How to Stage a Faux Seance
You will need a dark room, a round table, and a chair for each member of the audience. Drape the table with a large cloth. A subtle, subliminal soundtrack adds atmosphere. The seance room should be lighted only by a source placed in the center of your seance table. A candle, small red bulb, or glow stick placed in a translucent glass bowl are particuraly effective (if you use a candle, you can adjust to go out midway by cutting the candle in half, snipping out a piece of the wick, then melting it back together.
Perform any of the following "rituals" at the before the actual "conjouring" begins to set the right mood...
.Sprinkle salt around the table in a "protective circle"
.Crush fresh rosemary saying that the sweet fragrance attracts friendly spirits
Now for the actual tricks
. Have a hidden partner throw small items around the room for "poltergeist activity"
. Manipulate a string tied to a chair or lamp to send it sliding across the floor.
.Flickering lights via. hidden partner and light switch
.Strange bells or knocking sounds again via. hidden partner
.Attach rulers to your arms and hide them under your sleeves. When the time comes to put your hands on the table,slip the rulers underneath and place hands firmly on table, you will be able to rock and sometimes even lift your side of the table.*
Remember not to rush, and escort your visitors out of the room before
you turn off the lights.
* You must have a fairly lightweight table for this stunt
Hope this helps!
