If you’re trying to conjure up something free to do this weekend in Albuquerque, here’s an idea for anyone with a budding wizard in the family or a wannabe David Copperfield.

Pop on your pointy hat and shout abracadabra… The Magic and Juggling Shop in Nob Hill holds a free Magician’s Apprentice workshop on the third Saturday of every month at 11 am.

The hour-long workshop is an intro to magic for aspiring magicians aged 7 and upwards, and in an hour you probably won’t make any buildings disappear, but we’ve all got to start somewhere.

The next Magician’s Apprentice workshop is on Saturday July 21, 2012 at 11 am. No need to book in advance – just magically appear!

Even if you’re not going to the workshop, it’s worth noting that first time visitors to the store get a free magic trick when they drop in to check out the magic, juggling, and practical joke supplies.

Although the monthly Magician’s Apprentice workshops are ongoing, if you’re reading this in a future time warp from the date of posting, contact the store in case they change the schedule.

The Magic and Juggling Shop is located at 3205 Central Avenue NE

Albuquerque Magic Show: Half Price Tickets

Comments Off on Albuquerque Magic Show: Half Price Tickets

Get 50% off VIP tickets for the Albuquerque Magic Show on November 6, 2011, priced at $15 instead of the regular $30. ***UPDATE on 10/21: This deal has now sold out. But you can still get regular price show tickets…

I love magic tricks, and the Albuquerque Magic Show from November 4 – 6 at the South Broadway Cultural Center should conjure up some family fun with Hollywood magic artists. Performers including Christopher Hart, the former “chief illusion supervisor” for David Copperfield’s tour. (I too consider myself an “illusion supervisor” when I try to make my pay checks stretch to meet my bills. Know that feeling?)

Hart performed for Johnny Carson, Michael Jackson, and Muhammad Ali, and he played Thing, the disembodied hand, in various Addams Family movies. Clearly a man of many talents. He’s joined by award-winning magician Danny Cole and comic-magician Matt Marcy, and finally we hit the 505 with Albuquerque magician Jordan Jonas. Also expect strolling magicians as the audience arrives.

Regular tickets to the Albuquerque Magic Show’s five performances cost $20 for adults, $10 for kids, and $30 for VIP seating, whatever your age. (Regular online ticket purchases require a small additional service charge of about $1 to $2 per ticket, depending on the ticket type.)

But there’s a *deal* for 50% off VIP tickets at $15 for the Sunday November 6 afternoon show at 12:30 pm. (Click the Families tab at left on the link page.) The VIP tickets include a show poster, a magic trick to take home, and of course, preferred seating. The half price ticket deal is running via Albuquerque Living Social under the Families tab. As there is obviously limited space at the show, I’d buy sooner rather than later if you’re interested. The discount tickets are limited to ten per person.

Bottom line: the half price VIP ticket deal is cheaper than regular adult tickets, and also a good deal on the upgrade for kid’s tickets, assuming that show time works for you.

Even if you don’t take advantage of the discount tickets, the regular ticket prices seem splurge-worthy to see such great magicians.

South Broadway Cultural Center is located at 1025 Broadway SE.

–Tania FYI I’ve given you my Living Social affiliate link for the discount tickets. If you feel like sending a little love this way to support the ABQ on the Cheap site (it doesn’t cost you any extra), please use the links.
