This Friday, April 14th, is this month’s scheduled meeting at the Center Region Council of Governments, 2643 Gateway Drive, State College, PA 16801.
Of course there will be discussions and observations of our recent viewing of The Illusionists. Here is a suggestion for a theme this month: table magic!
Doors open around 6:00.
Your friendly Prez,
Friday December 4th 2015 we will host the 2-time Close-Up Magician of the Year and Lecturer of the Year; Eugene Burger!
When invited to dinner, at a restaurant, a party, or in a friend's home, you are often asked to perform some magic.
Eugene's lecture will focus on the material he does for this kind of show. He will also discuss the psychology of performing free shows for friends and family as opposed to shows for paying clients.
This is a rare opportunity to learn from the Dean of the coveted McBride Mystery School. No traveling, no hotels, and no $1500 admission!
Then on Saturday December 5th 12 lucky magicians will attend a 3-hour intensive workshop with Eugene! This workshop will begin with a demonstration and discussion on the effects that Eugene carries every day in his wallet. Then you'll focus on magic that uses psychology vs sleight of hand. Next you'll learn several jaw-dropping card effects. And finally take part in an open discussion where you can get Eugene's ideas on character development, script writing, the business of magic, and more!
Based on the interest so far THIS WILL SELL-OUT! If you want to take your magic to the next level SIGN UP NOW!
Lecture: $25 (Ring 352 members) $30 (non-members)
Special Workshop: $75 (limited to 12 attendees)
