Kiwi magic show com­ing

South Waikato News - - Your Paper, Your Place - LUKE KIRKEBY

He may only be 21 but that hasn’t stopped New Zealand ma­gi­cian Mike Lind­say from cre­at­ing one of the coun­try’s big­gest magic shows.

For the first time ever Auckland based Lind­say is bring­ing his 90 minute long magic show It’s Show­time to The Plaza in Pu­taruru on April 8 at 7pm.

It will be the sec­ond time that the show, which has been cre­ated over two years, has been seen south of Pukekohe as Lind­say makes his way down the coun­try vis­it­ing sev­eral small towns.

He said lo­cals are in for a treat.

‘‘I have some unique rou­tines in the show that I’ve de­vel­oped my­self that no­body else per­forms that re­late to a real Kiwi style of magic,’’ he said.

‘‘Gen­er­ally in New Zealand peo­ple only get to wit­ness magic shows on a smaller scale at kids par­ties, how­ever this is more Ve­gas style with a lot of larger il­lu­sions in the mix you won’t see any­where else in New Zealand.’’

Lind­say said he was ex­cited to be bring­ing his show to small towns like Pu­taruru.

‘‘I love meet­ing peo­ple in the foyer af­ter the show in smaller towns like this be­cause they’re al­ways so ap­pre­cia­tive,’’ he said.

‘‘It’s that type of sup­port and feed­back that keeps me com­ing to towns like Pu­taruru. I’m also keen to check out the area when I’m down, I’ve only ever passed through the area but never vis­ited.’’

He said he feels lucky to have been able to forge a ca­reer out of magic at such a young age.

Tick­ets for the fam­ily friendly event can be pur­chased from Itsshow­
