Off to a Great Start: von Scheibner Wins Leveridge Trophy

 

Sixteen year-old magician is called a “Teenage Talent” by the IC South London newswire today.

Troy von Scheibner recently picked up a well-deserved Mark Leveridge Close-up Trophy from the Young Magicians Club, a junior branch of the prestigious Magic Circle.

Inside Magic Favorite and Contributor Mandy Davis works with the Young Magicians Club extensively and should be congratulated for her dedication to the next generation of great magic.

Mr. von Scheibner is already working professionally in area restaurants and is known for his excellence in close-up magic.

He prefers the close-up magic; perhaps because of his early influence from David Blaine. He recalled seeing Mr. Blaine perform on television when he was just 12. He sought to develop magic that share the “close-up ‘how?’ factor of the US street magician.”

Mr. von Scheibner notes, “Stage magic can be very impressive but people in the audience can think, ‘oh, it’s all done with mirrors.? But with close-up magic people can’t explain what they’ve just seen happen in front of them.”

His classmates at Crofton School, Brockley, serve as the young master’s test audiences for new effects. His specialties include rubber bands, ropes, and cards.

His short-term goal? He intends to audition for the Magic Circle when he turns 18. “That’s tough because you have to do a routine in front of a panel of older magicians.”

Good luck to Mr. von Scheibner and thank you to the IC South London editor who is apparently a magic fan. This one news wire produces more stories about young magicians than any other around the world. We have to think the editor of the newspaper/syndicate service is a magician. The article was originally written by Charlotte Tamvakis of the Greenwich Mercury.
