Kimball Library News 10/13/14

THE HARRY POTTER HOGWARTS TRAINING ACADEMY: The Hogwarts Academy Training is a fully interactive performance which prepares the participants for their entrance into Hogwarts. Professor Jungle-Flick (Jungle Jim of Boston), of the American School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, leads the children through a series of activities designed to show them the rigors of becoming official magical conjurers. This performance combines audience interaction along with balloon magic with a specific goal: that the children complete the quests presented to them, and then are ready for the next level of their wizard training.
Some of the activities:

·         Quidditch Training
·         Sorcery 101 (where the children learn to cast spells themselves!)
·         Defense Against the Dark Arts
·         Hogwarts History

The professor uses over a dozen volunteers in this performance, and the whole show is a lot of fun. Get your camera ready, because you’ll be catching some great shots of you or your kids laughing, smiling, and having the best time of their lives!

This family show is developmentally geared for ages 4-12, but all ages are welcome to participate, and fun is for everyone.  We need all ages to register as we do have space limitation.  Adults can just use the word 'adult' so we can have an accurate head count.  PLEASE PRINT A TICKET TO GAIN ADMITTANCE.  This is a new feature that we are using to keep count.

This amazing event is being held on Saturday, November 15, at 10:30am at The Atkinson Community Center, 4 Main Street, Atkinson, NH and is being generously sponsored by the Atkinson Recreation Department.  “GIVE BACK” and bring non-perishable food items and canned goods to benefit local food pantries. 

Please dress in wizard garb to get into the spirit of things!  A few prizes will be awarded for the most 'wizard-like' in several age categories.

Residents have preference for this event.  We ask that non-resident guests and friends wait until Friday, November 14th, to put your name in the queue.
