"Theatrical Magic - The Lecture" isn't just a trick lecture. Although attendees will leave with solid audience and time tested material that they can immediately perform, the lecture offers so much more. Of special interest will be the focus on Character Development, and script writing. These are things every top pro stresses as important, yet there has been very little practical information available to the average performer. This lecture will change that. Among the tricks taught are solid, close-up and platform pieces that most magicians already own the props to perform - they just need to pull them out and dust them off!
Jiggernaut - A solid script for Mark Jenest's classic cup & ball routine, that makes the routine more adaptable to any performance persona, but more than that it is a lesson in customizing a script to fit your performance persona.
Houdini Escapes! - This script transforms the Scotch and Soda trick from a sucker routine into a theatrical showpiece!
Wonder Pen-Atration - A throw-away quickie becomes a magical showpiece! Strong enough to be done on stage! Lie Detector - A self working card miracle that ANYONE can do, but strong enough to close with!
Pyro Perception - So, what do you do with that weird blister trick? Turn it into a mental magic masterpiece!
Teflon Cards - A novel moving signature routine. A card is signed on the back and then the signature is visually removed and placed on the back of a different card!
The Drag Queen - A humorous fusion of magic and mentalism using a deck of cards. Very visual, yet within the reach or any level magician. The audience's eyes will fall out when you do this one!
The $50 Stand-Up Show - John will perform and discuss his stand-up show. A timetested, audience approved show that can be presented on any stage to audiences of any size - from 20 to 2000! This 30 minute show is John's corporate bread & butter and the principles used to create the show are applicable to every performance style or persona. Best of all it fits in a briefcase, can travel as carryon, and the materials cost less than $50.00!!
After the lecture, John’s book Theatrical Magic is available as well as the e-book How To Produce Your Theater Show, as well as lecture notes.
