Running at the Civic Theatre, Tallaght, this Halloween is Jakula, a Halloween feast of magic and laughs. Dracula’s younger brother, Jackula, is on a quest to become the first fun vampire. He certainly succeeds, as the audience, young and old alike are shouting, laughing and having fun from the moment he opens the show with a classic magic wand gag.
This show is a simple, and sweet combination of classic tricks and physical comedy tied together with jokes and word-play that will delight audiences of all ages. The tricks are well executed and perfectly tailored to the target age group. There are plenty of opportunities for children in the audience to get involved on stage, and a chance for every child to do a trick at the end. All of these interactions are engaging and entertaining, maintaining the pace of the show for the rest of the audience.
For a morning of Halloween fun and frolics, you won’t go far wrong with Jackula and his tricks.
