Sorcerer's Apprentice Class at the Magic Castle

Anyone can learn simple card tricks, sleight-of-hand and magical wizardry from the best, by taking the four-week Sorcerer's Apprentice Class at the Magic Castle taught by history's first TV magician, Mark Wilson, and his wife and assistant, Nani. They teach magic basics while bestowing upon students a monthlong temporary membership to the infamous Castle, a private club for magicians. Wilson, a legend in magic circles and star of the 1960s CBS show Magic Land of Allakazam, has performed worldwide for more than 60 years. He uses wit and humor to bring the beginners along, showing them how to surprise friends, family and business associates with disappearing coins, rope gimmicks and other sorcery while breathing in the ghostly inspiration of the Castle's long history. If you seriously practice your new artistry, you can then try out at the Castle's twice-yearly audition. If you're good enough, you may be chosen as a magician member yourself. 7001 Franklin Ave., Hlywd. (661) 288-2517, naniwilson@sbcglobal.net. —Nikki Kreuzer
