College of Magic adds extra show for “SA’s biggest magic show”

In a feat more magical than pulling a rabbit out of a top hat, the College of Magic’s winter extravaganza, the Imagine! Family Magic Spectacular‘s first two shows have sold out in record time. Now, due to overwhelming popular demand, a third performance will be staged at the Artscape Theatre on Saturday, June 3, at 5pm.

Cape Town’s magic fanatics have been clamouring to get their hands on tickets for the family friendly Imagine! Spectacular, billed as South Africa’s biggest magic show, with a cast of more than 50 children’s entertainers, illusionists, jugglers, mimes and more on stage, and with special guest magicienne Lee Cohen from Australia as her Fairy Lee persona set to dazzle audiences before and after the show.

The College of Magic, now in its 37th year of teaching the art of magic and its allied arts, as well as vital life-skills, to children and adults, regularly hosts “mega magical events.” It is a non-profit organisation and the only one of its kind in the world.

“We’ve never seen anything like it in the magical community in Cape Town! To have one year of sold out shows as we did for the Imagine!,Spectacular in 2016 was amazing, but a second year running is just unbelievable. We look forward to dazzling families at not just one, but three amazing shows at the Artscape Theatre this June where the impossible is made possible,” says David Gore, director of the College of Magic.

* Tickets are available from R160, with discounts for family bookings. Book at Computicket.

Proceeds from the show will be used in aid of the organisation’s Umlingo Outreach initiative, which provides holistic life skills to young people in need.
