Hi, folks! Tobias here. Summer finally seems to be arriving here in Las Vegas, and we have lots of exciting things coming up.
Jeff has just returned from a week in Cornwall, where the class and show he and Eugene did were so successful we’re already making plans to go back next year. He’ll tell you more about it in another Museletter next week. For now, enjoy the photographs of Jeff & Eugene at Stonehenge!
Following the adventures in Cornwall, Jeff and Eugene traveled on to their annual visit in Amsterdam, where they performed several shows with George Parker – one a full day event for the police department – and then conducted this year’s Amsterdam class. Again…we’re already planning for next year. In addition, we’re beginning to look for ways to bring the Jeff, Eugene & George Parker full day “magic & creativity” event to the U.S. More on that soon.
Following Amsterdam, Eugene headed home, and Jeff was off to Egypt for a week long magic cruise from Alexandria to Rome. Home for just one day after the tour, Jeff headed off for his yearly stint directing former master class student Nick Norton in his summer extravaganza at the Silverwood Theme Park in Idaho.
Now we’re preparing for a “McBride Weekend” sponsored by the Jeff McBride Ring of the I.B.M. in Temecula, California. The weekend kicks off (Saturday, May 6) with a show and lecture at the Old Town Temecula Community Theatre. The show will be the full evening “Magic UnMasked” starring Jeff and featuring Abbi Spinner McBride, and will be followed by a “for magicians only” lecture in the theatre. We understand seats are nearly sold out for the show, so if you’re in Southern California and want to come out for one of the most exciting magic shows on the planet.
On Sunday following the show (May 7) Jeff will conduct a special “Secret Session” intensive workshop – a kind of “Mini-Master Class” for a select group of local magicians. The “Secret Sessions” include much of what we do at the master classes – hands on work on acts performed by several attendees, special exercises in creativity, lectures, and lots of one-on-one work with Jeff, tailored specifically to the requests of the students. If you’ve always thought you might like to attend a master class, but weren’t quite prepared to shell out the full tuition or the costs of a weekend in Las Vegas, this is a great way to try one out for a small fraction of the investment. Our reports are that there are still slots available for this class, so if you’re interested, please click here and sign up for the class.
Which reminds me: We have only one slot still available for our July extended session Master Class, but we still have several available for August. We tried the extended session format last July for the first time, and it’s proved to be a most successful addition to our line-up. With visits to see Lance Burton and Mac King’s shows, then spend time with Lance and Mac for questions and answers has been a great addition to the student’s hands on sessions back and Jeff’s “House of Mystery.” If you’re interested in learning more, just click here: http://www.magicalwisdom.com/school.php
