Pontine Theatre Presents THE YOYO SHOW, Sat 8 March at 2pm
John Higby brings back that nostalgic toy, the Yo-yo, reminding audiences of old favorite tricks such as Walk the Dog and Rock the Baby, then amazing them with new and bizarre tricks, such as Boingy-Boingy and Iron Whip. Yo-yos attached to bouncy balls, yo-yos with 10-foot strings, and multiple yo-yos looping while hula hooping and unicycling are just some of his finely tuned feats. High skill and deft timing to swingin' music coupled with high energy and sarcastic humor make the Yo-Yo Show a favorite for every age.
As seen on David Letterman, he holds a Guinness World Record, a Yo-Yo World Champion title, and has performed in over 20 countries. Tickets are $12 and may be purchased in advance online. Tickets may also be purchased at the door (cash & checks only) a half-hour prior to the performance, based on availability. Purchase a special hand-painted YoYo (created by John Higby) at the show and stay for a half-hour workshop with John Higby.
