2018 SUMMER LIBRARY TOUR
A Program to Support Summer Reading
Michael’s Rockin’ Juggling Comedy Show presents a wide variety of juggling skills that produce sound and music during a 45 minute up-close and intimate, fun program for children and families. Michael juggles a musical-magical Chinese chime stick, swings humming pois in the air, juggles silver chimes, and delights children and teens with his dazzling acts performed precisely to upbeat music. Music is comprised of patterns and rhythms and so is juggling! It totally rocks!
“Michael Menes’s performances are fun and spectacular
for audiences of all ages. What a wonderful way to celebrate
all of the ways that libraries can engage and captivate young people.”
-Carol Huotari, Paris Public Library Trustee and former RSU 10 Librarian
