This is pre-owned. Interior clean; no marks or written notes; some of the lower right hand corners have a light corner crease; covers are lightly soiled in some areas but nothing too severe. A great reading copy.

A practical workbook for the serious performer.

One of the main reasons magicians neglect the “acting” part of magic is because magic is such a demanding discipline to learn. A performing magician wears many hats. The magician has to learn sleights, misdirection and technical prowess of the hands. The magician is the choreographer, writer, sound person, booker and promoter of his show. Learning how to develop a character often takes a back seat because “there’s no time to do everything!” But taking the time to learn how to develop a real character, or stage persona, is the most important thing you can do. It is the thing people remember and it’s the thing that will keep getting you booked!

It covers the following subjects:

Playing The Part
Thinking Like Your Character
Dress And Look Like Your Character
The Base Character
Talking Like Your Character
The Theatrical Purpose
