Mark Nizer 4D @ Marion Palace Theatre
Jan 21 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Imagine a concert experience that incorporates light, sound, and color to create a multidimensional 4D visual feast for the eyes. Throw in world-class juggling, a good dose of outrageous humor, and some unexpected technology and you have Mark Nizer’s unique, one-of-a-kind show that has been described by Performance Magazine as “nothing less than brilliant.”

Entertaining for all ages, Nizer takes his show to a new dimension and gives audience members special glasses to see a portion of the show in mind-blowing 4D. The fun begins from the moment Nizer takes the stage. While most performers ask people to turn off their cell phones, Nizer asks his audience to turn ON their phones. With the help of his virtual assistant, Siri Nizer (of iPhone fame), he then uses the devices as an interactive lighting element.

Reserved Seating $12, $16, $20 adult, $8 student. Ticket-holders are also invited to attend a pre-show event in the May Pavilion!

Flatt Lonesome @ Marion Palace Theatre
Jan 26 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm

FLATT LONESOME is a young, new group of pickers fresh to the scene. While deeply-rooted in bluegrass music’s historic classics, they also have an energetic flair for country sounds, progressive jams, and soul-stirring gospel music while never forsaking their traditional essence.

The band is comprised of Robertson siblings Kelsi Harrigill (mandolin, vocals), Charli (fiddle, vocals) and Buddy (guitar, vocals), along with Dominic Illingworth (acoustic bass), Paul Harrigill (banjo), and Michael Stockton (resophonic guitar). The Mufreesboro, Tennessee-based band first arrived on the bluegrass music scene in 2011. Since that time, FLATT LONESOME has sky-rocketed to the top of the music industry, attracted thousands of dedicated fans, and collected coveted music awards including three 2016 International Bluegrass Music Association trophies: Vocal Group of the Year, Album of the Year for their record “Runaway Train,” and Song of the Year for “You’re the One.”

If you love high lonesome harmony, soaring sibling vocals and powerful bluegrass music, then you will love FLATT LONESOME!

Ground Hog Day – Buckeye Chuck @ iHeart Media
Feb 2 @ 7:00 am – 8:00 am

Buckeye Chuck, Ohio’s official weather-predicting groundhog, will poke his head out of his winter burrow. He prepares to emerge from his personal den, in the woods behind the studios of iHeart Radio in Marion, to deliver Ohio’s most accurate yearly forecast. Not since the creation of the Doppler Radar has any weather related event been talked about with such majesty and anticipation. According to legend, if Buckeye Chuck sees his shadow at sunrise, Ohioans will have 6 more weeks of winter, so hope for a cloudy morning. He will greet his adoring public, local officials and distinguished reporters during this mass media event at the iHeart studios. At that time, Chuck will deliver the forecast for the rest of the winter. A bountiful feast of complimentary SPAM sandwiches, coffee, and hot chocolate is always served. Why SPAM? It’s “Ground Hog”!
