Norden names Children’s Magician of the Year

The Mission entertainer has earned the award eight times

Mission’s Norden the Magician earned his eighth Children’s Magician of the Year honour earlier this month.

Norden performed his 10-minute act in Burbank, Calif. at the Pacific Coast Association of Magicians (PCAM)’s 80th annual convention. This association represents more than 1,000 magicians on the coast from Alaska to California, with representatives from Japan and Australia.

Norden and his business partner, Gord Boyes, also earned first place in the duo improv magic event, defeating a number of other professionals.

With the win Norden has completed the Grand Slam of awards this year, winning first place in Comedy, Children’s, Variety Arts, and the Fraser Valley Magic Circle’s Celeste Evans award for his dedication to the art of magic.

Norden will be appearing at the FVMC’s monthly show at Mission’s Opening Nite Theatre on the third Monday of each month. Tickets are $10. Two other award-winning children’s entertainers will be performing, The Great Gordini and Tricky Ricky.
