Immersive Magic Theater
A 3-Day Journey Beyond Imagination!
Did you know that the origins of IMMERSIVE THEATER began as magic shows? Today there are many forms of “immersive experiences” - night clubs, theatrical productions, virtual reality, escape rooms, seances, haunted houses, dome shows, art and music festivals, and yes - MAGIC SHOWS!
IMMERSIVE - MAGIC - THEATER
Magic is a form of theater that rarely ever has a fourth wall. The connection between performer and audience is essential to the impact of the magic. A great theatrical experience is DYNAMIC; the audience is MOVED...literally! The faculty of McBride’s Mystery school will host top speakers and creators from around the world who are creating new and immersive magical experiences. This is a 3-day journey beyond imagination!
NOTE: ALL CLASSES ARE RECORDED - YOU CAN WATCH THEM AT ANY TIME!
