Bizarre and spooky magic is all the rage these days! Find out why with this classic of the genre. A Lightning Rod to the Spirits contains four exciting routines -- ones that are proud to have their feet planted very firmly in the world of Spooky and Bizarre Magick! Utilizing the most common and simple props (a thumb tip, for example, and a Magic Coloring Book - not to mention a frying pan!), these routines will take your audience on a genuinely freaky journey. There are no half measures here - these routines are designed to actually spook an audience!
The routines feature common, everyday items such as a watch, a sachet of salt, a child's coloring book and yes, a frying pan. Why? Because, when the mundane and the ordinary become infected with supernatural forces, an audience is likely to become genuinely affected by your performance.
The routines included are:
TIME AT LAST
Traumatic events cause a nurse's watch to house an unhappy spirit.
OUT OF THE FRYING PAN
Like a bad joke gone wrong, an unusual murder weapon continues to exhibit homicidal tendencies.
After a lifetime in the service of his dark masters, a Dhampire demonstrates just exactly what it is that makes him different from both Human and Vampire.
THE COLORING-IN BOOKS
A proud father finds out that his daughter's newly acquired artistic skills come from a very dark place. Time to call in the local vicar!
If spooky magic and the bizarre is your style, or if you're wanting to add a little freakiness into your magic, you will find much here to interest and excite. All magical elements are practically self-working, allowing the performer to concentrate on presentation and atmosphere.
Bizarre magician, Lee Enfield, had this to say about A Lightning Rod to the Spirits:
"This. Was. Awesome. Great, simple routines. Great stories. And all ready to perform with the minimum of practice. What more could you ask?"
