Cape Town Magic Club

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. It’s with this in mind that veteran magician Marcel Oudejans founded Cape Town Magic Club in 2016, which hosts the longest-running magic show in South Africa.

Cape Town Magic Club opened in a new venue in The Forum Conference and Banquet Centre in the heart of one of Africa’s busiest tourist destinations, the V&A Waterfront, on 13 November, 2017. The Club’s intimate 60-seater theatre is the perfect environment to see all the action “up close”.

Continuing on five successful seasons of the Club’s “Monday Night Magic” show, it has embarked on its sixth, firmly positioning it as a night of fun and spectacle which showcases all manner of illusionists, mentalists, and magical sideshow acts — local and international – with decades of experience as well as the new kids on the block. “Monday Night Magic” is a ‘magic show for grown-ups’ and is perfect date night material, be it the first or the 100th. The season runs until December 18, 2017.

And due to popular demand, Cape Town Magic Club now has a new family show for the young and the young at heart. “Masters of Magic” matinee shows take place every Sunday at 2pm from 19 November until December 17. We encourage families to join us for a wonderful, hilarious and magical journey of visual sleight-of-hand, incredible illusions, mind-boggling mentalism and so much more. Each fun and enchanting one-hour “Masters Of Magic” show will be suitable for almost all ages (we do suggest audience members be seven years old or above).

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
