The Amazing Max

Max Darwin combines magic and comedy in this hilarious live show, making objects appear and disappear and generally defying the laws of physics inches from theatergoers’ faces. This high-energy, interactive and all-around silly show is appropriate for audiences of all ages (recommended 3 & up) and is a perfect way to spend time with the entire family.


Thursday, August 11 at 10 a.m. and 12 p.m.
Painter and storyteller Christopher Agostino brings audience volunteers on stage and uses face painting to illustrate stories as he tells them. Captivated audience members learn about world cultures and listen to wonderful stories, ranging from the comic adventure of The Amazing Face Story to the heroic tale of Punia and the King of the Sharks.
