The Magic and Meaning Conference has been our community’s time to gather together, re-connect, and re-charge our love of magic that matters. And yet, throughout the pandemic, the Magic & Mystery School has built upon its long experience with the Zoom platform to design and deliver online programs, courses, and seminars that have achieved very high quality. We have been busy applying some of what we've learned to come up with creative solutions to make sure this year's event will be an appropriate and exciting celebration of our 30th year!

Master Class for Mentalism - Online$350.00 ($200.00 minimum deposit)Register
DUE TO THE ONGOING COVID-19 PANDEMIC, WE'VE MOVED THIS YEAR'S MASTER CLASS FOR MENTALISM ONLINE, REDUCED IT'S PRICE, AND MADE SEVERAL NECESSARY ADJUSTMENTS TO THE SCHEDULE. STUDENTS REGISTERED FOR THE LIVE VERSION OF THIS CLASS, LONG SOLD OUT, HAVE BEEN CONTACTED AND GIVEN THEIR OPTIONS FOR THIS NEW CLASS.
To be specific: on Thursday we will meet for a party, special Zoom show, and discussion from 3:00-5:00pm PACIFIC, and on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, we will meet from 10:00-3:00pm PACIFIC.
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 write books 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.
This is an exciting opportunity, and it will sell out quickly. We hope that you will join us this November 12-15, 2020, on ZOOM!Learn more about Master Class for Mentalism - Online

His experience as a director and acting teacher, combined with his deep knowledge of magic gained from 30 years working with Jeff McBride, Marco Tempest, and others, is now available via this class to you. Pariticipants will receive a .pdf version of Beyond Deception as part of your class materials. Jeff McBride has long been among the most exciting of magical artists, with a strong background in mask, mime and other performance disciplines.
