June 1st @ 7 p.m., June 2nd @ 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., June 3rd @ 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.
The sheer amount of energy that jugglers Tony Pezzo, Wes Peden and Patrik Elmnert put into a single performance of Water on Mars could probably be used to power a small town. For a week or so. The occasionally color-coded, sometimes piñata-smashing, randomly backflip-throwing and always invigorating juggling patterns of this trio leave audiences in a preposterous state of joyful being. Don’t miss out on this extreme juggle party.
