7:30 pm, Central Middle School Auditorium (public presentation- 5th & 6th graders will see the American History show during the school day)

Travel back in time with the boisterous fun of America’s only Victorian magic lantern show. An authentic 1890s visual extravaganza projected on a full-sized screen- the kind of show that led to the movies! The Muscatine Art Center is bringing the Connecticut-based company to the community as part of the humanities programs for the exhibition, “Jacob A. Riis: How the Other Half Lives.”

On November 22nd at 7:30 p.m., the American Magic Lantern Theater Company will use magic lantern “technology” to present a free holiday show for the public at Central Middle School Auditorium. The magic lantern show is full of holiday cheer and appropriate for children ages 6 and up. This program is offered free of charge thanks to grants from the Community Foundation of Greater Muscatine and the Howe Foundation. All are welcome.
