Where: On Zoom (link provided to ticket holders)

Admission: Free for Members / $20 for Guests

That Hat & Rabbit Club in Toronto presents an informal get together with Mike Caveney and Tina Lenert.

Tina has just released a new book “Finding the Spotlight”, part of Vanishing Inc’s Astonishing Essay series.

Mike is going to be sharing some of the mysteries of “Egyptian Hall Museum” and its relationship to a special magic happening in Toronto.

Tina Lenert’s life in magic began with a chance visit to the Magic Castle. She was already a professional mime, and the Castle inspired her to find ways to combine the arts of mime and magic. She has been doing that ever since, creating various acts that have earned her numerous awards, including Magic Castle Stage Magician of the Year. Her performances have taken her around the world several times including performances at the London Palladium, Princess Grace Theatre in Monte Carlo, the Wintergarten in Berlin.

Mike’s talents have taken him from Japan to Russia, from Monte Carlo to Borneo, Australia, China, throughout Europe, South America and most of the 50 States. On television, Mike was dubbed one of the NEW VAUDEVILLIANS and the Hollywood Reporter described him as “…one of the funniest magicians in America.”

He is a member of the Inner Magic Circle of London, England and a life member of Hollywood’s Magic Castle where he has twice been voted Stage Magician of the Year.

Mike has performed on the legendary Orient Express, at the London Palladium, at the Sydney Arts Festival and was featured on NBC’s World’s Greatest Magic television special, the Late Late Show with James Corden, and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

Mike has written more than a dozen books on the practice, theory, and history of magic including Magicomedy, The Great Leon. Harry Anderson–Wise Guy, and Carter the Great, which was awarded the John Nevil Maskelyne award for literature by London’s Magic Circle plus additional awards from The Milbourne Christopher Foundation and the Society of American Magicians Hall of Fame. In 1999, Mike was awarded the Literary Fellowship by Hollywood’s Magic Castle. He co-wrote Servais Le Roy – Monarch of Mystery and Kellar’s Wonders. In 2009 Germany’s Taschen Books published MAGIC – 1400s to the 1950s. This massive tome, co-written with Jim Steinmeyer, has been translated into six languages. Mike has published three volumes of his on-going column Classic Correspondence from Egyptian Hall Museum. His life and all of his original magic appears in Mike Caveney Wonders and The Conference Illusions, a two-volume set that earned him the ‘Sharing Secrets’ award from the Allan Slaight Foundation in Toronto

A (virtual) Invitation to The Magic Castle

The Academy of Magical Arts in Hollywood is hosting its annual awards show online this year.

This year, for the first time, it will be a virtual show. Everyone is invited. You don’t have to be an AMA member to attend, and it’s absolutely FREE.

(Remember 7PM in Hollywood is 10PM in Toronto)

Max Maven Lecture: September 10

Max Maven Lecture

When: 7:00 PM, Thursday, September 10, 2020

Where: On Zoom (link provided to ticket holders)

Admission: Free for Members / $20 for Guests

Spend the evening with one of the most inventive and original minds magic has ever known. With a career spanning decades, Max has created and published more original magic and mentalism than just about anyone you can name. He has appeared on countless TV shows in multiple countries (and languages!). He was featured in his own Canadian series The Maximum Dimension created for TVO and had guest appearances on The Fresh Prince of Belair and Mork and Mindy! He has received a creative fellowship from the Academy of Magical Arts and the Allan Slaight Lifetime Achievement Award.

Now as we get accustomed to social distanced life, Max has crafted a new lecture for the virtual stage. The lecture will emphasize mentalism along with principles that can be applied to all varieties of magic and material that will fool you first and delight your audiences later. The lecture includes material for live performances and interactive online ones as well including a trick where everyone can participate from home with their own deck of cards, taught by a master creator and performer.

We hope you will join us for this very special lecture. This will be a live lecture on Zoom, not a streamed video so participants will be able to ask questions in real time. Tickets will be available only to members first (August 17-22) and then open to guests until we have reached the limit of our chat room size.
