Message: Posted by: Todd Robbins (Sep 11, 2009 09:31AM)
My recent inquiry as to where someone could go to see a theatrical seance or bizarre magic show for the public in So. Cal and the lack of response started me wondering. Where IS all of this being performed? Consider this the start of a thread to give notice of either one time or ongoing bizarre magic shows. It can be anywhere, not just in California or the US.

So, where can we see you all do your stuff?

I'll start it off, but it is for the future. It looks like I will be doing another show off-Broadway here in NYC, but it won't be opening until the fall of 2010. It will be something that the people in this forum will like.

Hi Todd,

I shall be performing my William Warlock, 'Terrifying Tales' on 30th. 31st. October at the Blackpool Grand Theatre (Lawrence House Studio) at the conclusion of a week long 'Spookfest'. And on the following night (1st Nov.) at The Running Pump' Hotel in Catforth (Nr. Preston, Lancs).

All in the u.k. of course but it would be great to see some of the guys on this forum.

Check out: http://www.supernaturalevents.co.uk/terror_tales.html

For details.

Happy Haunting!

BTW: Catforth was the home of Meg Shelton, the Fylde Witch. She is buried under a boulder stone in a perpendicular position, upside down in a nearby churchyard!

I'll tell you the story sometime!

Since the opportunity is here, I'll take it!

We are preparing for the 17th season (my 12th) of Castle Blood's Halloween Adventure Tours(tm). We are open every weekend evening in October as well as the last two Sunday afternoons for family "no scare" matinee tours.

Guests spend approximately 1/2 hour with Castle Denizens, including a guide, who help or prevent them from accomplishing their task for the evening: collecting three talismans to help them win the reward of becoming Honorary Vampyres.

I've been hard at work scripting and/or design of original effects that help with the progression of the storyline. This year, three primary effects involve Spirit Communication, participation in a Vampyre Ritual, and the reconstitution of Vampyre Blood into a more useful (and solid) form. These effects are taught to several Denizens (Cast Members) who will perform them in specific set locations 30-50 times each night. When I have the time (difficult to pull off these days because I'm also heavily involved on the management level) I also perform strolling magic for mortals in the queue and Courtyard areas.

And...good, bad, or fish...I can be seen most Saturday nights on RTV as a part of the cast of Castle Blood's Midnight Monster Hop. We are televised in over 100 media markets in the US every weekend, most likely including yours. The show itself is as campy as most other "horror host shows," but it has been fun both designing and performing the magic for these episodes. (I'm not in every episode and I don't perform magic in every episode, but there is a better than fair chance that you will see Professor Scrye at some point during most of the shows.) Other magicians featured on currently available episodes include Ron Fitzgerald and Dan Roebuck as well as our own cast performing various effects.

Message: Posted by: David Parr (Sep 22, 2009 07:04PM)
This October, I'll be bringing my Halloween show to the Dawes House museum in Evanston, Illinois, just north of Chicago. Here's the official info:

[b]Haunting History brings the Spirits Of Halloween to the Dawes House![/b]

What do you get when you combine a gorgeous turn-of-the-century mansion with the impish imagination of magician David Parr? You get [i]Haunting History[/i], a unique interactive Halloween experience, equal parts history and mystery!

Explore the corridors of the Charles Gates Dawes House, completed in 1895, and enter a shadowland where fact and folklore intermingle in surprising ways. Each room offers an encounter with the strange and supernatural: objects move of their own accord; cryptic messages are conveyed by invisible hands; hidden thoughts are revealed. What bewitching mystery waits around the next corner? There's only one way to find out: follow David Parr.

You'll find that Mr. Parr is uniquely qualified to host an evening in celebration of the mysterious. In addition to his skills as an actor and magician, he brings to the role a dash of gallows humor, a penchant for the macabre, and an uncanny eye for the odd aspects of the past. Urban legends, poltergeists, and psychic powers are his Halloween treats, and he'll share them with you!

"Halloween is my favorite holiday," says Parr. "But it seems like most Halloween activities are aimed at children or teenagers. There are plenty of grownups who enjoy dressing up in costumes and listening to ghost stories as much as I do. Why let the kids have all the fun? It's our turn."

Which is Mr. Parr's way of saying that no one under age seventeen will be admitted to [i]Haunting History[/i]. It's Halloween for grownups!

[i]Haunting History[/i] takes place at the Evanston History Center at The Charles Gates Dawes House: 225 Greenwood Street, Evanston, Illinois. Admission: $20 (EHC Members Night, October 27, Admission for EHC Members: $15) Tickets are limited, so call right away to reserve yours! For tickets and information, please call the Evanston History Center: (847) 475-3410. No one under age seventeen admitted.

Thursday, October 22, 7 pm, 8 pm
Friday, October 23, 7 pm, 8 pm, 9 pm
Saturday, October 24, 7 pm, 8 pm, 9 pm
Tuesday, October 27 (EHC members discount night), 7 pm, 8 pm

I will be a guest performer at Jeff McBride's Magic and Meaning Conference in late October. He has booked me specifically for the evening of the 22nd, but I'll be around for a lot of it, and I'll also perform "here and there" during the event.

Also, I will tentatively perform with Jerome Finley and Johnny X at Salt Lake City's Spooky Soiree.

The website is not yet updated from last year as we have just barely stated our intent to perform, but it should be updated within a week or so. Check it then.

Our season starts tonight. "Night of the Vampyre" gives mortals a glimpse into Castle Blood's vampyre lore.

Highlights for this year include a lighter spirit Q&A with a Wenger Spirit Bell and two original effects. One is a Vampyre Ritual in which a Cameo transforms twice. I had custom cameos made to feature the classic lady's image, a skeletal version, and a red skeletal version. Finally, our Experimentorium will be reconstituting Vampyre Blood into relics and artefacts destroyed in the process of "killing" a Vampyre.

The actors I have working these scenes are very talented and do a good job with both the script and the effect. In addition, Ron Fitzgerald and Bill Baldwin will be with us this weekend. Ron's name is known here. Bill is a Buffalo, NY area performer who has worked for Paul Osborne and is a Ringling Clown College Graduate.
Unfortunately, I only have both of these gentlemen for the weekend as they have busy October schedules.

For the last 5 years, I've been a part of Theatre of the Night (Consisting of myself, The Gothic Magic of Vlad, David Birtwell, and Shawn Phoenix) and every October, we've done our show in Salem, MA for most of, if not the entire month.

This year, Theatre of the Night performed Smoke & Mirrors, a 40 minute show we ran every hour, every day in October. We had a very nice 40 seat theatre thanks to Life & Death in Salem, a store that sells very cool and macabre items.

My wife, Katherine, and I, will be once again performing our theatrical seance at The Dudley House in Ventura, CA. Link: http://www.dudleyhouse.org/
We've been doing this around October for the past several years and have even made a fan out of Leo Kostka, the House Medium of the Magic Castle, who attends our shows regularly.
Plans for the future include other venues, as well as other types of shows. In fact, any bizarre performers in the SoCal area who are interested in getting involved in a future project (think of a Castle-type evening with every room containing a bizarre performer), please send me a PM.
My wife adapted one of our seances to become a Twilight Seance geared for Sweet Sixteen parties and it has proved the most lucrative and the most fun. Those girls can scream! :) Of, course, we have to pay our young sullen vampire. And now we may need a werewolf....

I have just watched the entire most recent performance. it was magical indeed.
Christian continues to impress. Very touching, his variation on the three objects effect. This time centering on items of his fathers. knife medal and dog tags, very powerful. Christian has a way of sharing both his joys and pain that take us to all the places he wishes us to be transported.

Simply wonderful! If I look again at my own medal, I will likely think of this routine. Thank you Christian Cagigal.

I currently perform only a few times a year due to a day job that pays the magic bills. However I do have 2 recurring gigs a year at separate venues. One is at a local community theatre in Lebanon, Ohio where I perform [url=http://ltcplays.com/downloadable_docts/Lebanon%20Theatre%20Hauntings%20-%202010%20-%2029%20&%2030.pdf]"Lebanon Theatre Hauntings"[/url] on Halloween weekend for 2 nights, with two magic colleagues . The show is about 1.5 hours plus intermission. The first performer does comedy magic with a halloween theme / ghost / paranormal theme to each effect. The second performer presents geek magic (needle(s) thru arm, etc.). Following intermission, things take a dark turn as I take the sitters on a psychological journey to the [name witheld to minimize Google hits] mental institution, presenting a theatrical recreation of paranormal phenomena along the way (imagine a show built around Outlaw's Luna Key Box and Luna 1934-36).

I also perform at the local high school's annual After Prom event. I'm just one of many, many entertainment options at this event that goes from 12am to 4am. However, I get the blackbox theatre (an excellent venue for my spooky magic) -- the hypnotist gets the huge auditorium.

Greetings All,

I had the privilage of seeing Aiden's show at the Clock Tower last night and was thoroughly impressed! Aiden's delivery and timing is wonderful, and his story telling is well thought out and really draws the crowd into the world unfolding on the stage. The presentation walks a fine line between creep show and entertainment that totally works, and his passion for what he is presenting really shows. It was also great to see the Outlaw repertoire in action! I highly recommend this show to anyone who wants to see a polished 'bizzarist' in action.

Enjoy the day!

I got to check out the Lovecraft Bar in Portland this week and it is very cool! They said they never had a magician but they do book shows there and it would be a great place to perform spooky magic!

I am pleased to announce that after a long process, Castle Blood will be opening its doors in our new hometown: Monessen, PA.

Our present address is 11 Eastgate Avenue Monessen, PA 15062.

In addition to our season, which opens on September 29 and runs through Halloween, Castle Blood will also be offering special off-season tours, parlor magic/mentalism shows, theatrical seances, and be available for scheduled private events, beginning this year with private bookings on our "off nights" in October and a special December show.

I am also hoping that within the next 6-12 months, we will be sponsoring magician-specific events in our new hometown ;)

The San Francisco Magic Parlor has re-opened at last.
There are tales of wonder and shadow... with odd conjuring.
The initial run is October/November/December
but the plan is to be an ongoing venue.
Details?

Last weekend I was fortunate enough to be able to make it to Eureka Spring, Arkansas. There I saw the Intrigue Theater show. What an excellent show! Sean-Paul and Juliane put on an excellent magic and mentalism show. The venue is an old rock church building, which lends to the total experience. I highly recommend it to anyone that is in the vicinity. It is well worth the small price and the ride to get there. Although I hesitate to think that anyone else will drive thirteen hours, like I did. The show was very well produced and expertly performed. Their web site is http://intriguetheater.com/

My wife and I had the pleasure of attending Aiden Sinclair’s show last night at The Browncoat Theater in Willmington NC. Aiden started his show with his typical flair that received a great laugh. He brought the entire audience (two sold out shows, standing room only!) on a journey from Whitechapel London, a certain insane asylum we all know well to the voyage on the Titanic and beyond. The entire show took everyone on a well thought out journey.

The effects were executed perfectly of course, but the stand out by far is Aiden’s dialog and connecting with the audience. His show is a tight well thought out excellent piece of theater. There were jumps, and gasps as he performed an excellent PK Touch routine, as well as visible jitters when his talking board welcomed the spirits to the Browncoat. When the hour show wrapped up Aiden personally thanked each person for attending.
A true touch of class.

You can tell that Aiden is a seasoned performer with excellent skills that will surely take him very far. He travels all over the county performing shows, so check out his website – http://www.aidensinclair.net to see if he will be in your area.

250th Performance! 2 Years Come October
Welcome to the San Francisco Magic Parlor!

“Magical Tales of San Francisco!” Embark on a theatrical journey where fascinating tales of Wonder and Shadow unfold. We’ll introduce you to San Francisco’s most revered and feared eccentrics, offering captivating San Francisco tales entwined with astonishing magic.

Our performance style seamlessly blends classic storytelling with classical conjuring, the evening’s vignettes are highlighted with magical moments employing unusual curios and rare artifacts.

Time seems to stand still in our little Parlor situated within the historic Chancellor Hotel Union Square. Our whimsical turn-of-the-century theatre evokes old San Francisco. We’ve reimagined the ambiance of La Belle Époque that brief moment in history when wealthy Europeans dined at Maxim’s and frolicked at Moulin Rouge.

...A cozy and charming place where history and imagination meet: Anthony serves up saucy vignettes about some of The City’s most infamous historical figures...
-San Francisco Examiner-

Now in the 12th month of our open-ended run we’ve become a fixture in the city’s Union Square theatre and entertainment center.

Your Host, Walt Anthony, Conjurer & Teller-of-Tales, is a dynamic performer with more than thirty years of practical experience and formal training in acting, magic and entertainment. Walt has wit, exuberance, and an elegant style, making his performances unique and mesmerizing.

…shimmering fairy tales are Anthony’s métier… conjuring up a façade of bygone elegance…
-San Francisco Chronicle-

Guests Agree!
“A real San Francisco treat, better than Rice-a-Roni!” -
“Our first night in San Francisco wisely spent.” -
“A must do for any native San Francisco.” -

You may enjoy pre-show dinners and drinks from 5 pm to 7 pm in the lobby lounge before our 8:00 pm curtain time. Reservations are encouraged due to the intimate size of the Parlor.

That's my typical venue,....after dinner and mucho wine...but since my move to Idaho from AZ two years ago that "audience" of friends/"victims" and relatives has dwindled to a rare occasion!
My local IBM Ring here of about a half dozen magi is my only other chance, except mostly they are into cards, coins. rope and rings, etc...not the best venue for mysterious storytelling where the "artifacts" are the "star" and have "haunted attributes" versus the magi of powers and the sleightful wonder worker!
