Mr. Pennygaf’s Cirkus Sideshow Spectacle | Unplugged Sundays @ the Michener |
Mr. Pennygaf (aka Keith Nelson, co-founder of Bindlestiff Family Cirkus) takes you on a tour of American popular entertainment, from carnival midways to Broadway, from the sawdust of the circus and sideshow to the grand spectacles of vaudeville.
The show features novelty juggling, feats of daring, comedy, sideshow stunts, and audience interaction. See Mr. Pennygaf balance bottles on wooden spoons and tops on strings, experience a classic plate spinning frenzy, and witness a real live sword swallower!
Following the performance, community members will create works of art and learn some circus skills in response to the performance.
