Early Fun Includes Stories, Magic Just For Children

December 27, 1991

In keeping with its family focus, First Night Annapolis is offering a number of events for people with small children, between 4:30 and 5:30 p.m., plus some special dining opportunities.

The fun starts at St. Mary's auditorium, when Mary Carter Smith, the famed Griot, or story teller, from Baltimore shares billing with master illusionist David Seebach.

Carrying her cow tail switch, Carter tells stories from around the world. Seebach turns silk into live rabbits and makes ducks disappear, in an elaborate performance of close-up magic.

Down at the Marriott Hotel, guitarist and singer Ray Owen performs 200 years of American music. Also in concert will be Jojo Niceguy, combining improvisations on character and action suggestions from the audience, balancing, juggling, clowning and magic.

After the fun, First Night families are invited to Juan Alfredo's Waterfront Cafe, between 5:30 and 7 p.m., for a buffet supper and other entertainment surprises.

No admission button is required to any First Night event for children 6 and under. Children must be accompanied by adults.
