Stage sensation Celtic Illusion will light up Griffith Regional Theatre with its breathtaking fusion of modern Irish dance and spellbinding magic on Saturday 27 April at 7.30pm.

Celtic Illusion’s director, choreographer and lead dancer, Anthony Street said, “Celtic Illusion showcases a stellar cast of champion and internationally acclaimed dancers, including performers from Riverdance and Lord of the Dance.”

Today he is a world-renowned dancer, performing the lead role in Michael Flatley’s Lord of the Dance as well as many other international dance productions.

Celtic Illusion boasts electrifying new choreography with the Irish dance and magical illusion spectacular set to blow audiences away.
