Peanut Butter & Jam - Mario the Maker Magician

Back by popular demand, NYC's Mario the "Maker" Magician (as seen on Sesame Street, the Sprout Channel and most recently on tour with David Blaine) is making his way to GPAC in his 1971 VW bus! More than just a performer, Mario is also an inventor who creates his own props. He is known for his dedication to the Maker Movement and STEM initiatives and his integration of DIY electronics and robotics into his performance. Regardless, he never sacrifices the old-school slapstick vibe that audiences so love. Its vintage meets the future Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin for the modern age, with a mad inventor twist.

Parents and children ages 8 and under are invited to move and groove in these highly interactive performances held on scheduled Saturdays at 9:30 and 10:30 am in the Watkins Studio Theater.

Purchase tickets by phone or in person through the box office. Children's tickets are $8 and includes two adults. Box office phone: 901.751.7500 or visit us M-F 10am - 5pm. Purchase tickets online.
