Handbook for the Theme Park Magician by Wayne R. Wissner

The amusement park and theme park business is an interesting opportunity for magicians. If you have ever wanted to experience this performing venue ... now is the time ... and this is the ebook. The Handbook For The Theme Park Magician will tell you all you need to know: how the parks operate, how they book their attractions, what to expect (both personally and professionally) and more.

You will be given sound and practical advice from a man (Wayne Wissner) who has made his living for many years in this lucrative field. Advice on your act, your assistants, your daily life (both on and off stage), how to make extra money, etc.

One chapter, titled A Day In The Life, details, hour by hour (and sometimes by the minute), what you can expect your daily schedule to consist of. And, for the first time ... a ten-page listing of sixty theme and amusement parks which use magic and magicians ... complete with addresses and phone numbers. (These may be out of date.) Prepare your publicity and send it off to one or more of these addresses.

It is well illustrated with photographs and promotional artwork. It is a book jammed full of practical advice ... presented with a genuine sense of humor. There are numerous hilarious incidents related throughout the ebook (and you can learn from them as well!).
