Reading Room: MYSTICAL TALES "Try-Out!"

Here's a never-reprinted tale from 1957...
...that could never be told today!
See if you can figure out why...
Consider...what current technology could be used in the place of the projector?
If the protaganist used anything like a smart phone, tablet, or other hand-held device, the audience would just claim another, hidden, device was supplying the images!
But when this story appeared in Atlas' Mystical Tales #8 (1957), tech was a lot simpler!
If artist Sid Check's work (especially the inking) looks similar to Wally Wood's, there's a good reason for it...Check worked in the same studio as Wood, Joe Orlando, and Harry Harrison, often assisting them the way they assisted him when deadlines loomed!
BTW, the writer is unknown!
