School for Scoundrels – August 24 & 25

August 24 & 25 – 11am to 4pm in the Peller Theatre

This class fills up VERY fast, so sign up while you can! Only 15 seats will be available.

The class will be taught by Chef Anton. It will cover the three most important street scams: Three-Card Monte, The Shell Game and Fast & Loose. We will dive into the history, psychology, moves, strategies and ruses of these three games, as well as their application to magic.

Classes will be held in the Peller Theatre at the Magic Castle. The schedule each day will be:
11am to 1pm – First half
1pm – Lunch break. Castle brunch available to scoundrels for $20 each (plus tax)
2pm to 4pm – Second half

Students do not need any knowledge of sleight-of-hand or con games, just a desire to learn. Past students have ranged from complete beginners to seasoned pros. This is not a members only class. Non-members are welcome to attend. All supplies are included to practice with during class sessions and are available for purchase for your convenience at an additional cost. Appropriate Castle dress code will still be in effect.
