Big Bubble Circus

Mr. Guffaw (Jim Jackson) plays with soap bubbles in every size and form. Bubbles as big as the stage, a bubble containing an audience member or two, a window of bubbles, bubble sculpture, bubbles of glass and even balloon bubbles… add to these a hilarious mix of circus, magic and buffoonery and you have the spell binding chaos of Big Bubble Circus!
ZOOMobile: Animal Jobs

Join Parker Arts for a visit from Cheyenne Mountain Zoo and discover animal jobs that sustain our ecosystem. Animals from around the world serve important roles in their ecosystem.

Saturday, April 27, 10:00 a.m. at The Schoolhouse Theater
Story Agent Suzzie Sazzypants and her assistant Felix present a most perfect story... except everything goes wrong. Delightful Disaster takes center stage as they create “the most perfect mess that ever was.” Through side-splitting humor, slapstick, audience interaction and shadow play, OOPS becomes a fantastical story about learning from failure and finding joy in imperfection.
