Discovering Magic

with Andrew Pinard

Monthly: Select Wednesdays

This “mind-numbing, jaw-dropping, eye-opening” experience takes audiences on a guided tour of the impossible and the absurd. Using only the most ordinary of objects, accomplished actor, conjuror, puppeteer, storyteller, and award-winning performer Pinard brings the ordinary to life with the most surprising results.

The only show of its kind in the New England, audiences have traveled from throughout New England and beyond to experience sleight of hand, con games, psychology, history, science, comedy, political spin, and more through the eyes of a “perceptual engineer” on his quest to explore distortion and guile. Audiences can expect a truly unique experience and insight into how remarkable human perception and interpretation can be.

In its 8th Season of monthly performances!

Wednesday @ 7:30pm.

Gutenberg! The Musical!

Yes, it really is a show about Johann Gutenberg, inventor of the printing press. But it's also about Bud and Doug, two wannabe playwrights who've written a show about Gutenberg -- a show they're convinced is the best musical ever written, ever! Now they're doing a showcase for some really big Broadway producers. But can two guys with no set, no costumes and a handful of props stage an entire Broadway show? They can sure have fun trying!

Produced by the Community Players of Concord, NH.

Unfortunately the group’s co-founders and biggest stars, and erstwhile lovers, Biron and Rose, struggle to maintain focus. Biron can’t get past the death of his wife two years earlier – a death he is convinced he caused by having an affair with Rose. He has taken refuge in religion, making regular retreats to a nearby monastery and the dubious ministrations of the enigmatic Brother Rene. Tired of waiting for Biron, Rose has found a retreat of her own on a Caribbean yacht with a smarmy lawyer. Can Rose and Biron work out their differences – or will their bickering mean the end of “The Great A&P”?

Duration: 120 minutes, 1 intermission.
