Gizmo Guys Juggle Gravity with Goofy Gags

Gizmo Guys Juggle Gravity with Goofy Gags LessonPLAN (Performing Live Arts Now), the Tower Theatre Foundation’s award-winning series bringing students and families to the theatre and using performing arts to enhance education, continues Tuesday, Feb. 18 at 7 pm with the Gizmo Guys.

Performers Allan Jacobs and Barrett Felker have amazed and amused audiences around the world. Sure, they've made numerous television appearances from Nickelodeon to Comedy Central, won international juggling competitions, and taught at top circus schools. But what makes their act so appealing is their winning combination of dazzling technique and subtle education. Their show “Objects in Motion” actually explains spatial, rhythmic and numerical patterns, gravity, inertia, and symmetry through skillful juggling and an infectious sense of humor.

The LessonPLAN Series is sponsored by BendBroadband. Supporting sponsor is Warren John West. The series is made possible by grants from Children’s Edu-Investors Fund, WESTAF, Bank of the Cascades, and the WHH Foundation. The programs are hosted by NewsChannel 21’s Bob Shaw. Study guides and information on an educational matinee are available by contacting info@towertheatre.org.

The nonprofit Tower Theatre Foundation owns and operates the historic stage in downtown Bend. The Foundation’s mission is to be the leading performing arts organization, providing cultural and education programs that make an essential contribution to Central Oregon’s lifestyle and strengthen the community.
