Monday Night Magic at the Cape Town Magic Club

Fans of mind-bending trickery, saucy sorcery and sleight of hand will be blown away by this mystical show

There’s a saying by Roald Dahl that goes like this: “Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.” However, while we love the sentiment, we know for a fact that you’ll find it at Africa’s first dedicated magic theatre: The Cape Town Magic Club.  

The exclusive 54-seater theatre, based in the 'Bean Chamber' of TRUTH Coffee Roasting HQ, offers guests a rare opportunity to see top South African & International magicians perform their own unique combinations of illusion, mentalism and sleight of hand.

Back for season three, the Cape Town Magic Club’s ever popular ‘Monday Night Magic’ events are set to dazzle audiences with an array of unbelievable feats that go far beyond merely pulling an unsuspecting bunny from a hat. The season runs for ten nights, with two performances per night (at 7pm and 9pm) from Monday, 23 January 2017, until Monday, 27 March 2017, and you can buy tickets from Quicket.co.za.

Showgoers can enjoy a drink with the performers at the theatre's private bar both before and after the show. The bar is stocked with Truth Coffee, wines, beers and malts for everyone's tastes.

As mentioned, the 10 shows will be hosted at the secret ‘Bean Chamber’ of TRUTH Coffee Roasting HQ, which is a rather magical location as it is where the bags of green beans are stored for the famous roastery. This bigger venue on Buitenkant Street contains better facilities, including bar and restaurant. The Bean Chamber will be converted into a 54-seater theatre that will dazzle guests with amazing decor and that familiar TRUTH Coffee steampunk ambiance!

The talented line-up includes a selection of some of the best magicians in the country, including illusionists, mentalists and sleight of hand stars. 

‘Monday Night Magic’ has been running in New York and London for over 15 years, which attests to the shows’ excellence and longstanding popularity. The brainchild of well-known performer Marcel Oudejans, this year’s cast of magicians includes Marcel Oudejans, Matt Gore, Alan Marriott, Russell Fox, Jamian Fortune, Mawonga Gayiya, Andrew Eland, Brendon Peel and Colin Underwood.

He has appeared on numerous variety programs on South African television as well as in the UK, and is the only South African corporate magician to have performed for Prince Edward.

There are a few mystery performers on the books as well, but unless you’re a mentalist, you’ll have to wait to see who they are. So if you're looking for something to do on a Monday night, have a penchant for the unknown and want to have your mind blown, the Cape Town Magic Club should be your first port of call for all things magical and mysterious.
