Magicana and Luminato 2011: Masters of Magic

We’re back!

As Luminato, Toronto’s festival of creativity and the arts, has just announced, we will be part of festival’s Masters of Magic series June 10-18th.

Magicana will be presenting three distinct programs in June: Natural Magick, Vodavil and Eric Mead: Toast of the Town.  Magicana will also be presenting its community outreach program, My Magic Hands, at Holland-Bloorview Kid’s Rehabilitation Hospital, and at Queen Victoria Public School.

Stay tuned because our artistic director, David Ben, will be discussing the ins and outs of the various shows over the coming weeks.  At this stage, if you love magic, Toronto is the place to be between June 10-18th.

Tickets will go on sale in Mid-April. We will be giving an advance purchase option to subscribers, so make sure that you join the Magicana eList to receive word.
