Doug Eakin brings his unique style to the 2015 Oakland Magic Circle Closeup Competition.
Perry won last year’s closeup competition, so he couldn’t compete again this year.
In particular, he focuses on Alfred Hitchcock’s use of of suspense and surprise to please the audience in this encore performance.
May 5th – Open Performance – Schedule for Tuesday, May 5, 2015
6:30pm Doors Open
6:45pm Teach-In (flip stick) — The teach-in this month will feature the flip stick move. This is a move I’ve never done, but would love to learn. Done well, it really looks like magic! Dante has agreed to take the lead on this.
Thanks Dante! I’m bringing a sharpie, a wooden spoon, and a willingness to look silly. If you have a move or effect that you would like to suggest for the teach-in, please let us know!
7:00pm OMC business Meeting
7:30pm Open Performance — Time to get some of our performance on! I am asking each member to prepare something. Even if you don’t consider yourself a performer, you’re in a magic club! There must be some little effect that you have at home that you enjoy. Bring it, perform it, and we will cheer
