People love to see a great magician perform, and after a show they often wonder where they can learn how to become a magician. Playland-Not-at-the-Beach Museum of Fun is pleased to announce its very first Magic Workshop to meet that need. Richard Tuck, Playland's Master of Fun explains, "Visitors to our museum have seen some of the greatest magicians in Northern California perform on our stage. Afterwards they frequently ask if we are ever going to teach how to perform magic. By special demand, here is the first class. If it is successful, there my be many more."
On Thursday, July 16th Playland-Not-at-the-Beach presents "Magic with Ordinary Objects" taught by master magician Heather Rogers. "Rather than start with expensive apparatus, we think it is better to teach a new magician how to produce magical effects right at the dinner table or at a desk just by picking up common, ordinary objects. The emphasis then is on the magician not on the fancy equipment," Tuck explains.
Heather Rogers is an award winning magician and motivator who has presented magical programs at over 3,500 public and private events ranging in all sizes and venues, including the Wonder Dome and House of Mirth in Las Vegas. As a trained actor, circus performer and trainer, and solo performing artist, Heather has also written and produced 7 one-woman shows that ran in many theaters in San Francisco including Venue 9’s Women’s Work Theatre Festival, The Shelton Theatre, The Marsh Theatre and many others. She has coached groups and individuals in sleight of hand magic and presented several trainings on “Magic for Marketers.”
The workshop begins at 6:00 PM and goes until 8:00 PM on July 16th. Students will be provided with all the necessary equipment to perform the magical effects. The cost is only $ 20 per student. After the workshop, guests are welcome to enjoy Playland-Not-at-the-Beach's attractions for an extra hour. Playland is located at 10979 San Pablo Avenue in El Cerrito, CA. The Del Norte BART station is just 5 blocks away, and the ACTransit bus stops right across the street.
