was just the beginning! He did involve the audience for a few illusions, even inviting some people from the audience onto the stage. One trick that I was truly amazed by was a simple yet incredible one: he turned normal pieces of white paper into money just in front of our eyes! Like that! He did a lot in one hour, but I donâ€™t want to spoil anythingâ€¦ itâ€™s a must-see! And in between the different numbers, more dancing routines were performed. Also, I must say, the ladies will truly love Sam Powers!!
The show ended with the reproduction of a Houdini number: Sam, tied up with real handcuffs, had to escape from a locked big and solid box andâ€¦ hey, I am not revealing the final! Whether you are a local or you are just visiting Cairns, this show is perfect for one easy hour of pure entertainment. And children are welcome too. Enjoy!!Â
