About Noel Qualter
Noel Qualter at The Magic Castle, Hollywood
Noel has performed at the world famous Magic Castle in the centre of Hollywood, just yards from the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He spent a week in the Close up Gallery performing for around twenty five guests at a time, four times a night for a week.
Magicians understand how important the Magic Castle is to the history of the art. The father of modern close up magic, Professor Dai Vernon, was resident there in the 60’s and the sleight of hand experts of the time would flock to the Magic Castle to learn from the very best. Since then the Magic Castle has been a Mecca for magicians from around the world. It started life as a private residence built in 1908 and in the 60’s the Larsen family renovated the building to become what we now know as the Magic Castle. These days’ celebs flock to be seen at the home of magic.
Aside from magic, there’s a lot to see at the Magic Castle. When you first arrive you have to utter the magic words to get in: “Open Sesame” and the secret bookshelf door will slide open. You can take a drink in one of the five bars, and get the ghostly Irma to play a tune on the haunted vacated piano. Every detail has been thought of and every corner of the Magic Castle brings a new delight. There is also an excellent restaurant where you can dine in style before taking in the magic shows for the night.
