Magic For Magicians (and Clowns)

This presentation is a lecture for working magicians and clowns that teaches specific effects, techniques,  and routines. Ideal for magic and clown conventions, clown ministries and clubs, magic clubs and hobbyist groups, our magicians perform their signature magic routines and effects and then demonstrate the "inner-workings" of each trick. Props and effects are also made available for purchase after the lecture.


Wizard's Workshop
An interactive workshop for teaching basic magic principles and magic history. Students will learn to construct their own magic props, which they get to keep, as well as performance techniques, routines and styles of magic.

Performing magic can be highly effective in developing hand-eye coordination, as well as reducing shyness, building self-esteem, improving dexterity and improving interaction skills.

This workshop can be presented as a single-day class, or as an extended residency.
