It’s not every day you see an opportunity for a paid internship in the 21st century, but Champions of Magic is currently seeking a young magician to help out backstage for a few months on its upcoming US tour.
The British magic show is finishing up its UK tour in May 2018, and will be heading across the pond to the US in June, slated to kick off in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and running through January 2019. The production is currently looking for a “young up-and-coming magician” to help both on- and off-stage, build and strike the set, and even perform a little magic at the merch booth.
It sounds like a fantastic opportunity for anyone looking to dive into showbiz with some real, hands-on work for a prestigious magic tour alongside the likes of Young & Strange, Alex McAleer, Kayla Drescher, and Fernando Velasco.
If you want to get your foot in the door (and you’re able to meet the necessary requirements), then check out the details provided by Champions of Magic below on how you can apply for the gig:
