Q: What should I wear to the auditions?
A: There is no standard for the type of clothing you should wear. Most common is slacks and a nice shirt for men and the same or a dress for the women.
Q: I don't live in the Southern California area, can I audition?
A: The basic rule of thumb is that if you don't live in the area, then we would rather that you didn't audition. The MCJS is centered around learning and doing so through networking with your peers, other magicians, the sponsors and through special lectures. Our teaching philosophy can't be accomplished if you aren't at the meetings. Therefore, there is a minimum eight (8) meeting per year that must be attended in order to remain a Junior member. In extenuating circumstances, you will be allowed to audition if you can prove that you can make the minimum eight (8) meetings a year, at the Magic Castle.
Q: Do you have an out of state membership?
A: No. Review to the FAQ above. As a general rule we do not accept members from out of the Southern California area unless they can prove that they can make at least 8 out of the 12 meetings per year.
