Friday February 5: Friday Night at  KAX Conference  hosted by Mark Daniel

7:00 PM EST US

A Visit with Greg Wilson

The Wilson Magical Legacy

and Beyond!

 

 

With his legendary dad, Mark, passing at 91, The Wilson's Magical Legacy is carrying forward with his son Greg Wilson.

Mark and Nani Wilson inspired legions of young performers, including your humble scribe, with their "Happy Magic".

What you may might not know about is the thousands of KIDshows and Family shows they presented live, in addition to their well known TV appearances. They were deep in the live performing trenches just like us.

Their son Greg is now a full time performer in the family tradition, and yes, KIDshows and family shows continue to be a staple.

Honoring the people that have contributed so much to our art is an important tradition at KAX, and this year we continue that, by honoring Mark.

Greg Wilson will help you get to know his Magical Family. I think you'll be surprised with the hardworking Wilsons. It's also cool to know how the magic and puppet world intersected seamlessly with them. Time Well Spent!
