Labbe is from Steep Falls and is vice president of the Maine chapter of Society of American Magicians. Doves, rabbits and other surprise guests are part of his routine.

Grassette of Rumford is the president of the Maine chapter of the Society of American Magicians and will be performing his award winning Lazer Amazer routine, which involves lazers and fazers with manipulations of silks, balls and a silver retractable piece of duct work. Scot’s daughter Kaitlyn has been dabbling in magic and will help her father with a two person, 12 ring, linking ring routine which is a unique, and original presentation of one of magic’s oldest effects.
