A Magic Variety Show by Eric Hawkesworth

This ebook describes a number of new variety acts for the amateur entertainer that will enable him to present up-to- date versions of Chapeaugraphy (making many hats from one brim), Mind Reading, Chinese Paper Folding, Magic Spelling, Paper Tearing, Lightning Cartoons, Shadowgraphs and Magic.

Practically all the materials used to construct the simple props can be found in the home or bought in local stores, and great use is made of ordinary newspaper.

It is vital that talk and action should be practised together, so a detailed script with full patter and performing notes is given with each act. Notes on how to dress up the acts with extra props, costumes, lights, music and stage settings are included.

All these scripts and routines are Eric Hawkesworth's own invention and have been used in his programmes.
