“We are excited to welcome Dynamo to South Africa and give his many fans with the opportunity to see his magic skills in what is a spectacular and unique live stage production,” says Showtime’s Tony Feldman.

Dynamo, whose real name is Steven Frayne, is well-known for his multiple award-winning television series Magician Impossible, which saw Dynamo visit 10 countries and astonish thousands of people across the continents. In a short time, he quickly established himself as one of the world’s most popular and best-loved magicians, with his series airing in over 180 territories worldwide, reaching over 400 million cumulative viewers globally. He’s the first magician in history to headline the world-famous O2 Arena in London and he was awarded the highest accolade by the magic circle with his promotion to a member of the Inner Magic Circle with Gold Star, a position only held by 300 magicians worldwide.



Dynamo said of his stage venture: “After four series of Magician Impossible I was ready for a new challenge and for a long time I wanted to take my show to the stage. Like I did for magic on TV, the live magic show offers fans an entertainment experience never seen before. I can’t wait to amaze South African audiences with what I have in store for them.”

After the television series, Dynamo’s Seeing is Believing stage show quickly erupted from a 10-date run into a year-long world tour as he filled arenas by playing 127 shows with over 600,000 plus tickets sold making it one of the largest scale magic shows in the world.


Dynamo ‘fever’ spread resulting in the highly successful Dynamo UK tour that sold out on 400,000 tickets and the Australia tour sold out on 100,000 tickets. Not only has he redefined the shape of modern magic for the millennial generation much like Blaine in the late 90s and David Copperfield in the 80s; Dynamo’s approach to large-scale illusion (the big stunts are never pre-publicised and use well-known landmarks as their backdrop) has allowed him to connect with young people and re-energise the genre in a way not seen for a generation.

“I honestly believe people need magic in their lives as it brings a sense of hope and wonder that is often lost in the day-to-day,” he said in a recent interview. “Everyone needs magic in their lives,” he added.

Tickets are on sale at Computicket.
