ENCHANTED, a thrilling new international cirque production, is set to open this September in Cape Town for a limited season. Produced and directed by Sebastian Cassie and presented by Showcasting, ENCHANTED will merge some of the world's finest entertainment artists with a top South African creative team. Billed as a thrilling cirque production with mesmerising acts that have never been seen in South Africa, ENCHANTED will be performed in a beautiful 450-seat spiegeltent shipped directly from Belgium and constructed by renowned Belgian tent master, Rik Klessens. Elements within include an interactive zone, VIP bars serving premium brands, an oyster and bubbly booth, an accessory store and delicious fare, making this a truly decadent night out in the Mother City.

Hosted by top South African comedienne Mel Jones and Piky Pokus from Argentina, the superstar acts lined up include crossbow contortionist and silk artist Orissa Kelly, cloud swing and hoop artist Tom McKinnon, laser and bubble magic man Thomas Favaro, a disco inspired roller skating pair, a heart-stopping knife throwing duo, and many more.

The magic will unfold the moment glamorous guests step inside the opulent venue to be greeted by quirky ENCHANTED artists, setting the tone for a fabulous evening. After feasting on tasty tapas platters and enjoying the two-hour show, the resident DJ will take over, and the audience can party with the cast, late into the night.

ENCHANTED brings together the best of the outstanding spiegeltent shows that have preceded it, with a solid emphasis on incredible artistry. All of the artists are world-class international performers, and the show has an engaging narrative running throughout in the style of nouveau-cirque productions. ENCHANTED promises to be cirque redefined, in an intimate setting with a fabulous service offering.

Cassie, who hails from Cape Town and grew up in New Zealand says:

Having the opportunity to bring this enchanting and unique production to my home country is a dream fulfilled.
