We typically blog a lot about family friendly happenings in and around Cape Town, only not has been happening for the last while. After being house bound for months we were delighted to be invited to a show, especially a show that came to our house. It is the season of online living and my kids were thrilled to be able to watch The College of Magic perform their show, Imagine, from the comfort of our lounge.
Introducing the College of Magic
The College of Magic is a community based non-profit-organisation (NPO) that takes interested and curious children from all areas of greater Cape Town and trains them in the art of performance and magic tricks, all the while encouraging them to learn leadership skills and take on responsibility for themselves and their fellow performers. For the last forty years they have been inspiring youngsters to train hard, perform well and master skills they could only have dreamed of. They rely on public funding to stay afloat and to support their enthusiastic students, who would not otherwise be able to pay for their own tuition, a large apart of their funding would be from shows that they put on… only this is the year of Covid 19, and there have been no shows. These very capable students need our help and encouragement.
The Show Must Go On
They have created an online show for all of us.
If you are missing getting out and about then this is definitely the way forward. Wherever you are in the world you can enjoy the show, buy a streaming ticket from Quicket, and your family can spend an evening watching together.
During the wintry weather of the past week we spent the evening watching the show. It is almost an hour long, suitable for young and old, there will be lots of ooooh and aaaah moments. The kids from college put on a great performance, performing tricks and sleight of hand with the finesse of seasoned performers.
The acts include the usual stars from a magic show: disappearing, reappearing, juggling feats and loads of surprises for the audience.
