See (or Book!) Magic Lantern Shows

For the last quarter century, The American Magic-Lantern Theater (AMLT) has been thrilling audiences with its re-creations of 19th century Magic Lantern Shows.

Touring with showman and singer/pianist to 38 states and six foreign countries, AMLT has presented its programs in every conceivable type of venue, from schools, to major museums, to Lincoln Center in New York.

The shows combine live drama and live music with beautiful colored images projected on the big screen. AMLT has eight different shows to choose from—Halloween, Christmas, New Year’s, Valentines, Spring/Summer, Sea, Patriotic, Bible—plus customized shows, illustrated lectures, and book talks. For more information on our touring shows, click here.
