Summit County Library to bring circus to town next week
July 7, 2017
The Summit County Library's summer reading program for children, teens and adults will bring the Big Bubble Circus to all three of the library's locations next week.
According to a news release, Jim Jackson, who performs under the stage name "Mr. Guffaw," will star in a silly, family-friendly circus featuring tricks, surprises and non-stop laughs. For the show, Jackson will create giant soap bubbles of all sizes and shapes, and it concludes with one audience member inside one of Jackson's giant soap bubbles.
Jackson has performed his unique style of buffoonery in theaters and circuses throughout the world for more than 35 years, according to the library. He's a juggler, a clown and a magician, and his shows blend physical comedy with verbal improvisation and imagery.
Jackson will perform at 11 a.m. Tuesday at the South Branch Library in Breckenridge, 10:30 a.m. Wednesday at the North Branch Library in Silverthorne and 1 p.m. at the Main Library in Frisco.
Also from 11 a.m. to noon Wednesday, the South Branch will host a volunteer fair, in which volunteers from several Summit County organizations will offer up games and activities to demonstrate why volunteering is important.
The South Branch and Main Library are also hosting Read with a Dog events for their summer reading programs, starting at noon on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Call the library at 970-453-3544 to reserve a spot or stop by the front desk.
