Following a global magical tour, award-winning sleight-of-hand artist Stuart Lightbody returns home to Cape Town this winter to present his breathtaking new show, Unique Wonders, at the Alexander Upstairs theatre, from Monday 31 July to Saturday 19 August.

Directed by Tara Notcutt, the 75-minute Unique Wonders show will see the two-time South African Close-up Magic champion use his signature style of magic and sleight of hand to take audiences on a journey into the magician’s mind, a place where anything and everything is possible.

Each night willing audience members are given a key to explore Lightbody’s mind and get to choose from the many strange objects available on stage, deciding themselves which wonders unfold. No two performances are alike and this is the wonderful, irresistible appeal of Unique Wonders.

With several international accolades to his name, Lightbody has been captivating the imaginations of international and local audiences for almost 20 years.

Unique Wonders offers a one-of-a-kind experience. Not just because each night the audience will decide on many of the pieces in the show, but because the adventure doesn’t end there.

“After the show, everyone is invited to explore deeper. An even more immersive experience of wonder is available if they follow the clues, to see where their curiosity takes them and what their key opens. This show is guaranteed to be unlike anything Cape Town audiences have ever seen before.”

V Stuart Lightbody’s Unique Wonders runs at the Alexander Upstairs theatre at 21:00 every evening (except Sundays). Tickets are R140 or R120 online at alexanderbar.co.za/show/uniquewonders or 021 300 1652.
