Wellesley Community Center Stages Ultimate Prop from Diamonds Magic Shop on North Shore

The Wellesley Community Center will supply another edition of Gil Stubbs’ World of Magic on March 5, Wednesday at 4:00PM.  This month’s special guest is Eddie Gardner, who is referred to amongst his peers as a ‘magician’s magician’.  Eddie says, “My objective is to entertain and make people laugh.  Fun should be my middle name”.   For the last 38 years, Eddie has done just that, while performing for conventions, trade shows, restaurants, children's parties, schools, libraries, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and meetings of corporations.  He has also performed for families and parties of the Red Sox, Bruins and Celtics! Sometimes in the professional franchise world, it takes a little magic to get things done.  And, he has advised and taught Shriner Clowns to cover all the bases. 

So that leads us to a curious question.  Have you ever wondered where all of the gear comes from when magicians perform?  It cannot be easily sourced, that’s for sure, but like every discipline there is always a category of suppliers who specialize in products and services for a given line of work.   Perhaps you have wondered where dentists get their supplies from?  Oh, you haven’t?  We can all agree that it does not ‘magically’ appear out of thin air.  The same holds true with magic accoutrement.   Not only does Eddie own and manage the largest magic shop in New England, called Diamonds Magic in Peabody, but he has dedicated his career to the advancement of the art.   This has been accomplished through professional organizations, where he is an active officer of a SAM (Society of American Magicians) Chapter North of Boston, where he has received multiple national awards from SAM, but also is an advisor to the local assembly of The Society of Young Magicians.

Don’t hesitate to register for your free admission to Gil Stubbs’ World of Magic on Wednesday March 5 at 4:00PM.  The taping will run one hour and end at 5:00PM.  We still have seats in inventory.  For additional information and to register, email the Wellesley Community Center at info@wellesleycommunitycenter.org or call the main office at 781-235-4172.
