NEA Big Read: TA*DA
View an original play by Karen Poulsen for the NEA Big Read Original Play Series in the Root Family Auditorium.
Step right up folks and take a good look at our one and only "Sizzling Sideshow" from 1904! You will meet the fascinating "Talker" - Mademoiselle Marveline (Tosha Williams), Foley (Ryan McNally) - a rousabout turned stumbling magician, and Elly (Valerie Orzel) - a ticket taker and anxious magician's assistant. Watch as they attempt to learn the tricks of the trade from the amazing Jean Eugene Robert-Houdin (Wes Jones), who is known as the father of modern magic from the 1850s. This mismatched group of performers will attempt to entertain the audience after they discover that all of the regular side-show performers have disappeared.
Free to the public.
