Master Class for Mentalism, 2022 - LIVE IN LAS VEGAS

$795.00 ($395.00 minimum deposit)

In response to many requests and because of extraordinary demand, we are delighted to present this Master Class aimed exclusively at mentalists. Jeff McBride's Master Class is the premier program in contemporary magic where YOU and your performance take center stage in a safe and supportive setting.

At this Special Master Class, all of the performances, talks, and breakout sessions are focused on the performing art of MENTALISM. Regular faculty members Jeff McBride and Dr. Larry Hass will share their thoughts on Mentalism and Mystery Entertainment. And our Special Guest for the Class will once again be ROSS JOHNSON, perhaps the most successful corporate mentalist in the United States. This is a RARE opportunity to learn from Ross, because he does not publish his material and rarely speaks to groups of mentalists. We are thrilled to be able to spend several days with him finding out what has made him so successful.

In addition to the Personal Performance Feedback sessions--when you get expert direction on improving your performances--the Master Class for Mentalism features small-group learning and trick teaching, as well as KEYNOTE LECTURES on the art of mentalism by Ross, Larry, and Jeff.  These are high-level, cutting edge lectures on the topics, techniques, and/or leading figures in our field, prepared especially for this course.

This is an exciting opportunity, and it will sell out quickly. We hope that you will join us this November 10-13, 2022!

The Master Class for Mentalism is limited to a small group of participants. Although there is no pressure to perform, many students choose to present their act (or a mentalism piece they are working on) for expert direction from Jeff, Larry, and Ross, who are all committed to helping you attain new levels of excellence with your performance of mentalism.

If you are looking for detailed, personal instruction in an intimate and safe setting, consider attending a McBride Master Class, magic's most progressive learning experience.

The Master Class includes personal instruction and a videotaped feedback session. This is the only event in the world of magic that focuses on YOU and the performance of your mentalism. Those who choose not to perform are always amazed at how much they learn from experiencing McBride's Master Class process and especially from listening to the critiques of others.


The House of Mystery COVID-19 Policy

Health & Safety issues are our top priority as we open the House of Mystery for our two in-person events this fall: Weekend of Wonder: Philosophers of Magic (October 22-24, 2021) and The Master Class for Mentalism (November 11-14, 2021).

Given the rise of COVID-19 cases in several regions due to the delta variant, along with the full FDA approval of Pfizer-BioNtech COVID-19 vaccine, we are hereby tightening our COVID-19 policy for these two events. 

1. Every participant, including the faculty and staff, must be fully vaccinated on the first day of the class. (“Full vaccination” means having completed the last dose of one’s selected vaccine two weeks prior to the event.) Proof of vaccination must be made by presenting either your “COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card” or a photograph of it. No exceptions will be made

2. Each day of the event, participants will undergo Symptom Screening before being admitted to the House of Mystery. Should a participant have symptoms, such as fever, coughing, runny nose, or sore throat (among others), they will not be allowed to attend the remainder of the event and will be refunded a percentage of their tuition for the day or days missed.

3. Along with these measures, we plan to use outdoor space as much as possible (Las Vegas is lovely in autumn!), and we will strongly encourage people to wear masks indoors when they are not performing or speaking.

Thank you for understanding these important steps as we plan to get back together while staying sensible and safe.
