Online stage for the Stars of Magic

Olwethu Dyantyi, South African Magic Champion and illusionist, from Khayelitsha, will perform in the Stars of Magic online show on Saturday June 27.

The College of Magic in Claremont will celebrate its 40th anniversary with an online fundraising show, Stars of Magic, on Saturday June 27, at 8pm.

The show will be hosted by comedians and College of Magic graduates, Stuart Taylor, Conrad Koch and Riaad Moosa.

Special guests streaming in from around the globe include David Ben and Julie Eng from Canada; Chris Capehart and Ran’D Shine from the USA; Guy Hollingworth and R Paul Wilson from the UK, as well as South Africans, Olwethu Dyantyi and Larry Soffer.

While it traditionally hosts annual fundraising productions, including Imagine! SA’s Biggest Magic Show at the Artscape Theatre, the worldwide pandemic has seen the college adapt its show offering.

“As magicians, we thrive on making the impossible possible. The current health crisis presented us with the unique opportunity to reinvent our 40th anniversary fundraising show and the art of sharing magic with audiences around the world virtually. We’ve been delighted with the response of world class performers and our own successful graduates who have come to our aid and who are generously donating their time to our show. Stars of Magic is going to be a fantastic event and we cannot wait to share the wonder online with you,” says David Gore, director of the College of Magic.

All proceeds raised from the Stars of Magic show will be used for the College of Magic’s various outreach programmes.

Tickets cost R150 through Quicket.

A unique streaming link will be sent to you after you have bought a ticket.
