Since its inception in 2016, Monday Night Magic, presented by Cape Town Magic Club, has dazzled more than 3 500 audience members with a variety of illusions, sleight of hand, mentalism and, well … magic.

Monday Night Magic is bringing its sixth season of amazement and wonder to the heart of one of Cape Town’s busiest visitor attractions – the V&A Waterfront. Monday Night Magic’s new theatre will “pop up” in the Forum Conference and Banquet Centre, managed by The Victoria and Alfred Hotel.

With an extensive line-up of talent at its disposal, no two Monday Night Magic shows are alike. Guests can expect to see the talents of top local and international acts including TV stars, champions, and even performers travelling specially to perform in the theatre. From mind-reading to visual sleight of hand, the performers are certain to dazzle even the most sceptical adult audiences.

Season Six performers include Colin Underwood, Larry Soffer, Marcel Oudejans, Russell Fox and Greg Gelb. Spicing things up even more are special “magical burlesque” performances by Black Orchid Burlesque SA’s Bon Bon. These shows are, without a doubt, designed for an adult audience and confirm that magic is definitely not just for children’s parties.

While the venue may have changed, guests will still experience magic close up in the Club’s signature theatre, complete with raked seating so even people in the back row are, effectively, ‘in the front row’. Shows are at 7pm every week, with special 9pm shows featuring magical burlesque guest performer Bon Bon added by popular demand.

Says Marcel Oudejans, founder of Cape Town Magic Club and producer of Monday Night Magic: “We’re extremely proud of our growing base of supporters – both from Cape Town and visitors to our city – so we decided to begin our next season as soon as possible. The fact we are now located in such a desirable location at one of South Africa’s most visited tourist destinations will certainly help us make people aware of the amazing talent our performers have to share.”

The show is supported by GINJA Restaurant at The Victoria and Alfred Hotel and guests who present their tickets on the night of the show will be able to take advantage of a 5% discount on delicious artisanal and wholesome meals at this chic restaurant right on the water’s edge.

Prepare to be amazed and to sit in open-mouthed wonder as Cape Town Magic Club’s artists take you on a mind-bending journey down the rabbit hole, in a setting where you can closely watch their every move – and still have no idea how they do it.
