Eight practitioners of an ancient art have skillfully plied their craft and soon the curious will willingly gather in a place of darkness, waiting to be enchanted. Or maybe it’s better to say we’re looking forward to audiences coming to Heartland Theatre for eight short plays, each dealing with the subject of Magic. It’s a night of prestidigitators, mysterious strangers, cursed objects, unexplained circumstances and unexpected consequences. Join us and be amazed!
A LITTLE MAGIC by Scott Mullen, North Hollywood CA
A woman finds herself between a woman who probably knows too much, and a man who apparently doesn’t know anything. Be careful what you wish for.

A curse is not a gift that keeps on giving. Unfortunately, people do keep on giving and when you’re handling a cursed object it can all turn into a cosmic game of hot potato. No, really. Hot potato.
TA-DA OR TOODLE-OO by Emily Hageman, Sioux City IA
Every magic act is a team effort. You’re thinking of the magician and his or her assistants, right? Oh, if only it were that simple.
WAITING FOR MACBETH by Eric Weil, Elizabeth City NC
It takes time for the Scottish play to weave its tale, and three special characters have plenty of time to chat. They don’t call them the weird sisters for nothing.
WITHIN ONE MONTH’S TIME by Steven Korbar, Torrance CA
What’s the difference between faith and self-delusion? How do you know if a person has information or is just bluffing? If you can make an accuser doubt themselves, have you negated the accusation?
