Virtual “Happy Dan the Magic Man” to Facebook August 19

Although the Wake Forest Renaissance Centre remains closed and in-person events canceled due to COVID-19, it continues to offer free online visual and performing arts experiences you can enjoy from the comfort of your home. 

One of our favorite performers, Happy Dan The Magic Man, is presenting a popular series of virtual performances on the third Wednesday of each month via the Renaissance Centre Facebook page.

To date, his June and July online shows have been seen and enjoyed by over 11,000 viewers. Happy Dan’s next one-of-a-kind magic and comedy show will be streamed via Facebook on Wednesday, August 19, at 11 a.m. The following day it will be made available on the Renaissance Centre website at www.wakeforestrencen.org/tickets-events/virtual-ren-cen

Everyone laughs louder when Happy Dan the Magic Man is in the house. Happy Dan has traveled the world entertaining families for more than 30 years. His hilarious family shows are regular features at Southeastern festivals, comedy clubs, banquets, trade shows, schools, and family living rooms. He is more than an entertainer. He’s that slightly silly, can’t-wait-to-see-him, loving uncle that every child loves.  

Happy Dan’s zany character recalls the fun of live television hosts from years gone by. He blends the gentleness and homespun comfort of Mister Rogers with the silly antics and storytelling of Captain Kangaroo. His talents stretch to thoroughly holding the attention of children as young as three years to golden age adults. Wherever laughter and a caring heart is needed, Happy Dan delivers!
