Toronto: Luiz Castro lecture

From the Browser's Den of Magic:
Saturday, February 22

We are very pleased to present to you a Brand New Lecture by Luiz Castro! As you many of you know Luiz is a construction worker by day and a Master Magician by Night.

Luiz will be sharing with you all types of magic. Whether you are brand new to magic or a seasoned magician you will find something at this lecture. Luiz will be covering almost all areas of magic and all levels of skill. So there really will be something for everyone.

For Luiz magic is a passion, a love. Whether it is a sleight, a prop, or a routine... if Luiz adds the Luiz Touch it is always better.

Luiz is also always willing to help. In fact we cannot list all of the people in the magic community that he has helped. He is a walking, breathing encyclopedia of magic! So this is a good opportunity to meet him at the shop.

For the last several years, Luiz has been the Chief Coin Worker for Mechanic Industries, including working on the development of their brand-new COLLUSION effect. Luiz has also been instrumental in developing and starring in the instructional videos for a variety of Roy Kueppers products.

Toronto: Honouring the life and magic of Romaine

From the Browser's Den of Magic:
On August 11th, LUIZ CASTRO will be giving a FREE magic show here in our shop in honour of Romaine. AND SHOULD HE BE UP TO IT ROMAINE MAY PERFORM AS WELL!

Luiz who does not drive a car, has traveled many times over the years to Kitchener to visit and learn from this master.

In addition, Romaine will be available for a meet and greet, taking photos and signing autographs. We will have cake (who doesn't want cake?) and Romaine will be offering a Q&A segment, so please prepare questions to ask! Whether your question is about the ins and outs of the business (remember he performed regularly for over 4 decades, all over the world) or it's a question about a specific manipulation technique, Romaine will be here to answer any questions you have.

We look forward to seeing you all on the 11th!

Morrissey Magic: 52 years wonderful!

A great time was had by all at Morrissey Magic's 52nd Anniversary Party yesterday!  At the open house we were treated to a close-up show featuring Bill McCourt (Ring 17 past president 73/74), Luiz Castro (doing a side-splitting impersonation of Juan Tamariz), Christyrious and Dan Morrissey! The afternoon stage show, emceed by Glen Ottaway, showcased the talent of Michael Collins, Danny Hammil, Alex Kazam, Bill Abbott and Paul Wildbaum (who conducted a beautiful impromptu bell choir).

The day was filled with laughter, amazement and friendship.  Thank you Dan and Phoebe for hosting this wonderful day!
