Celebration Barn Theater of South Paris will present a performance by comedic magician Peter Boie on Saturday, July 16 at 8 p.m. Boie, who some recognize by his trademark orange sneakers, grew up in Maine, where he first became fascinated with magic at the age of eleven. That early interest blossomed into an exciting career that has since taken him across North America and to national TV, where he has performed for millions on the CT Network’s hit show “Penn and Teller Fool Us.”
Boie describes himself as “a Magician for Non-Believers,” a term he uses to be honest with his audience. Magic isn’t real… but for the length of the show, he will make you believe that it is. Combining original mind-blowing magic with a heavy dose of humor has made him one of the top-booked college acts in the country and has earned him nominations for Campus Activities Magazine’s Entertainer of the Year. Boie describes his show in terms of two things: “Astonishing magic and having a good time,” he says. “And I don’t skimp on either!”
