Part of the 2018 Frigid Festival, “An Internment Camp Magic Show” is a historical interactive magic event written and performed by Rich Kameda and directed by Peter Michael Marino.

The setting is a World War II internment camp where Japanese Americans, primarily from the West Coast, were incarcerated in the aftermath of the bombing of Pearl Harbor. Unsure of his future, a Japanese magician entertains his fellow prisoners and us, the audience, with intriguing stories and magic from that era. The story is based on the experiences of an actual prisoner.

Rich Kameda is a Japanese American magician based in New York. He’s been a house magician at Ninja New York for more than ten years and has a monthly afternoon magic show at the Broadway Comedy Club. He is a founder, producer, and performer of the “League of Magical Improvisers,” a magic and improv hybrid show.

Peter Michael Marino is an award-winning solo show teacher, director, producer, and performer. He’s the creator of SOLOCOM, which has launched more than 500 world-premiere, international solo comedies at The People’s Improv Theater (including this one). His solo show directing credits include: Amy Marcs’s “Nice T!ts,” Mark Demayo’s “20 & Out,” and Mark Giordano’s “Mad Man.” Pete’s production company PM2 Entertainment has presented “David Mills: Shame!,” Jason Kravits’s “Off the Top!,” and the acclaimed international solo show “David Carl’s Celebrity One-Man Hamlet.”
