“Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it.
Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.”
– Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Greetings friends and magi,
Our dreams are coming true! We are so excited to share the great news! After our many, many years of touring the world, we are actually coming home to Las Vegas for a long run! Well, three months is a long run anywhere for us, in this business. In the next few weeks we will tell you about special theme weekends and exciting guest stars. Read on to see all of the new additions to our class line-up this fall!
MCBRIDE MAGIC AT THE EDGE OPENS AUGUST 21!
A VERY SPECIAL OFFER TO ALL MAGIC AND MYSTERY SCHOOL STUDENTS:
FREE TICKETS TO JEFF MCBRIDE: MAGIC AT THE EDGE!
Yes that’s right! Any student who attends a class with us at the MAGIC AND MYSTERY SCHOOL, from now until Thanksgiving will get 2 free tickets to see the show and attend the after party at Jeff McBride’s WONDERGROUND!
We know a lot of you have been friends for a long time – and we need your help now to spread the word – there are just three months to experience “Magic at the Edge” right here in Las Vegas, in an intimate showroom (just 200 seats – none more than 30 feet from the action). We want to fill every seat – and perhaps if we do, we can extend the run. But for now, please help us out by telling your friends to rush and get their tickets, either on line at http://www.palacestation.com/entertainment/trax/, or by calling them at (702) 547-5300.
SIGN UP TODAY AND JOIN US FOR THE FINAL CLASSES OF 2008!
3 DAY MASTER CLASS: Sept 12, 13, 14
The 3-day Master Class includes personal instruction and videotaped feedback. This is the only event in the world of magic that focuses on you and the performance of your magic. Those who choose not to perform are always amazed at how much they learn from experiencing McBride’s Master Class process and especially from listening to the critiques of others.
MAGIC AND MARTIAL ARTS: Sept.16, 17, 18
“Experience the Mystery of Mastery!” Dedication, discipline, patience and practice, are just a few of the ingredients it takes to hone your craft. Join us for one of the world’s most unusual magic events. Special guests include Tom Meseroll, author of the new book, MAGUS: MASTER OF MARTIAL MAGIC, and FISM winner Aaron Crow. This week’s theme for the class and stage show will feature martial arts magicians from around the world.
FOCUS ON STAGE MAGIC AND MANIPULATION: Sept. 22, 23
A 2 day intensive where a small group will journey deep into the art of stage magic. This is a “hands on” workshop, so bring the magic you want to polish with you!
FOCUS ON STREET MAGIC,: Oct. 8, 9, 10
Both classic “busker style” magic and modern TV magic will be explored during this event. Also a special bonus! FREE admission to THE AGE OF CHIVALRY: the Las Vegas Renaissance Faire! Our friends have a huge castle at the Ren-faire that has a stage. We will take turns on the stage working our magic with the faire attendees!
THE MAGIC AND MEANING CONFERENCE: Oct. 22, 23, 24, 25
Join Eugene Burger, Robert Neale, Dr. Lawrence Hass, George Parker, David Goodsell and many top storyteller magicians for a weekend of wisdom and inspiration.
This event includes the Famous Las Vegas Witches and Wizard’s Ball and BONEDANCE, an all night Fire ritual in the Nevada desert! Go to the website to read all about it!
MAGIC AND MEDICINE: Nov. 6, 7, 8, 9
Magicians, doctors, nurses, therapists, medical professionals and all kinds of folks who love magic will join us in Las Vegas for this 4th annual event. If you are interested in the healing power of magic and its connection to the medical arts, this is an event for you! This event will focus on magic and its use in the workplace, on stage, as part of presentations and just plain fun! All levels are welcome!
MENTALISM MASTER CLASS: Nov 12, 13, 14
Master Mentalist Ross Johnson will join Eugene Burger and top “mystery entertainers” from around the world for this in depth exploration in the realm of mind mystery. Recently, we had the pleasure of coaching many of the students that won Uri Geller’s “Phenomena” TV show. Now you can learn the inside secrets to create your own award winning mind reading and mental miracles!
See you at the show! And thank you all for spreading the word about our new show, our nightclub and our events here in Las Vegas!
Your friend in the art of magic,
A SPECIAL NOTE FROM TOBIAS:
For our friends in Canada – before we open the show at Palace Station, we’ll be in residence at the Capital Magic Festival at the Civic Center Arena in Ottawa on August 15, 16 & 17. Not only will we be performing Magic at the Edge, but Jeff will be offering a one-day “Secret Session” mini-master class. Learn more at http://www.ottawasuperex.com/index_magic.php?page=43
Also, if you’re a fellow magician, variety entertainer or performance artist and you’ll be here in Las Vegas during the run of Magic at the Edge and The Wonderground, and you think you’d like to perform at the Wonderground, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. We have a limited number of spots available, so I can’t guarantee you’ll get on our list of performers – but I CAN guarantee that if you do, you’ll have a great time!
JUST IN: One of our students for the August extended master class (our last of the year) had just had to cancel – opening up one spot in that class. Register and send your deposit today and the slot is yours! Not only do you get to experience the intensive class, with visits to both Mac King’s show and Lance Burton’s (including visits with Mac & Lance after the show) – but for the first time you’ll also get to see Jeff’s own show over at Palace Station, with an exclusive backstage tour, and your own invitation to become a real “Las Vegas Performer” by performing strolling magic for our guests at McBride’s Magic Wonderground. Hurry and sign up now, though, as only the one slot has opened up!
Looking forward to seeing you here in Vegas!
