Wellington’s Top Magicians Are Putting on a Show

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

WELLINGTON’S TOP MAGICIANS ARE PUTTING ON A SHOW

Wellington Magic Club is putting on a show. Their newly elected President, Jeremy Rolston, has taken on the role of curating and directing their annual end-of-year show, “Magicians of Wellington” along with the help of Kade Nightingale.

Previously held at Newtown Community Hall, the club members decided to perform at BATS Theatre this year to cater for the growing fan base.

“Holding the show at BATS provides our members with the opportunity to perform a longer season to a larger audience each night” says the club’s President. “All of the performers are extremely passionate about their craft, and are really excited to show the public what they have been working on.”

Comedian James Nokise will host the show while a variety of magicians from the club perform their own unique styles of magic. “Magicians of Wellington” will run from 24th – 26th November at BATS Theatre, Wellington.

“Magic in the capital is humming along nicely” says Rolston who manages the club of 26 members. “We‘re presenting this show to further the art of magic in Wellington, but also to provide our members an opportunity to perform in a public theatre setting”.

Rolston was sworn in as President at the club’s October AGM, hot on the heels of being awarded the New Zealand Champion of Parlour Magic at the last national magic competitions. “I’m really looking forward to raising the profile of magic here in the Capital, and helping grow the club”.

The Wellington Magic Club was founded in 2012 and since then has produced two end-of-year shows at Newtown Community Hall in 2013 and 2014. Last year, the club hosted the 32nd New Zealand International Magicians’ Convention which saw 150 magicians from Australia and New Zealand decend on the Capital to attend the 3-day event. The convention included the national magic competitions, lectures from eight world-leading international magicians who also performed in two sold out public shows at the Wellington Opera House.

The show “Magicians of Wellington” will run from 24th – 26th November at BATS theatre, 6.30pm with a matinee at 2.00pm on 26th November. Tickets can be booked at www.bats.co.nz, $13 - $18.
