National Seniors Day

Magicana Senior Sorcery 9

“The crowd loved her!!”

– Janet Keenan, Team Leader

To celebrate National Seniors Day on October 1st, Julie Eng visited St. Aidan’s Anglican Church where Neighbourhood Link held their annual event for senior citizens in Toronto.

With over 100 people in attendance, the day was comprised of a free lunch and amazing entertainment that included musical performances by The Orvilles and the Chinese Seniors Choir, and of course, live magical theatre by yours truly, Seniors Sorcery! There were also tons of activities, games and draws for prizes.

Neighbourhood Link Support Services is a community outreach program that aims to identify needs in the community and provide services, such as workshops and recreational events, to enable people to live with dignity and independence.  They also have a great support system for  seniors in Toronto – an Adult Day Program that provides care and support through recreational activities to frail seniors and those with cognitive impairments to minimize their isolation and promote their physical and emotional health in a safe and friendly environment.

And thank you for allowing us to share mystery and magic on National Seniors Day!

The Gift of Giving

Magicana subsidizes these  shows for centres under budgetary constraints to ensure that magic can be shared throughout the Greater Toronto Area and beyond.

This year, we a hit a record of 52 Senior Sorcery shows for senior centres and residences — that’s approximately one show every week!

Our performers went to St. Catherines, Barrie and even in the beautiful banks of Big Rideau Lake to perform. We hope we created a memorable feats of magic and excitement for seniors and residents and look forward to bringing magic to new centres in the new year.

We are now booking for 2013. We encourage you to consider our magic for your entertainment programming. If you’d like to book a magician for your residence, contact our program coordinator, Ellise Ramos at ellise@magicana.com  for  our availability.

 

 

Magic to talk about, Magic to share around

Julie Eng at Kensington Gardens

One of the wonderful effects of magic is its resonance.

When executed properly, the emotions it evokes are that of mirth, mystery and wonder — a feeling that you can talk about and share for days.

The most common response we get from satisfied clients is the intensity and effectiveness our magic shows provoke, so much so that residents and staff members still talk about the show after. Sheila McConnell, Program Manager of Leisureworld at Barrie, said:

“This was the first time I have had a magician visit the home in 7 years. The residents thoroughly enjoyed the show. [Your magician[ was outstanding. He involved the residents, staff and family members. The folks are still talking about it.”

This kind of feedback is what keeps us motivated to deliver the best we can at any time! We believe that our shows don’t just last for 45 minutes. For in that span of time, we do not just provide entertainment, we also create memories and a sense of togetherness.

We are now booking for 2013. We encourage you to consider our magic for your entertainment programming–happiness guaranteed.
