Pedals, Pipes & Pizza @ Marion Palace Theatre
Aug 27 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

We’re turning back the hands of time at the Palace as we celebrate the marvels of the theatre’s Mighty Wurlitzer Organ.

Come experience a film, just as audience members did in our theatre 89 years ago! Playing on the big screen will be the 1929 Silent Film LIBERTY, starring the lovable comedic pair Laurel and Hardy. Renowned resident organist for Detroit’s fabulous Fox Theatre, Dave Calendine will accompany the film on the theatre’s prized 1924 instrument.

After the short film, Dave will play songs from “Music of the Mouse: The Walt Disney Song-Book,” which features famed tunes from cartoons of the 20s through today’s blockbuster hits such as “Frozen.” The Wurlitzer boasts more than 700 pipes which are designed to create the sounds of a full orchestra including percussion instruments, bells, chimes, whistles and horns. Patrons will have the opportunity to get an up close and personal look at the wonderful and mysterious Mighty Wurlitzer organ and enjoy pizza on the Palace stage.

Tickets for admission and pizza are $15.

Open Mic Nite in The May Pavilion @ Marion Palace Theatre
Sep 29 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

Have a hidden talent you’re just aching to reveal – a master magician waiting to pull a rabbit out of your hat?

Maybe you’ve recently written a song that just needs an audience ear, or you’ve conquered a musical instrument and you’re ready for the stage.
On the other hand, perhaps it’s no secret at all that you’re loaded with talent and love to sing, dance, juggle, or recite poetry.

If you answered yes, then we invite you to step onto the stage and into the spotlight for this season’s open mic nights. We’d love to experience your #MarionMade talent!

And with all that great talent on stage, we’ll need an audience! So, plan to join us for some hometown entertainment by previously undiscovered performers or those who’ve already made a name for themselves.

For your spot on the open mic roster, be sure to sign up in advance at the box office.

Spectator Admission: $5
Cash bar available. Food will be available for purchase. Please order in advance (BBQ Pulled Pork Sliders, Firehouse Baked Beans, Slaw).
