[ARCHIVED] Canton’s Village Theater Welcomes “Mario the Maker Magician”

Mario the Maker Magician Portrait

As seen on Sesame Street and Sprout Network, Mario "the Maker Magician" Marchese is a New York-based touring children's performer who will appear on the Main Stage at The Village Theater at Cherry Hill in Canton, MI on Sunday, April 28, 2019, at 3:00 p.m.

Touted as “the best kids’ magician in the world!!” by David Blaine, Mario was the opening act for the most recent 2018 David Blaine Live Tour. An award-winning children’s performer, Mario is known for his integration of DIY electronics and robotics into his shows. It’s a modern take on old school vaudeville and slapstick…upbeat, interactive, punk rock, and hilarious that’s sure to delight audiences of all ages.

Mario’s shows offer hilarious, and very interactive experiences that leave children and families inspired to nurture their own creative paths. It’s vintage meets the future type of performance, much like Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin for the modern age - with a mad inventor twist.

The show will run approximately 50-60 minutes in length and is ideal for ages 3-10 and their families.

Tickets for this performance range from $15-$20. Purchase your tickets online today at or by calling 734/394-5300. Tickets can also be purchased at The Village Theater Box Office one hour prior to show time.
