On a recent magical night students of the College of Magic were honoured at a ceremony in Plumstead when they graduated on Saturday 25 November

The show-stoppers were Andrew Kla­zinga (26) from Constantia and Siphe­sihle Ndayi (19) from Khayelitsha, who were given silver medals at the school’s annual graduation ceremony

Now in its 37th year, the College of Magic, based in Claremont, is the only organisation of its kind in the world and offers a six-year on-campus diploma that covers all aspects of the magic theatrical performing arts.

The silver medal is awarded to graduates who have finished their training, graduated with their silver ribbons and return to the college to present a qualifying act performed for public audiences in the fields of either close-up magic, stage magic, children’s magic or the allied arts.

Capetonian audiences were recently dazzled by Ndayi’s close-up magic performance at this year’s Western Cape junior magician championships held at Bergvliet High School in September, which won him the runner-up champion award.

Klazinga had a one-man magic show at the Cape Town Fringe Festival in October called If I really did have powers, it would look something like this.

Klazinga and Ndayi says they are honoured to be awarded the silver medallions this year. The College of Magic helped to nurture their passion for magic and it has been a privilege to share the acts that have inspired the public and the organisation, they say.

They were honoured alongside fellow graduates, staff and students. Attendees received awards for long service, community service and excellence in magic theatrical performance and its allied arts. V For more information visit www.collegeof­magic.­com or call 021 683 5480.
