Happy New Year!
And what a new year this will be for Magicana!
First, we want to remind young magicians that this is the last week before the Tony Eng Youth Fund CAM contest concludes. Here is a chance to win a FREE TRIP to attend the Canadian Association of Magicians Convention in Kitchener-Waterloo. We are giving away two return airfares, three nights of accommodations at the host hotel and two convention registrations, cou
rtesy of Magicana’s Tony Eng Youth Fund, Kent Wong and CAM. This convention will feature a host of international superstars: Lennart Green, Tim Ellis and Sue-Anne Webster, Henry Evans, Shawn Farquhar, Charlie Frye & Company, Mark Mason, Marc Oberon, Stoil & Ekaterina along with MANY others! But the youth contest closes this Friday on January 15th. This is the last chance for young people to take advantage of this fabulous prize package!
Next, as we announced previously, Magicana is the new steward of the Magic Collectors’ Association (MCA). We are currently preparing to release the MCA’s quarterly magazine, Magicol, in February. If you have any interest in collecting magic and/or the history of magic, you may want to join! Magicana is also programming and producing the 2010 Magic Collector’s Weekend in Chicago. This event is limited to only 200 participants so if you want to go, register today! Keep your eyes peeled here for the launch date announcement of our MCA blog.
MAGIC IN THE COMMUNITY
After a holiday break, our community outreach programs are also back in full swing. Magicana is working with Bloorview Kids Rehab and Havergal College to bring more My Magic Hands to children across the GTA. We are also expanding our Senior Sorcery program – which features both strolling and stage magic – to new areas of Toronto and surrounding areas.
AND MORE SECRETS!
We are working on several secret projects from publications, to announcements, to performances — our followers will always be the first to know! Follow us or subscribe to our eList to stay up-to-date.
One thing we can promise is that we have a lot of magic on the horizon! Keep a look out!
