Magic and dance take over SOEC as Celtic Illusion arrives in Penticton – Penticton Western News


Attendees at the South Okanagan Events Center on Friday, April 8 were treated to Irish dancing and music while being mesmerized by grand illusions.

Critically acclaimed touring group Celtic Illusion stopped in Penticton to show off new choreography and never-before-seen magic.

The performance combined both elements of the art form and even included musical scores inspired by “Michael Jackson in Broadway style,” according to the act’s biography.

Celtic Illusion, created by Australian Anthony Street in 2011, first came to Canada in 2020, which included an appearance at the SOEC in February.

The cast of multi-talented artists are currently on a reimagined tour to celebrate the act’s 10th anniversary.

Penticton is the fourth Canadian city in 2022 to host the Celtic Illusion.

Members of Riverdance and Lord of the Dance, as well as Street, collaborated Friday night to bring the production to life for South Okanagan audiences.

The appearance of the act marks the start of a busy month at the OSCE.

Alice Cooper, ZZ Top, Cheap Trick and Penticton Vees playoff hockey will all be featured on the site in April.
