On December 31, 2006, Ring 50 Past President Eric Henning will be the headline family entertainer at First Night Annapolis. Beginning at 6:30 p.m., he'll be performing a special 30-minute show five times throughout the evening in the 600-seat Key Auditorium at St. John's College. Even though Henning is in the event's largest venue, only 10% of the expected 30,000 visitors will be able to see his show. "It's a great honor, but also a great opportunity," said Henning. "It's going to be challenging to fill such a large space with magic!"

Since 1990, Maryland's capital city has been transformed every year on December 31st into a swirling theatre-without-walls, a non-stop stage where the easygoing atmosphere erases barriers between performer and audience. This festival offers spirited indoor performances in buildings seldom used for anything the likes of what First Night Annapolis brings to them and surrounding streets as well.
Beginning with First Act’s performances where children big and small are entertained in highly interactive environments throughout the evening’s First Night Annapolis programming, family-centric performances run right up until our traditional “March to Midnight” for the waterfront fireworks finale!
