David Regal ~ USA
David Regal is a television writer, creator of effects for magicians, and two-time Academy of Magical Arts Lecturer of the Year. Currently, he sits on the Board of Trustees of Hollywood’s Magic Castle. His background is live comedy, as a member of the main company of Chicago City Limits, and since moving to the Los Angeles area he has served as a head writer for Nickelodeon’s Rugrats, and has written for an array of sitcoms. Magic of his design is performed around the world.

Rob Torres ~ USA
For the past two decades Rob Torres has travelled to over 45 countries performing in theatres, circuses, varieties, galas, TV and film. His performances at the Budapest, Moscow and Monte Carlo circus festivals have all won him awards, but more than that, laughter! Rob has masterfully blended his formal training in theatre, circus arts, and pantomime together to create genuinely fun and memorable acts. From the moment he walks on stage or into the ring, Rob steps into the hearts of his audience and keeps them laughing long after he is gone.
International comedian Rob Torres has a great way of finding absurdity in common everyday tasks. If you’re looking for laughter, this is where you’ll find it. See for yourself why Rob Torres is the International Man of Mirth!!!

Levent ~ USA
Levent started out at a very young age performing throughout his native New York City. At the age of 17 he was awarded 1st prize for Stage Magic at the International Brotherhood of Magicians’ National Convention. This led him to have a 2 year engagement at Resorts International Casio Hotel in Atlantic City, where he was twice nominated “Best Act in a Production Show”. In 2005 he had the honour to perform at the Magic Circle Centenary Celebrations in London. In 2006 Levent was invited to perform at the “Society of American Magicians Annual Salute to Magic” at the Tribeca Performing Arts Center in New York. In 2007 he performed at the World Magic Seminar in Nagoya, Japan and in 2008 he travelled twice to South Korea to perform at Busan International Magic Festival and at the FISM ASIA magic convention and television series. In 2009 he was a regular performer on the American television series “Masters of Illusion” on Fox’s MyNETWORK.

Christian Schenk ~ Germany
Christian believes that in 2004 a client’s trade show themed “It’s Magic” brought him back into magic as he printed his first deck of playing cards. What he thought was just a new hobby turned out to be the most serious (and fun) part of his life. He believes that his most exciting experience was being invited to the invitation only FFFF (Fechter's Finger Flicking Frolic) where he was asked to do a lecture about his creations so far.

Markus Beldig ~ Germany
A new name to most. Markus is Germanys leading Mentalist. This is straightforward mentalism without props. Putting Mentalism first. Markus is a TV advisor and has taught magic for 17 years at the Magic School in Munich. He was also the first mentalist to perform a full evening show at the Vienna Concert House.

Robert Temple ~ UK
Robert Temple is one of the world's leading comedy stage hypnotists. Over the past eight years, he has toured his explosively funny hypnosis show to NINE countries around the world, performing over 1500 live shows and hypnotising over 10,000 people… from the Las Vegas Strip to the West End of London.

Ricky McLeod ~ UK
For the past 19 years the popular showman has been adding a touch of magic to thousands of children's and family events. The Scottish Association of Magical Societies have crowned him 'Children's Entertainer of the Year' on four occasions, while he has also twice received the 'Murray Wand for Showmanship'.
Edinburgh based Ricky has also been a finalist in the U.K Children's Entertainer of the Year competition.
Recognised by his fellow artists as being one of the leaders in this field, he has lectured on the art of entertaining children at the world's largest magic convention.
Since then he has travelled all over the country with his lecture entitled "Tricks of my Trade".

PLUS All delegates get free seats for the Midnight Show
ANDY FURY
Despite starting comedy out of “sheer boredom” just two years ago, Andy Fury has impressed a lot of people in a short space of time with a wonderful mix of self-deprecating dark jokes and off the wall surrealism. Despite a laid back stage presence that sometimes borders horizontal, he’s as hard-working as he is funny and winning the Hilarity Bites New Act of the Year 2010 title has rounded off the last 12 months for Andy perfectly, after wowing audiences the length and breadth of the UK.

ROBERT TEMPLE
Robert Temple is one of the world's leading comedy stage hypnotists. Over the past eight years, he has toured his explosively funny hypnosis show to NINE countries around the world, performing over 1500 live shows and hypnotising over 10,000 people… from the Las Vegas Strip to the West End of London.

This is the show where truly anything can happen… and usually does. Only ONE thing is guaranteed…this is an evening that you will NEVER forget. You'll gasp as ordinary volunteers drop deep into a hypnotic trance and lose all inhibitions, with just a click of Robert's fingers.

This dynamic entertainer hurls this age-old art form kicking and screaming into the 21st century with his supersonic hypnotic speed, outrageously funny hypnotic sketches and his loveable quick wit.

This is your TRANCE to become the STAR of his hypnotic world and take this roller coaster ride to the very centre of your imagination! Will YOU give him a piece of your mind?

Many of you will have made other arrangements by now for the South Tyneside International Magic weekend but there is still a way you can get involved.
There are 3 Gala Shows and the Customs House are doing a special ticket for the 3.
See http://www.customshouse.co.uk/theatre-details.aspx?id=725

There are also Master Classes on the Sunday afternoon and Thursday night - details below.
You don't have to be registered for the convention to attend these.

Master Class Info 2012
The South Tyneside International Magic Convention will again be happening from 9th – 11th March 2012. We have another great line-up of performers from the USA and UK, some of which in addition to their lecture at the convention will be holding a Master Class.
Master Classes are ideal because sometimes the lecturers would like to spend more time on a particular effect. They are also a way of getting to see and learn from a performer in an intimate setting, and perhaps getting one-on-one instruction on a routine that has been developed and perfected over years, saving you months of trial and experimentation.
We have been running Master Classes for the last seven years and would like to invite you to attend one in 2012

Each Master Class is limited to 15 people

David Regal
"Getting the Most Out of the Magic"
David Regal is a television writer, creator of effects for magicians, and two-time Academy of Magical Arts Lecturer of the Year. Currently, he sits on the Board of Trustees of Hollywood’s Magic Castle. His background is live comedy, as a member of the main company of Chicago City Limits, and since moving to the Los Angeles area he has served as a head writer for Nickelodeon’s Rugrats, and has written for an array of sitcoms. Magic of his design is performed around the world.
Everyone has effects in their repertoire that are personal favourites...but for some reason don’t seem to deliver the impact of other effects. In this workshop, attendees are encouraged to discuss and/or perform tricks that they feel should deliver more magical punch, and David will lead the group in exploring ways to improve them. David will also discuss effects of his own that are not part of his lecture.
Sun 11th March 2pm 2 hours £60


Levent
Levent is a highly regarded professional Comedy Magician and Manipulator with over 35 years of experience, and the author of the critically acclaimed magic book “Roy Benson by Starlight”. In his Masterclass Levent will teach how to find, research and adapt classic stage and stand-up magic tricks and maximize their entertainment value. As part of this lecture he will also explain and teach his “Fundamental Rules of Stage Magic” and show how they can be applied to any magic trick. By completely following these simple rules, you will be able to take your magic to the next level.
Additionally each participant will receive a set of notes and a free instructional DVD on the Charlie Miller Rope Trick and Levent’s original routine for the Three Rope Trick.

Rob Torres
Performance, Creativity and Character
Take a 4 hour adventure into the world of stage craft and performance with the International Man of Mirth, Rob Torres. Learn how to blend your voice and body, as well as using blocking and staging to create powerful performances. This master class will dive into techniques for creating original routines and structure of a performance on a technical level, to give you a deeper understanding of the little things that make a BIG difference in a show. You’ll have the chance to present, work on and refine a routine of your own. Students are required to bring a short prepared routine to present as if it were a show. Loose fitting clothes are required because there will be a section on movement and working with your body as well as your dialogue. Last but not least you will learn steps to unearthing a character that is unique to you, and the ways to genuinely connect with your audience as you work.
