Magic Africa Productions is a creative consulting and magical entertainment production company, with a wide network of professional performing artists & presenters across Africa. The company was founded by Managing Director & Executive Producer Marcel Oudejans, who works closely with a core group of professional creatives and entertainers to coordinate the network & make magical experiences a reality across Africa.
Together the team has over 100 years of professional expertise & experience.
Frustrated by the limited public perception of magic, & the lack of cooperation among magicians in his home city of Cape Town, South Africa, Marcel felt compelled to try something different. Inspired by ‘Monday Night Magic’, long-running initiatives in London and New York, he founded The Cape Town Magic Club. The philosophy of the Club was simple, give young local talent a chance to perform professionally on a line-up with South Africa’s best magicians, mentalists, & illusionists, & produce high quality shows regularly accessible to the public. To date, the Cape Town Magic Club has produced over 100 different shows across seven seasons in a variety of amazing venues in and around Cape Town. Based on the success and philosophy of the Cape Town Magic Club, Magic Africa Productions was born.
The goal of Magic Africa Productions is to be the go-to magical productions company in Africa, by promoting magical entertainment throughout Africa, educating our clients about the diverse value magic can bring to an event, & by nurturing & supporting young African talent to hone their craft & deliver exceptional service.
Magic Africa Productions can provide creative consulting for events, shows, & film productions; source the best African talent available; & create magically-themed, custom-designed corporate gifts, props, & illusion experiences.

What an ama zing evening! Fun and disbelief amongst the coffee beans. Popcorn a nice touch. Many thanks.
Simply amazing venue and experience, Monday Night Magic is a must do experience if you are visiting Cape Town, or if you are a local.
What an awesome night out, with loads of laughs and completely mind boggling acts! A definite "must do" in Cape Town!
Great night out. Even with kids (provided they don’t step over the adult joke line too much )
What a magical night, indeed. Attention to detail and magic that will leave you pondering for ages! We had a truly fantastic time. It was like we were transported somewhere else. What a great evening More...
My husband and I had a magical nigh out on Monday.. We love the venue, perfect ambiance. The 2 lovely ladies who greeted us in the beautiful foyer were delightful. Loved their outfits. The magic performed by the 3 different artists on the night, was excellent and made for a thoroughly entertaining.and affordable evening out. More...
A really good night made special by the interaction between performers and patrons. Leave the adult behind, embrace your inner child and you will leave full of awe and wonder! Will see you all again.
Congrats to Marcel for creating a unique place of entertainment! Thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of this awesome little venue. I enjoyed it so much I stayed for the second show to see performers do it all again! As a dedicated magic hobbyist of many years, I had a wonderful evening and will definitely be back. More...
Excellent line-up and wonderful entertainment, an evening well spent. It was also great that the club gave a new magician some stage time. Thanks everyone and especially Marcel! More...
One of the best hidden gems to enjoy in Cape Town.

What a magical and unique experience!!! From the moment I arrived last night I was transported into another world. The venue is perfect, there is attention to every detail from the costumed lady that attends to you at the entrance to the mysterious smoky ambience around the theatre itself, setting the stage for a mystical evening. The venue is beautiful, relaxed, opulent, luxurious, with creative decor and many different areas, each providing a totally different experience, creating an eventful and memorable evening. I would recommend that nobody miss this world class intimate adventure. The 40 seater theatre allows the entire audience to be up close and personal with the magicians, all of whom were outstanding last night. As an entertainment agent I appreciate all the work that has gone into this venture, the absolute professionalism surrounding everything, the unique concept and extraordinary talent that create the amazing experience that the Cape Town Magic Club offers. The magic is mind blowing, the comedy uplifting and it was wonderful to finally meet Robin Boltman, a connoisseur of magic whom I had the privilege to book many years back but met in person for the first time last night. Also to reconnect with Jacques le Sueur, one of the world's masters of close up magic and to meet Marcel, the mastermind and driving force behind it all, with an ability to bend cutlery that will leave you speechless. As the consummate host, it was lovely to be shown around by him and talk about his vision for the future. Clearly everyone that was there last night, from the audience to all those that make Monday nights so magical at the Magic Club, is passionate about magic, and the magicians give one the sense that together we all created a magical unforgettable evening. I was lucky to go on a night that featured a surprise guest magician and was captivated throughout the show by the quality and variety of magic on stage and the magicians' charming personalities. A 5 star experience that makes me proud to be part of the Cape Town entertainment industry! More...
Cape Town, are you ready for this? Monday Night Magic at the Cape Town Magic Club is here and nightlife in the Mother City will never be the same!
A sexy, mysterious venue, incredibly talented performers and a guaranteed amazing night out…
Bravo, Marcel and co – I am still floating on a magical high after last night’s launch ;)
Cape Town Magic Club is THE new IT spot – be sure to check it out ;) More...
What an experience! I loved every moment.
The setting is perfect and does an excellent job of highlighting the intimacy of the performances. The show itself is a very welcome twist on what one would expect, with a few acts that are still baffling me a few days after the show.
It comes highly recommended and they will definitely be seeing me there again! More...

Great fun - top magic and good laughs for all ages. We went with a group including my 83 year old mum and my 9 year old son - everyone thought it was brilliant. Bar for a drink before the show also great. More...
Didn’t expect the guys to come be so funny. Magic and mentalist combined well. Nice intimate venue. Guys super friendly before and after the show. Thanks
My wife and I just loved the night out at the Cape Town Magic Club. A time to break away from all reality and enjoy being taken on a magical carpet ride through all the different illusions and setups. Great performances and a night to remember. Well worth the money and time. More...
Throw away your preconceived ideas of a magician in a top hat at a child's birthday party..... This is close up , sophisticated magic featuring South Africa's best professional magicians. An intimate venue where the magic happens in front of your eyes, with healthy doses of comedy, illusion, mind reading and and jaw dropping sleight of hand. For an evening of fun and amazement head over to the Cape Town Club, through a secret doorway, into the intimate theatre and bar. Two shows every `Monday while the season lasts.If you love magic you will LOVEi it, if you think you DON'T like magic, I urge you to come along and have your mind changed! ( Or have your mind read!) Go! More...
A very entertaining night out :D 10/10 would go again
Cindy Heydenrych Pivacic

What a night out to remember - i will always look forward to seeing my next Magic Show!
Amazing time had by the whole group...true old school entertainment!
Loved it!! Well done!! Highly recommended. We will be back.
What an experience! I loved every moment.

What a must see show. I believe in MAGIC�����
Cape Town Magic Club is well run and a briiliant night out with lots of amazement in the Show
The Cape Town Magic Club has new premises but change, in this case, is definitely a good thing! The hidden Truth Coffee Roasting chamber is the perfect location for a night of magical mischief with some of Africa's top magicians, including world magic champions. The performer roster changes weekly and if opening night is anything to go by, magic lovers are in for the most spectacular treat of their lives! Book your tickets TODAY because shows sell out pretty quickly.The venue's steam punk decor lends just the right edgy atmosphere to the jaw-dropping effects you'll see performed by the illusionists on stage. An early arrival for the two shows per Monday night ensures great seats. Pre-show, enjoy a tasty Original Masons'cocktail or indulge in one of Truth's signature coffee blends -they are magical!Monday Night Magic at the Cape Town Magic Club is your must-do experience in the Mother City. More...
This is a one of a kind experience in an intimate setting in the "bean Chamber" at the back of the world renowned Truth Coffee Shop. The Magicians are all professionals and entertain you with unbelievable acts right before your eyes. Not to be missed! More...
Recommended. Went to watch the early show last night. The experience is cool, they make it magical. Hidden bar, dark "theatre", engaging(and funny) host with two great acts. Greg even came up to us before the show and started up some conversation(Us having never been to anything like that before) More...
A magical experience. Funny, spellbinding, breathtaking. A wonderfully intimate venue from the moment we arrived. Will definitely be back for the next season. Anyone looking for a night out with a difference, this is it! More...
Awesome show! Will definitely recommend it to anyone visiting Cape Town.
Such an amazing experience! Wish the show was longer and that I discovered this place sooner!
Great venue, great host, great magic, great fun. Go see it, do it now!
A visit well worth the experience and intriguing talent ...truly Magical !!
An excellent show in a fantastic venue. A great way to spend an evening. The venue is small so be sure to book tickets early !
What an amazing venue and experience! The world class magicians wowed us with magic and comedy. The venue is hidden under the prestigious Cape Town Club, and has a US prohibition-era speakeasy vibe to it. Monday Night Magic is a must do if you're visiting Cape Town or if you are a local. More...
The newly established club had a vintage and authentic atmosphere with that inner-circle feeling. The place really has great potential.
What a great evening at the Cape Town Magic Club launch. The venue (Cape Town Club) matched the "magic" of the evening, with its old worlde charm. The parking directly opposite the venue was also great... in a quiet area of town, so there was ample space and a hotfooted car guard keeping an eye on things. Into the foyer, to be greeted by two beauty's dressed in the Olde Worlde charm (the roaring twenties come to mind). The inner sactum where performance is held, has a bar and sitting room to take the weight off. Old posters of Thurston, Houdini and the like adorn the walls. An upstairs bar where you may also smoke. To the performances: Robin Boltman (Cruise ship hero)... funny!; Marcel Oudejans (MC, host and organiser of the Cape Town Magic Club) showed us his magic box from 9 years old... also funny; Mawonga Gayiya...poor chaps voice was going after back to back performances... also funny; Jesse Brooks... good to see Jesse performing, have seen him around over many years, but never performing, a nice rope (snake) routine (also funny); Jacques le Sueur... started performing almost in mime (his mouth was taped shut... apparently someone told him he talks to much... only joking)... so it was great to see people responding to his eyebrows lifting and hands indicating (especially when he was stealing some poor fellows watch (remember you can buy his watch dvd- he is famous for it)... and also funny; Brian Miles ... did his inimitable mentalism and had people wondering; last but not least Andrew Eland (Magic Man)... Andrew is back from Canada (he is an old Capetonian)... great to see his act again after so many years (if anything you will remember that he is Magic Man- the buttons adorning his attire are numerous (but understated) - even on his sock... Also very funny.So, thanks for the invite Cape Town Magic Club... a memorable evening... will be sure to take in some of the acts again. More...
Truly an amazing show, with plenty of laughter and some incredible magic. A great night out
Awesome night. Venue is fantastic and acts superb. Well worth a visit, will definitely be returning.
