Las Vegas is a land of lights,
glitz and glamour - and
home to one of magic’s most
exciting events ... the annual
World Magic Seminar.
A team of six from the College of Magic travelled to
Las Vegas to share with the
world our special brand of
African magic.
Above: Siphiwe Fangase & Nkumbuzo Nkonyana had Las Vegas
alive with the magic of their Laduma 2010 soccer act.
Kicking off the excitement was
the Lance Burton Teen Weekend - an exclusive
gathering just for the teen delegates taking place
the weekend before the actual Seminar. College
students Nicholas Andrews, Siphiwe Fangase,
Michelle Gore & Nkumbuzo Nkonyana joined a
select group of young magicians from across the
globe ... receiving in-depth instruction from such
luminaries as Jeff McBride, Max Maven, Eugene
Burger & Mac King. The weekend culminated in
a one-of-a-kind luncheon for the students at Lance
Burton’s castle that attracted the who’s who of
magic including Banachek, Johnny Thompson as
well as Criss Angel.
The undeniable highlight of the World Magic
Seminar is always the International Teen Contest.
Course 5 student, Nicholas Andrews, performed an
emotion filled act to the haunting strains of Billy
Elliot’s Electricity. Nicholas’ poignant portrayal of
a child discovering the memories of his late grandfather combined with a dazzling display of skill,
left many in the audience with a tear in their eye.
Siphiwe Fangase & Nkumbuzo Nkonyana
brought, too, their own personalities to the stage in
an action packed, comic marathon of a soccer act
featuring a new twist to the much loved sawing in
half illusion. With an end flourish of gigantic soccer balls cascading into the audience, no one could
help but be swept away with 2010 soccer fever.
So unique was the act, that the duo performers
brought home to South Africa the coveted
SARMOTI Legacy Award for Creativity & Originality. A stunning triumph indeed!
NEWS update
THIS IS NOT MAC KING: The College celebrated its 29th birthday with an exclusive
performance by those icons of style, kings of cool, legends of international theatre,
performers of the mysterious ( and hilarious ) - Deb & Don - whose rendition of the
Zig-Zag set a new standard for us all ...

Joshua Jay
he College of Magic is fortunate
to be welcoming another superstar
of magic to South Africa - Joshua
Jay! Joshua Jay is one of the best of his
generation. Michael Ammar claims: “Josh
Jay rocks.” Greg Wilson calls him “The
anti-Criss Angel.” Named International
Magician of the Year - Josh is unlike any
performer you’ve come across.
Joshua Jay is truly a phenomenon in magic - MAGIC Magazine’s most celebrated
columnist for the last seven years, author
of numerous best-selling trade books (the
first published in five languages), star of
DVDs, Champion at the World Magic
Seminar, featured on ABC, CBS & CNN,
TV appearances in no less than eight
countries - the list goes on and on ...
But for many in the magic community,
Joshua Jay’s most interesting performance venue is his time spent with other
magicians. Over the past three years,
this true professional has toured FIFTYFOUR countries, allowing him to hone
his art into one of the most mind-blowing
sessions of its kind. And now it’s South
Africa’s turn!
Taking place at the College of Magic on
the 16 & 17th May, students will spend
the weekend in the company of one of
the world’s best instructors of magic.
Josh will teach his most closely guarded
routines & share secrets behind some of
the most jaw dropping magic imaginable.
Marvel at the genius behind his greatest
creations. Discuss the mechanics behind
the technique, jam the day away, see a
classic of magic rediscovered and learn
some of the most unbelievable magic ever
... and that’s only the beginning !
“I always tell
people I didn’t
find magic. Magic
found me.”
you’ve never seen here. Joshua lectures
on bonus routines that he has never tipped
before, and shares unique insights into
performing and creating.
“Good magic hides the trick,” he says.
“Great magic reveals some sort of truth.
It’s a form of self-expression. I want my
magic to be meaningful. I want people
to find more in it than deception. People
should enjoy it, of course, but they should
also feel connected to others through it
and to reconsider what they think they
know and the way they perceive things.”
Joshua does plenty of things that will
make you reconsider what you think you
know. His main performance style is
close-up. Coins, ropes, even a television
remote—vanishing, stretching, and defying expectations in countless other ways.
But his passion is cards. (“I’m up to two
packs a day,” he says.) Not your uncle’s
card tricks, mind you. These are headturning, jaw-dropping pieces of perfection
that have garnered Joshua international
renown as a magician extraordinaire.
Joshua’s magic is up-close and personal—
simple, clear and undeniable. It happens
when you’re watching, no matter how
close you’re watching. The secret is right
in front of you.
And the secret is Joshua.
You’ll learn not only powerful, roadtested magic, but more importantly, you’ll
discover how to elevate your magic from
the mundane to the miraculous. Whether
your interests run to cards, coins, closeup, parlour, stage, mentalism or walk
around - whether you are just a beginner
or a superstar in the making - Joshua Jay
If you have never seen Joshua live, he is
unlike any performer you have ever seen:
interactive, fast-paced, contemporary and
packed with the most diabolical magic
you will use. If you have seen Joshua lecture before, there is STILL tons of content
Don’t miss out ...

Secret Session 16 & 17 May
biz Mania
As the Cape Town winter welcomed
a wet crowd to the Annual Children’s
Magic Festival, they were suitably
warmed by the fare on offer – and
in a brand new venue, the College’s
Imagination Centre, featuring its first
major event … loads of fun was had
by all – both visiting little ones, and
their young-at-heart escorts, and the
enthusiastic and creative cast of College students and ‘guest graduates’
Matthew Gore, Craig Mitchell, Marcel
Pretorius and Ryan Sharp. Whoops of
joy and screams of laughter filled the
air. Juggling, circus, teach-a-trick, stage
shenanigans, young close-up stars,
sweet treats and colourful clowns were
the order of the day – for the week…
This culminated in a great show and
teach-in by visiting American magician, Bill Herz, and family, who also
provided a delicious pizza dinner for
top student College supporters – certainly a week to remember!
Our very own sleight-of-hand maestro,
Stuart Lightbody, went public with his
Professional Show ‘52’ which played at
the Kalk Bay Theatre. In the lovely, intimate setting Stuart kept his audiences
mesmerised with not only his skilful
sleights and amazing card control, but
also with his dreamy story-telling ability – a show not to be missed!
Another Pro Show hitting the circuit
was Aidan’s Bryan Miles’ ‘Theatre of
the Mind’ at the Intimate Theatre in
Cape Town. Intriguing, amusing, puzzling, mind-boggling – what a wonderful display of a magical technique with
a difference – if you get a chance to
see his show – go!
Stars of Comedy & Magic is a not to be missed event on
the magic calendar. Past stars included Riaad Moosa,
Monica Nyakatya, Ryan Sharp & Erika Swart of The
Mystiques, Stuart Taylor, Bryan Miles and Tanya Nefdt
of ETV fame.
It was Festival Time in Grahamstown
and Chad Findlay (giving his glorious
voice a break from hectic rehearsals for Artscape’s My Fair Lady) and
Lance Job braved the Eastern Cape
temperatures, taking the talented team
of Mawonga Gayiya, Alex Gregory
and Monica Nyakatya to warm the
hearts of patrons with their awardwinning acts.
Back home, young College entertainers kept the art alive by participating in
the Annual Close-up and Stage Contests, strutting their stuff and showing
their skills – with excited students
thrilled as they claimed top honours in
their respective categories – well done
guys, and keep up the inspiration!
Gracing the stage at Artscape Theatre
was the incredible Stars of Comedy
and Magic Show. This popular medley
of mirth and magic was once again
sold out and showcased South Africa’s
funny man Riaad Moosa as MC and
our own hilarious ‘Learner Husband’
Stuart Taylor showing the roots, or
is it routes, of his magic career, the
renowned ventriloquial comic Conrad
Koch with his lively, and cheeky, puppets, the enigmatic Bryan Miles, who
played mysterious mind games with
the masses, and Ryan Sharp’s amazing
Mystique of Illusions. There was quite
a buzz surrounding Ryan’s instant onstage vanish of lovely Cape Town celebrity, Tanya Nefdt… and yes, she did
come back again – some time later..
Darling – Scene of the renowned
Voorkamer Festival – saw the College
branching out as Stuart Lightbody
took his awesome sleights to the country. Stuart and his team performed in
a small home on the outskirts of Darling, where the Voorkamer had a pillar
dividing the sight lines. It was amusing
to watch as the eager audience resembled spectators at a tennis match as
eyes darted rapidly from side to side so
as not to miss any of the magical miracles. Mawonga Gayiya charmed with
his slick golfing ball magic and Monica
Nyakatya had everyone gasping as her
table floated majestically.
Magic was the name of the game and
entertaining performances was their
aim - as the year sped by with the
Salesian Youth featuring in their own
Magic DVD Shows, a College team
stunning the delegates at the World
Economic Forum Africa Summit,
Matthew Ross flying off to Canada
for the Sorcerers’ Safari and Phumile
Dyasi and company as the official
opening spot at the Early Childhood
Development Conference. Roll on the
rest of 2009 – the sky’s the limit!

A giant amongst
magicians ...
Banachek returned ‘home’ to South Africa after
30 years of absence for a special journey to
rediscover those childhood haunts never forgotten.
here are two types
of magicians in this
world ... those who
know Banachek and those
who haven’t had the privilege
of meeting this giant amongst
His background story reads
like an action thriller, his ideas
on magic revolutionary and
his contribution to the art
unparalleled. And despite this
all, Banachek is unaffected ...
quite simply one of the most
disarmingly sincere people you
will ever come across.
Having not been
back to South Africa
since 1976, Banachek’s
‘homecoming’ was a special
journey - not just for those
fortunate enough to spend the
weekend in his company at
the College of Magic - but for
himself personally as well.
Banachek truly opened his heart
to those assembled - magicians,
graduates, students & friends
from across the country were
treated to an inside look in the
mind of one of magic’s greatest.
Open and honest, no holds
barred - this was Banachek
giving of his all. And give he did.
Playing to a packed audience at
the Baxter Theatre, he mystified,
amazed, and entertained
leaving no doubt in anyone’s
mind that Cape Town had been
in the presence of someone
Some visitors come & go - but
Banachek and Heidi share a
special place in all our hearts.
Let’s hope that it’s not long
before they come ‘home’ again.
There are two types of
magicians in this world ... those
who know Heidi and those
who haven’t had the privilege
of meeting this giant amongst
magicians ... but that is a
another whole story ;-)

The 2009 Course One classes were quick
to explore their magical new ‘home’ with
teachers Hayley Tomes and Phumile
Dyasi waving the wand. High school students found themselves in the illustrious

magical direction by David Gore, Lance

Many are unaware that the College’s
teaching staff are purely voluntary - and
drawn nearly exclusively from our graduate body who freely give of their time to
give back to the art. The new-look 2009
teaching staff comprises graduates from
last year’s staff training programme.
Andrew Klazinga is helping make
technical magic in the Theatre Production department, Tim Gore is bringing his
close-up skills into Course 3 while Adri
du Toit is injecting new vigour into the
senior stage magic training. In the library

an amazing transformation thanks to
the completion of Phase One of the
Imagination Centre - our fantastic new
multi-purpose addition to the building.
Ask any staff member and the response
is the same - “how did we ever manage
without it ?” Phase Two will see further
development of the interior, verandah,
Secret Garden and surrounds. Those new

in touch with the heart ...
There’s been an amazing upsurge in ‘heart matters’ at the College of Magic with the number of students doing
charity shows on the rise. They are experiencing the warmth of giving and sharing and they have started an exciting
wave of discovery – get out there, reach out, and a warm magical feeling comes bounding back … The Course 5 class has
been caught up in the movement and Yuveer Maharaj in Course 6 is championing the cause – calling on all out there to get
with the programme! They have performed at fetes,
schools, hospitals, retirement homes,
clowning, conjuring &
caring, having fun
all the while.
