Greetings,

Is anyone out there interested in getting together and talking theatrical seances?

I am in the process of organizing a small group of people that are serious about creating/performing theatrical seances.

We will gather in the Seance Parlor of my Haunted Chamber in Pittsburgh, and we will "session" on topics related to theatrical seance work, such as scripting, routines, marketing, etc...

My schedule is very hectic for the rest of 2003, so we will probably not schedule the exact dates for our first gathering until 2004.

There will be no charge for any of this, because our goal is to have fun, share our ideas, and learn. So in regard to costs, every person will simply have to pay their own way when it comes to travel, hotel, meals, etc...

Space will be very limited, and so anyone that is interested will have to apply. Acceptance will be based upon the date of application, experience, what you bring to the group, and (most importantly) passion.

Lastly, it must be restated that this group will be dedicated to the creation/performance of theatrical seances. We are not interested in psi parties, private readings, etc… If that is what you do, I am not passing judgement, it simply does not fit the goal of this specific group. We are only interested in creating excellent theater.

Let me know if you are possibly interested. I can reached here:

Keep the change,

Sounds good to me. In fact, I will be in Chicago on July 29th (I am lecturing at Magic Inc), maybe we can get together.

Keep the change,
Rick

Hi Rick,

Sent you an e-mail in response to the Seance group. I hadn't heard back, so maybe I accidentally deleted your reply with the spam. I'd be interested in learning more, so please PM me if you get a moment.

Thanks!

Rick,

Jack and I seem to be in the same boat. What is the current status of the event?

Apparently no one -- myself included -- has heard anything further on this.

Rick, sorry I'll miss you, but I'm working two gigs that day. Blast it!

Break a leg!

I would like to be a part but it's a little far for me to travel.

Of course if you'd like to hold it at my hotel in the Caribbean....

Still no word on this one? Maybe the idea's been put on hold. If anyone who can't make it to the meeting in PA would like to talk seances, please e-mail or PM me and perhaps we can start a formal discussion here in cyberspace.

I'm willing to bet Rick's silence is due to the fact that he is lecturing on the road. I believe he is in Chicago tonight, in fact (7/29/03).

Take care,

Greetings,

Yes, Craig and George are correct as to the reason for my silence. I have been out of town lecturing, thus away from my computer. In addition, after months of problems with email, we are officially changing from our old address to
magic@deceptionsunlimited.com

As for the Society, the initial phases are underway. As my schedule clears, I will pass along the specific plans to those that are interested.

But speaking of seances, I have just agreed to give a special lecture on seance work at the HorrorFind convention in Baltimore on Saturday night, August 16th.

The lecture will be a special late night event, starting at 11:00pm and running for about two hours.

I will not be teaching any routines (due to the fact this is not a gathering of magicians), but I will be talking about the numerous seances that I have created/produced, and also many points on how to put together your own performances.

For those that might be interested, check out the HorrorFind website for details about the convention:
http://www.horrorfindweekend.com/index.html

I hope to see some of you there, or possibly at the remaining dates of my lecture tour.


Keep the change,
Rick
