What happens in the show?

The show is a mixture of magic and illusions, with dancers and the audience joining in.

Describe the show in five words

Impressive, exciting, scary, dangerous, magical.

Who was your favourite character and why? 

Michael Jordan, the magician. 

Were there any characters you didn’t like? 

None.

What did you like most about the show? 

The final trick where he made snow appear from a wet, torn-up paper tissue. I don’t know how he did it and it looked really cool.

What didn’t you like about the show?

Nothing, definitely not! Well, my dad asked if I thought it was funny: I didn’t think it was meant to be funny…

Would you tell your friends to come and see the show? 

I would tell them that they should go straight away because I think all of my friends would like it, even if they’re not really magic fans, or if they just like shows where you can join in. The show isn’t just watching magic tricks, some of it is all about the audience using their own imagination, which most children like to do.

What did your grown-up think of the show? 

I think my dad thought it was okay, like magic shows he saw when he was my age. I think that my dad’s favourite bit was when he got to go up onstage and show off, and he even had the magician sitting on his shoulders!
