The Chicago Doubleheader

The Chicago Doubleheader!
What could be more exciting than enjoying a doubleheader on a beautiful day in May in the Windy City? How about enjoying a five-day doubleheader?!
Five Days of Magic
That is just what McBride’s Magic & Mystery School has in store for you! There are two great learning opportunities for you at the beautiful Rhapsody Theater in Chicago beginning on May 29. You are invited to join us for the first ever SOLO SHOW BOOT CAMP and the second annual FESTIVAL OF MAGIC.

Solo Show Boot Camp

During the three-day intensive SOLO SHOW BOOT CAMP class, you will learn how to make a powerful solo show from three maestros of the stage: Jeff McBride, Dr. Ricardo Rosenkranz, and Dr. Larry Hass. During this first-time ever offering, you will learn how to fuse artistry and showmanship into an unforgettable full-evening show. 

The trio of experts, Jeff, Ricardo, and Larry, will guide you through every step of the journey for creating a solo show that stands out, captivates, and takes your audience on a ride they will always remember. This is your invitation to train with the top magic teachers and directors in the world.

  • Anyone who is working on a solo show, parlor show, or theater show.
  • Magicians who want to pack small and play big.
  • Magicians who want to play Performing Arts Centers and Theaters, or who want to create their own personal performance venue.
