Meeting on May 13, 2020: Free online lecture by Robert Ramirez

Dear Ring 216 members and friends,

On May 13, fire up your computers, grab a beverage, and enjoy a professional lecture from a rising start in magic, Robert Ramirez.

Robert has performed in all five showrooms at the Magic Castle in a single year. He has  performed at Magic Live, Genii, and Blackpool magic convention. He's also an accomplished actor having starred in the national tour of the Tony-winning musical IN THE HEIGHTS.

This professional lecture will be aired live via the Zoom platform on the date and time listed below. Ring 216 is offering this paid lecture as a free gift to all members, friends, and guests during this challenging time.

This lecture will cover strong magic routines with props that can be made at home using simple things as glue, tape, rubber bands, balloons, paper bags, cards, and magnets. Physically creating a magic trick you're going to perform is one of the most fulfilling things you can do. It helps a part of creativity that can only be unlocked by doing. We will also discuss looking through old magic books and updating them for current times.

TIME: 7:30 – 9:30 p.m.
PRICE: Free for all Ring 216 members, guests, and friends
