Chuck in the Lions Den

The Chuck Jones Magic & Illusion Show returned for the 8th Australia/New Zealand Tour, lasting 3 months performing in 15 New Zealand & 35 Australian centres. The Gisborne Host Lions made contact with Chuck Jones at the Cyclone Bola Concert held at Te Araroa. The Lions pre-sell tickets to businesses who donate the tickets to children. The Show at the War Memorial Theatre is run by the Lions with Chuck and his fellow magicians putting on truly professional performances equal to those shows we see on primetime TV suitable for children & adults.


The "Miss Made Girl" is a Blackstone Trophy winning illusion that Chuck Jones developed 20 years ago where Jan Jones, his beautiful assistant, gets a little mixed up.
