RTE’s premier children’s magic show, abraKIDabra, is currently airing on RTEjr, and will make it’s way onto the RTE Player so we can soon all get our magic fix.
Catch Joe Daly and friends as they do their best to put on a fabulous magic show as well as teach us some brand-new tricks.
Each episode, Joe will be joined by his new friends, Polly and Snowy, as well as two budding apprentices who learn a new trick and go on to perform it for the audience.
Shot on location in The Ark, Temple Bar in Summer, Macalla filmed 15 episodes of abraKIDabra which featured almost 200 children from all across Ireland.
The programme encourages children at home to learn and practice tricks taught to them by Joe.
While Joe performs in front of an audience in The Ark, the show’s focus is to entertain and amaze the audience at home. Each episode is broken up into segments such as Quick Trick, Joe’s Show, Teach a Trick and Put On a Show, promising continuous entertainment while encouraging audiences to take part in the challenges at hand.
Each programme runs for eight minutes, and there’s also additional material online with tutorials to take part in at home.
The series has a fun and contemporary feel with bright colours and animated graphics – perfect for younger audiences.
Catch abraKIDabra on RTEjr, and on the RTE Player soon as well.
