Something AMAZING is coming to Lake Macquarie Performing Arts on  May 5. Get ready to laugh until your sides split, be mesmerised by magic and illusion, and be entertained by circus skills.  AMAZING is the brand new production from  Newcastle’s favourite magician, Joel Howlett. Joel will be joined by some of his friends, Llynda Nairn (Lady Juggler), “Bravissimo” (Hula Hoop extraordinaire) and Jay Scott Berry (Master of slight of hand).

“Amazing is a unique Variety Spectacular that is family friendly and runs for two hours. It features artists that are world class” Joel said recently “Each artist has literally spent years working on what they do”.   He also is the show’s producer, adding “My job in producing the show was making sure that each artist gets to show off their best stuff and that the production runs smoothly”.

Many of us watched Joel grow up into the wonderful young man he is today, from local NBN Telethons to the nationwide Saturday night search for fresh talent on Hey Hey It’s Saturday’s Red Faces, including a short stint with Lennnon Brothers circus in the year 2000, Joel grew up before our very eyes!  He has since added Grand Illusions to his vast array of talents, “I only have the chance to do big illusions a few times a year so I appreciate and enjoy the challenges that come with presenting them!” Joel said proudly. Local Actress and Director,  Genevieve Lawson will be assisting Joel.

Joel is planning on closing ‘Amazing’ with a one of a kind illusion, “The Conundrum Cube”.  “The illusion was custom-made for me in The USA,  it’s the only one in Australia.” He said.  But, in true magician style, Joel says “I’ll not tell you any more about it – I shall leave you to be surprised by it when you see the show!”

Amazing the variety spectacular plays the Lake Macquarie Performing Arts Centre on May 5th, at 7pm. Tickets available at
