AMERICAN
CANCER
SOCIETY'

,

"I was 23 and a young hippie
traveling around the country, and
that's how I made money and got
around. I did street shows, and
from that I ran into little festivals
and fairs. On the way down the
coast of California, I heard about
Renaissance festivals."
After performing in Los Ange-
les and San Francisco, he moved
on to similar events in Minneso-
ta, Illinois and Texas.
"What intrigues me about
magic is the challenge I can offer
to people's minds," said Mr. Kauf-
man, who was raised in New
York and moved with his family
to California, where he studied
graphic arts.
"Magic is like a mind exercise,
a stretch. The more people do to
open up their minds, the more
they can see that the boundaries
and the pictures are bigger."
The writer of his own materi-
al, Magical Mystical Michael
looks for humorous ways to car-
ry out his illusions. His inter-
pretation of each effect reflects
his personality.
"There's almost total artistic
freedom at the festival," corn-
mented Mr. Ross, an aspiring
film writer. "You never know
what you're going to see, and
there's so much there.

RICHARD FAHNESTOCK

"It's also nice being surround-
ed by people who have an amaz-
ing amount in common. I'm
always meeting someone else
that has the same kind of mind-
set."
Enjoying theater since he was
a very young child, Mr. Ross
started writing in high school. He
moved on to study films and pur-
sued performing arts instruction
during summer programs pre-
sented by the Actors Alliance and
the University of Michigan mu-
sical theater faculty working out
of Interlochen.
After laboring during week-
days as a house painter, Mr. Ross
has been attending Renaissance
Festival workshops two evenings
a week. Because he is still part
of the academy, his festival earn-
ings will be in the form of tickets
to fair activities and coupons for
festival foods.
"It's fun spending entire week-
ends as somebody else," Mr. Ross
said. 'The Renaissance Festival
is a great place for that." ❑
