Magical ‘little tramp’ performs at Langley City Summer Series

McBurney Plaza hosts event

For his first trick, magician Paul Romhany transformed himself into the “little tramp” created by Charlie Chaplin.

As he applied his makeup in front of a weekend crowd at McBurney Plaza in Langley City, Romhany explained his fascination with Chaplin began a long time ago.

“As a child in new Zealand, I was obsessed,” Romhany remarked.

Then, he stopped talking and became a silent movie come to life, presenting an appropriately wordless routine of humorous magic tricks.

Romhany was one of three magic acts booked to perform at the Saturday event, which also featured close-up, roving magic, balloon twisting and cotton candy.
