An Online Magic Show?


If during this COVID-19 isolation, you were working with a magician to design a birthday magic show to perform online for a group of seven-year olds, what one trick from your current repertoire would you be sure to include???

Bring it to the online meeting to show us the trick you selected and tell us about why you selected it.

There will also be a surprise guest of honor (to be announced later).

We'll be meeting in our club's Virtual Magic Meeting Room from 7-8:30 PM.

Click HERE at the meeting time for entrance on your computer, smart phone or tablet (as long as it has wi-fi, a microphone and camera).

Plus . . . watch and learn as experienced OMS member Denny Rourke performs and then teaches one of his audience-tested proven magic routines.

Annual Garage Sale


If ever there was an event that epitomizes the phrase "one man's junk is another man's treasure," this is it. Just because you couldn't figure out how to use the prop doesn't mean that another member might not turn it into a feature routine.
