News: World Of Magic! Is On At Artscape In Cape Town On Sunday
The College Of Magic's annual theatrical extravaganza, which will be featuring brain-bending magic and illusion at Artscape Theatre, is perfect for both young and older fans of the impossible.
The College Of Magic is presenting World Of Magic!
, its annual magic spectacular, at Artscape Theatre in Cape Town on Sunday, 6 October 2019 for two shows only. The production is the latest in a long line of events produced by the magical-arts organisation since 1982 and is the first to be directed by a woman - Santika Naidoo, a graduate of the institution and a member of its volunteer teaching staff who is a final year student at the University Of Cape Town where she is studying for a Bachelor Of Arts in film and television, psychology, and organisational psychology.
This year's cast wholly comprises students from the College Of Magic, including Alfred Baba, the runner up in the stage competition of this year's Western Cape Junior Magician Championships
, and Luvo Mrolota, this year's winner of the Supreme Trophy For Up-And-Coming Magicians and the 2018 runner up in the stage category of the Western Cape Junior Magician Championships. The show, which is specifically designed to be enjoyed by families, with entertainment to enthrall both adults and children, will comprise a series of magical vignettes featuring magicians, jugglers, and clowns and there will also be some surprises featuring female students from the College Of Magic, nevermind some mind-blowing magical effects and a selection of amazing illusions, some of which are making their Cape Town stage debut.
Ticket holders are advised to arrive early for the shows as there will be a pre show in the foyer outside the Artscape Theatre that is tailored for young children (but which will, of course, be entertaining for everyone to watch). It will feature roving magicians and activities such as the ability to build a magic wand and is designed to build suspense even before the audience enters the theatre for the main event.
The shows are at 14:00 and 16:30 on Sunday, 6 October 2019 (but arrive half an hour early for the kids' pre show) and tickets, which are R165 each, or a discount of R140 per ticket for a special four-ticket family deal, can be purchased through Computicket
. The funds raised will go to support the College Of Magic's various initiatives, which include annual charity performances, funding under privileged students so that they can study at the school, and community outreach programmes.
