— Happy Dan the Magic Man, a favorite among young kids and families, is now offering virtual performances through the Wake Forest Renaissance Centre.

He'll be performing his one-of-a-kind magic show on the third Wednesday of each month at 11 a.m. According to the town, the performance can be streamed via the Renaissance Centre Facebook page. They will also be available on the Renaissance Centre website.

Here's a description of the free program:

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!

He's next scheduled at 11 a.m., July 15. More information is on the Renaissance Centre's website.

You can watch one of his earlier show's on the centre's Facebook page.
