The 6th Annual Chicago Magic Competition will be at 3pm on Tuesday, July 7, 2009 at Navy Pier, and you can be a part of it! Show off your best eight minutes in front of an audience of more than 100 in the beautiful Crystal Gardens area of Navy Pier.
This is a rare opportunity for performers drawn from the Chicago magical community (representing a balanced roster of award-winners from local magic clubs and unaffiliated professionals) to share their art with the public in one of the most well-traveled and visible venues in the city, Navy Pier! It promotes healthy competition, educates the public about Chicago's magical history while emphasizing audience-pleasing entertainment over magician-centric technical feats, and even gives performers the opportunity to receive helpful feedback from a panel of media and theatre pros.
All performers will receive:
* Special commemorative tee shirt
* Enthusiastic applause from an audience of 100 at one of the most popular attractions in Chicago
* Hand-calligraphed Certificates of Appreciation created specifically for the occasion
* Helpful feedback from entertainment professionals, including representatives from Lifeline Theater, Court Theatre, and Chicago Shakespeare Theater.
First, Second, Third, and People's Choice Award Winners will also receive:
* Exquisite artisan-crafted magic wands from Fortress Wand Works (http://fortresswands.com).
* VIP ticket packages that include admission to ALL THREE of the city's theatrical magic performances: Magic Chicago (magicchicagoshow.com), The Magic Cabaret(magic-cabaret.com), and Supernatural Chicago (supernaturalchicago.com).
Get all the details and your Official Entry Form right now -- entry deadline is June 30th!
Best of luck,
