PARLOUR MAGIC
Tuesday November 12th
7 PM


For a change of pace our next meeting will be all about Parlour Magic, that is magic that can be done in a parlour setting, usually standing up. A parlour is a traditional reception room that was popular in the 18th, 19th and early 20th centuries, where those of a certain social status would perform for their guests. In magic parlance, parlour magic is performed for an audience that's larger than an intimate close-up show but not as formal as a large stage show.
In the 1850's, Johann Hofzinger who performed for French royalty, popularized this genre of magic. Steve Cohen, the Millionaires Magician, continues the tradition by performing his show "Chamber Magic" in New York to sold out audiences for many years.
Bring your props that can be seen by those in the rear of the room and get ready to stun the audience with your tricks and illusions. Audience participation is always encouraged, as is please bring a friend to experience our magic.
