Jeff, a collector and student of ritual theater magic, will share magic pieces he has gathered from his world travels. Larry made many séance shows and lectures with Eugene Burger--including his final ones--and will share all the secrets he learned about making this kind of performance theater. Jeff and Larry will be joined by our Master of Mentalism Ross Johnson, who has performed Séance and knew Tony Andruzzi, and by Séance expert Terry Tyson. Terry’s writings on Séance appeared in the entire run of the now legendary Séance magazine, has presented séance and taught séance skills in the US and UK.

This is a rare opportunity to immerse yourself in some of the strangest magic on earth! This is the first, and perhaps only, time this special class will offered.
