Cape Town Magic Club
Africa’s Premier Magic Theatre Re-Opens For “Monday Night Magic” Season 3
The Cape Town Magic Club was founded by veteran magician Marcel Oudejans in 2016 and hosts the longest-running magic show in South Africa. “Monday Night Magic” has already had four successful seasons and is about to embark on its firth, firmly positioning it as a night of fun and entertainment which showcases all manner of illusionists, mentalists, and magical sideshow acts—local and international, those with decades of experience as well as the new kids on the block.
“Monday Night Magic” Season Five launches on 11 September and runs until 30 October 2017, in an original underground bank vault in the luxurious 5-star Taj Cape Town, in the historical heart of the Mother City.
Two shows every Monday will feature an eclectic and magical mix of performance artists entertaining audiences in an intimate 50-seater theatre. In keeping with the history of the magnificent building, guests will be greeted by gorgeous Black Orchid Burlesque flapper girls who will show them the way to the venue where they will be able to order a drink, mingle with the magicians before and after the show, and have photographs taken.
Magic is so much more than mind-boggling illusions; the performances include elements of comedy, more than a little theatrical drama, and willing audience participation to create a fully immersive entertainment experience. Revived and refreshed for a new generation of spectators, “Monday Night Magic” is perfect date night material, be it the first date or the 100th. Gather a group of friends for safety in numbers in the premium front row seats where there’s nowhere to hide or cut loose with your colleagues for a corporate event with a difference.
Being the only magic theatre in Africa, Cape Town Magic Club supports the development of up and coming magicians through encouraging and mentoring them, and literally providing a platform for them to hone their skills in front of an audience. Its affiliation with similar “Monday Night Magic” endeavours in London and New York, opens up the stage to visiting international magicians, a reciprocal act which provides further opportunities for South African magicians
