SEATTLE, Wash. — Families are invited to “Magic Tricks and Secrets Live,” a combination magic workshop, DVD release party, and a chance for kids to star in their own magic video on Tuesday, August 11 at 7 p.m. at the King County Library System Service Center (960 Newport Way NW, Issaquah). Admission is free; “Living Room Magic” DVDs are available for purchase. Kids learn magic with rubber bands, paperclips, playing cards, and more. All props and hands-on instruction are provided. Explore free online videos and the DVD trailer at www.magictricksandsecrets.com.
Kids have the opportunity to perform a trick on video which is edited and posted to YouTube (requires a parent/guardian release). You receive the link to share with friends or upload to MySpace or Facebook. Kids must be accompanied by an adult. Recommended for ages 6+. This program is sponsored by the King County Library System.
To reserve your free space send e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or call toll-free (877) 412-5064.
The Magic Tricks and Secrets DVD series is created by Jeff Evans and George Ford. “Living Room Magic volumes 1 and 2” include magic with everyday items you already have around the home; string, playing cards, paper, and more. Some effects are impromptu and can be done anytime, anywhere: others require some practice, but are well within the ability of anyone willing to put in a little bit of practice.
A full time entertainer since 1998, Jeff Evans lives in Olympia and travels throughout the Pacific Northwest performing over 250 shows a year.
