Be a part of The Magic Festival!

From The Magic Festival:
The 2nd Annual Magic Festival will be held in June of 2014 and we’re now building our database of artists who wish to showcase.  We will be in need of magical artists who can do one or more of the following disciplines:

Street Magic ¤ Comedy Magic ¤ Stage Magic ¤ Close Up Magic

Children’s Magic ¤ Restaurant Magic ¤ Bar Magic

The MAGIC Festival will be produced in a similar fashion to a Fringe Festival.  This means we award artists with extraordinary acts the opportunity to produce their productions as part of the Festival at minimal costs.  By using the bulk buying power of the Festival we have been able to secure several venues at reduced rates.  By presenting several presentations by various artists in the same venue the cost of renting a venue is a fraction of the normal costs.  There will be very few paid positions, several volunteer positions and a good number of producer positions for solo artists or groups wishing to present a compilation style show.

Magic organizations like the Vancouver Magic Circle, the Society of American Magicians and the Canadian Association of Magicians will be hosting events, shows and workshops during the Festival.

Review: Moose in a Top Hat

From The Tri-City News:
It’s a show that promises plenty of magic, a fair bit of mystery and, in a new twist, a moose serving as the evening’s distinguished MC.

Dubbed Moose in a Top Hat, the show plays on cheeky Canadiana themes between acts by award-winning magicians Matthew Johnson, Christopher Taylor and the husband-and-wife team Trevor and Lorena Watters.

The Canadian Association of Magicians is breaking all the rules. Who has ever heard of a FREE convention? Well membership has it privileges… join us and a whole lot of other magicians for the first ever CAM-JAM… the best part of any magic convention is always the JAM sessions, so why not an entire day just filled with lots of jamming plus lectures and close up shows? To top it all off the incredible Greg Frewin will be offering us all discount tickets to attend his newest edition of his show in his spectacular showroom… it just doesn’t get any better than this. Did I mention the CAM-JAM is FREE!

Port Coquitlam: Share the magic

From Gotta Be Magic:
It’s that time again! Get ready for the 3rd Annual production of  “SHARE the Magic”, the ONLY full length family magic show with proceeds going directly to the SHARE Food Bank. With the huge success of  ”SHARE the Magic” 2011, we are more than excited for this year’s show. Last year the Terry Fox Theatre was SOLD OUT and we raised over one thousand dollars and boxes upon boxes of food for SHARE during their high-need Christmas season.

“SHARE the Magic” 2012 will feature the amazing talents of Award Winning magicians Bruce Meyers, Zany Zack and Wes Barker as seen on Canada’s Got Talent!

The show will be hosted by Alex Seaman.
