Paintbox Theatre: Tarzan
Is he really the king of the jungle? Not even close. Tarzan is a friend to all of the youngsters of the true, wild beasts. He teaches the little ones how to swim, and climb, and to avoid danger. So when Tarzan wants to brag, shout, and fly through the jungle, the older ones just play along.

Ed The Balloon Man's Magic Show
My name is Ed Popielarczyk. I am a professional magician, balloon sculptor, flea circus
ringmaster, and storyteller. I have been entertaining children and family audiences for
over 30 years. My magic show is a comedy show that uses a lot of audience participation. The kids are
the stars because they make the magic happen. I usually have lots of trouble! I don’t just
“do a trick” I tell a story that revolves around each trick. It may be a short story or a
longer one, but each story helps to bring the trick together. Every child who comes on
“stage” to be a helper receives a souvenir! The show is appropriate for ages three and up.
I hope to see you there!!! Ed

Henry The Juggler
Henry the Juggler (AKA Henry Lappen) is wanted! He is wanted by audiences everywhere for his zany attempts to defy the laws of gravity. He juggles any number of balls, clubs, rings, members of the audience . . . He balances strange items on the tip of his nose. Everything is accomplished wordlessly as Henry uses body language (and road signs!) to express himself. Caution: Henry is known to use innocent bystanders in his act.

Henry the Juggler is a professional. He has been seen by tens of thousands up and down the East Coast - at theaters, schools, libraries and festivals. He has been performing for over 30 years. He studied physical comedy at California's Dell' Arte School and continues his development with classes in tango and yoga. He is an active member of the International Jugglers' Association.
