NPACF Presents: The Mud Bay Jugglers with The Tune Stranglers
Saturday, February 8
7:30 PM
Northshore Performing Arts Center on the Bothell High Campus

Decompress after the SuperBowl frenzy.  Unwind.

This startlingly inventive troupe juggles genres as easily as objects, weaving theater, dance, physical comedy, and juggling into a creative and infectious entertainment experience. Based in Olympia, Washington, the Mud Bay Jugglers work their choreographic and juggling magic to lively music for a mesmerizing and emotional performance.

Since 1980, these masters of levity - Doug Martin, Alan Fitzthum, and Harry Levine - have captivated audiences of all ages at theaters, universities, festivals and events through out the United States and Western Canada. About the only thing predictable about their constantly evolving material is that there will always be plenty of music and mirth - and lots of surprises. No wonder Jugglers World Magazine called them, "One of the most original and creative juggling troupes performing today."

Adults: $25, Seniors: $22.50, Youth: $17
