Call for Volunteers!

Be A Part of Magic!

Seeking volunteer magicians/performers for a Luminato show.

No experience required.

Can the non-sighted experience the same sense of astonishment that those with sight feel when witnessing magic? For Chilean magician Juan Esteban Varela, anyone with an imagination can transform fantasy into reality. In From the Dark, he does just that. Each audience member is blindfolded, provided with a box of props and then, individually and collectively, directed by him to create magical feats. It is a unique and thrilling experience.

We are looking for volunteer magicians/performers to help make the magic happen!

From the Dark offers audiences the chance to experience magic through touch, sound and smell, but it relies on assistants to work with small groups of audience members, providing instruction and assisting in the execution of the tricks.

Volunteers will be needed for:

–       one training session in advance of the festival (May 26, 29 or June 5)

–       Friday, June 15, 2PM-10:30PM

–       Saturday, June 16, 7PM-10:30PM

–       Sunday, June 17, 1PM-4:30PM

Volunteers must be 18 years or older and should have an interest in magic or theatre, be strong public speakers and have a passion for performance. A background in magic or theatre is an asset. Please note: Volunteers will be working in the dark (with small flashlights) and must be comfortable in this environment.

To apply for this position, please send an email to Mitchell ( with your resume by 5pm on May 11. Please include a contact number and a brief (100 words or less) description of your theatre/magic background and your interest in this position.

Please note that this is a Toronto-based opportunity, meaning all training and actual volunteering will be held in Toronto. Call times subject to change.
