NEWS EUGENE BURGER LEGACY FUND June 1, 1939 - August 8, 2017 Master Magician Eugene Burger touched the lives of thousands of people -- and his teachings have reached countless more. You can preserve Eugene's legacy while helping hundreds of talented, dedicated magi- cians learn the art and craft of magic at the School Eugene most loved. The Estate of Eugene Burger -- administered by Michael Burke and Robert Charles in Chicago, and fol- lowing Eugene's wishes -- has founded a special, new Eugene Burger Legacy Fund at the McBride Magic & Mystery School in Las Vegas. Every dollar of your gift will help talented magicians who need financial assistance learn from world-famous magicians and magic teachers at the world's most important school for serious students of magic. On behalf of the Estate of Eugene Burger and on behalf of the Faculty and Staff of the Magic & Mystery School, thank you for honoring Eugene in this way -- and for making a big difference in the life of a deserving magician who needs a hand to "grow in the art of magic." Michael Burke and Robert Charles The Estate of Eugene Burger Lawrence Hass, Ph.D. Associate Dean, Magic & Mystery School VISIT: TAYLOR MARTIN'S INDY MAGIC MONTHLY MOVES TO ITS NEW HOME ON SEPTEMBER 5 Starting Tuesday, September 5, Taylor Martin moves his long-running magic show, Indy Magic Monthly to the Indy Eleven theatre at IndyFringe. Indy Magic Monthly is the longest running regular spin-off of the IndyFringe Festival which started in 2005. The opening show will feature an all-star cast including Dayton, Ohio’s Matthew David Stanley, known for his side-splitting magic and comedy, and from Chicago, a rising star of the Windy City, Patrick Livingston. Patrick epitomises the new style of magician that you see on the latest TV magic shows. And finally, Peru, Indiana’s Mentalist Jim Keplinger will be there to read your mind in his own mysterious ways. "We've loved our nine-year association with Theatre on the Square, but it's time to move into a new theatre purpose-built for magic. The Fringe theatres host the January Winter Magic Festival and with that comes the ability to reach out to a wider audience who love magic.” explained Taylor. "I'll continue to host the shows and perform a piece or two myself. We'll be able to attract world-class magicians to a purpose-built theatre ideal for showcasing magic,” says Taylor. "I'm hoping for at least another 10 years of presenting great magic to the fine folks of Indiana." 8 VANISH Magazine
