The Amazing Marlo can produce a single flower from thin air and, with a hand quicker than the eye, change it into a huge bouquet. For feats to mesmerize young and old, with music and audience participation, children and their parents won't want to miss "The Amazing Marlo Magic Show" at 1: 30 p.m., 3 p.m. and 4: 30 p.m. Saturday at the Value City Court in Westview Mall, on Route 40 at I-695 on the west side of town. The Easter Bunny will magically appear as a finale to each show. Admission is free. Call (410) 744-5650. For a rich, dark tale of romance and the epic battle between good and evil, don't miss "Jekyll & Hyde." The Gothic musical thriller will open Tuesday and run through April 7 at the Morris A. Mechanic Theatre, 1 N. Charles St. Robert Cuccioli plays the young Dr. Jekyll and the sinister Mr. Hyde, and Christine Noll is the beguiling Lisa Carew, his fiancee.

The 28 tumblers, contortionists, jugglers, cyclists, gymnasts and musicians will perform at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. as part of a 50-city U.S. tour. Tickets range from $9.50 to $17.50. Call (301) 694-8585.
