About the Workshop - Held in CCT's intimate theatre, John Tudor's Magic Workshop for Kids begins with a private performance for workshop attendees. He will incorporate many of his theatrical illusions as well as his signature slight-of-hand work. After his performance, John will lead a hands-on interactive workshop bringing some of the "secrets" of magic to life for the workshop participants. Stressing imagination and creativity and focusing on theatricality and showmanship, John will teach students the basics of several simple illusions that they may take home and rehearse to perfection. All required special materials for these illusions will be provided.

The arts in general, and especially the art of magic, teach valuable life lessons and enhance social skills, self confidence, problem solving abilities, imagination, concentration, motor skills/dexterity and public speaking skills. Adults are welcome to stay and watch the magic happen, but are not required to.
