For the love of magic… a reflection on Top Hat Tuesdays.
It’s hard to believe, but as 2014 draws to a close, Top Hat Tuesdays has been running for two and half years! It seems like only yesterday that we humbly debuted our variety magic show at Charltons in June 2012. Since then, it has grown and evolved into one of my proudest achievements. But I certainly cannot keep all the credit to myself. The show simply would not exist without the dedication of my fellow producers: Siew-Li Hodge, Tayissa Artomonow and Dom Chambers (pictured). These are the tireless faces behind the scenes – wonderful people driven only by their passion for the art.
But the support doesn’t end there! At every show, performers present their acts for a fraction of their professional fees (a mere token, in fact). These magicians are supporting our show because they love magic, they love the atmosphere, and above all, they love putting a smile on people’s faces. Melbourne is lucky to be home to some of the world’s greatest magicians and most vibrant magic scenes, and I feel absolutely privileged to be a part of it. And the best news – everyone can be a part of it! Because, when all is said and done, the real reason Top Hat Tuesday exists, is because of YOU. The fun-loving Melbournian. No matter who you are, what your background is, or what walk of life you’re in, our little show is here to bring a spark to your eye.
So I hope you can join me on Cup Day as I host our next edition of Top Hat Tuesday. You know it might just be the touch of magic you’re looking for 😉
