Jan. 4, 2011 - PRLog -- Experience the SCIENCE OF MAGIC! performed by internationally acclaimed deceptionist Richard Hatch. In addition to his sleight of hand performances, Hatch will conduct two-hour hands-on classes that focus on performing extraordinary effects with ordinary objects.

"Theatrical Magic is based on scientific principles," says Hatch, who holds two masters degrees in Physics from Yale University. "Magicians learn to apply those principles in secret ways that exploit loopholes in our logic to create the impression that something impossible has happened." Students in the classes will learn to use such ordinary objects as cards, coins, rubber bands and even paper clips to perform apparently impossible feats. All students will be required to sign a non-disclosure agreement regarding the material in the class. "This is the traditional Magician's Oath of Secrecy," explains Hatch. "It is really not to protect the secrets, but to protect the audience from unwanted exposure to those secrets. Harsh experience over many centuries has shown that most non-magicians are disappointed to learn that "magic" is based on science, rather than something more mysterious. So magicians have learned that the best way to preserve an audience's experience of wonder is not to spoil that emotion by revealing the science behind it."

The performances are scheduled at 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Saturday, January 29th and at 2 p.m. on Sunday, January 30th. The two-hour classes will begin at 12:30 and 4 p.m. on the 29th and at 3 p.m. on the 30th.

Admission to the SCIENCE OF MAGIC! show is $10 or $7 for DSP Members and includes admission to the museum on the day of the show.

Tuition to the magic class will be $30 or $25 for DSP Members. Tuition includes all supplies needed for class work.

Hatch's appearances and classes are brought to Discovery Science Place by Dr. Kent Boozer, DDS of Boozer Dental Works.

Richard Hatch information:

Although Richard Hatch holds two graduate degrees in Physics from Yale University, he finds it easier apparently to violate the laws of nature than to discover them. He has been performing his unique brand of magic full time since 1983. In 1985, shortly after winning first place in the annual New England Close Up Competition in Worcester, Massachusetts, Richard moved with his wife, violinist Rosemary Kimura, to Houston, Texas where they were based until moving to Richard’s hometown of Logan, Utah this Fall. For several years he honed his craft entertaining the guests as one of the house magicians at Houston's Magic Island Nightclub before devoting himself exclusively to private and corporate work, traveling internationally on behalf of his clients. Hatch is a member of the Academy of Magical Arts, the International Brotherhood of Magicians, and is a lifetime member of the Society of American Magicians. Among magicians he is known as the translator from German into English of works about Johann Nepomuk Hofzinser (1806 – 1875), Paul Potassy, and the first four volumes of Roberto Giobbi’s acclaimed “Card College” course of card manipulation. This past year he was a featured performer at the exhibit "Magic: The Science of Wonder" at the Houston Museum of Natural Science. He and his wife are the founders and faculty of the Hatch Academy of Magic and Music, housed in the historic 1878 Thatcher-Young Mansion in Logan, Utah.
