Professor DR Schreiber

As the Historical Conjurer, Professor DR Schreiber evokes the spirit of early magical performances.  Professor DR Schreiber brings parlor magic back to the public. Early in the 19th century, conjuring (as magic was called then) emerged as a genuine art form and entertainment.  Magicians, known as “professors of natural philosophy" and conjuring, would rent taverns, legitimate theaters or lecture halls for the exhibition and displays of legerdemain, necromancy, or what would today be called “illusion” and “magic tricks.”  Top dollar would be paid by the citizens of Europe to see the latest discoveries in the science of “natural philosophy” presented by these conjurers. Today, Professor DR Schreiber presents an historic look at the beginnings of modern magic in his performances and exhibitions.  Professor DR Schreiber leads his audiences on a stroll through the past centuries of conjuring entertainment. His unique presentations entertain while educating the audience about historical events, literary and cultural figures, and the science and art of conjuring.

 

Professor DR Schreiber is a member of the Academy of Magic Arts (Magic Castle) and board member for the Society of American Magicians Portland Assembly.   In 2011, Professor DR Schreiber was presented with the Stan Kramien Excellence in Stage Magic Award from the Society of American Magicians Portland Assembly.  He has performed and lectured for conferences and events up and down the West Coast, in addition to the UK and Europe. He is also an instructor in magic as well as a magic consultant for legitimate theater companies.  He is also a magic historian and historical re-enactor, as well.
