Comedy Magic Returns To Entertain & Surprise At The Playhouse Theatre, Somerset West

Written by

Audiences are certain to be captivated and laughing when magician Marcel Oudejans returns to The Playhouse Theatre (Lourensford Road, Somerset West), with his comedy-infused show, “Sleight Of Mouth: The Art Of Talking Your Way Out Of Anything”, on Friday 23rd & Saturday 24th August 2013 at 20h00. 

Suitable for all ages, the show is witty, sophisticated and includes lots of audience interaction. You'll be amazed to see huge objects produced, minds read, needles consumed, and cutlery melting into pieces – leaving you wondering what will happen next! 

Oudejans, who had his festival-debut at this year's National Arts Festival Fringe in Grahamstown, has been performing professionally as an entertainer for well over a decade. His shows include three years performing for the Madame Zingara restaurant group, and performances at casinos, luxury hotels, and for hundreds of blue-chip corporate audiences. Marcel also represented South African magic at the 'Vismayam International Magic Convention' in India in May 2008. His performances at The Playhouse in 2011 were well-received by local audiences, with some traveling from as far as Muizenberg to enjoy the show. 

The Cape Times describes his act as one “… of deceptions,belly laughter and lots of surprised gasps.”. It's a perfectly blended combination of classical sleight-of-hand magic, eye-popping visual illusions, modern-day humour and wit that makes you stare in wonder and surprise - and leaves you laughing out loud. 

Do not miss this opportunity to enjoy the talents of a thoroughly professional and engaging entertainer : “Sleight of Mouth is worth seeing for the laughter and surprises” ('Cue' review, National Arts Festival 2013).
