Multicultural (K-12)

“The Incredible Magic Hat Show”
Customized for Elementary, Middle & High Schools
A Dazzling Performance for Students K-12

Students are delighted by 30 multicultural, quick-change characters, distinguished by one shape that changes into hats from a variety of cultures and professions. Vignettes with comic situations and visual jests are presented, using comedy, magic, mime, music and “chapeaugraphy”. Well-known, historical and international characters are brought to life, accompanied by sound effects and famous musical scores.

  • A comical traveler daydreams while waiting at a train station, and launches an imaginary journey around the world and through history.
  • Historical characters include George Washington, Napoleon Bonaparte, Neil Armstrong, Elvis Presley, and many others.
  • Visual jests and situations portray characters from North and South America, Europe, India and Asia in historical context.

Benny Bendini performs the award winning show with his hilarious physical comedy, quick change magic, mime and chapeaugraphy.

“It was the greatest! The hat show is so appropriate for our secondary attendees (grades 6-12) and they are always whining about everything being directed at the elementary kiddos.”
