Proudly presented by the College of Magic, the Mother City’s only magical arts organisation, the Championships will see nine of the province’s top teen wizards go wand to wand in the dexterous art of Close-Up magic and stunning illusions of Stage magic for the Junior Magician titles and top honours.
Dazzling preparations have been underway at the College of Magic’s mysterious Victorian manor base in Claremont as the excited teenage competitors, Grant Best, Anele Dyasi, Liam Hewitson, Emma Hutchison, Luvo Mrolota, Siphesihle Ndayi, Sahil Samlal, Duncan Shelver and Dion Wabanie, hailing from Khayelitsha to Goodwood, work hard on their unbelievable acts to impress spectators and judges.
Celebrating its 38th year of teaching the art of magic and its allied arts as well as vital life-skills to children and adults in 2018, the College of Magic, a non-profit organisation and the only one of its kind in the world, is delighted to once again host the Western Cape Junior Magician Championships:
“To host a fantastical spectacle of this prestige year after year is a great honour. The Championships not only gives our young contestants the opportunity to put their performance prowess to the test against their peers but also allows us to share the wonder of magic with a greater audience. We look forward to welcoming everyone to THE magical battle of the year! “, says Yolandi van Jaarsveldt, CEO of the College of Magic.
