Kaminski Auctions is pleased to present at auction Part Two of Le Grand David and his own Spectacular Magic Company’ s collection of props, original artwork, paintings, memorabilia and magic illusions. The unique and intriguing contents of the Larcom Theatre and a number of pieces from the company’s performances at the Cabot Street Cinema Theatre will be of interest for local fans, magic collectors and illusionists alike.

The first auction held on February 23, 2014 was a huge success as magicians, collectors and fans of Marco the Magi’s Production of Le Grand David and his Own Spectacular Magic Company filled the Cabot Street Cinema Theatre to bid and own a piece of magic history. Magic followers from all over the world registered for the auction, including locations as far away as Malaysia, Finland, and Argentina.

This resident company of magical performers amazed and entertained audiences of all ages with its two renowned stage magic extravaganzas, performed for over 35 consecutive years. Each performance sparkled with classic illusions of stage magic, dozens of elaborate backdrops and curtains, hundreds of stunning costumes, beautiful choreography, and lovely classical music, all blended into a splendidly colorful, enchanting and uplifting production.

The Le Grand David troupe was featured in publications such as TIME, Smithsonian, and Yankee magazines, and prominently listed in regional and national travel guides. In addition, the company performed seven times at The White House in Washington, D.C.

As with the previous Le Grand David auction held in February 2014, on April 10, 2016, magicians, collectors and the public will have the opportunity to bid on original works of art, magical illusions, costumes, collections of books and programs, hand-painted Larcom Theatre backdrops, and handsome theatre furnishings.
