HAMDEN'S 2019-2020 SATURDAY PROGRAMS FOR CHILDREN & FAMILIES INCLUDE SENSORY-FRIENDLY PERFORMANCES, JAPANESE DRUMS, COMEDIC JUGGLING, AN INDOOR SNOWSTORM AND MORE! HAMDEN, CT - The Hamden Arts Commission will present an all-new cavalcade of talent in its 2019-2020 Saturday Afternoon Family Entertainment Series. The series, which offers an exciting array of programs for adults and children to share, will showcase a variety of homegrown CT and visiting artists including a sensory-friendly and interactive musical performance, a visit by Jack Frost himself, comedic juggling, and more! All shows take place at the handicapped accessible Thornton Wilder Hall in the Miller Cultural Complex, 2901 Dixwell Avenue, Hamden, 06518. All shows start at 1 pm except on November 16th, in which there will be two performances: the first at 10am and the second at 11:30am. Tickets are $2 for children, $3 for adults, available at the door only and cash only. Doors open at 12:30pm.
On January 11th, 2020, at 1pm, SMIRK Comedic Juggling will ring in the New Year with an all-ages, new vaudeville show combining unbelievable juggling sequences with comedic banter, lively music and audience interaction! With the flavor of a dynamic Abbott and Costello-style relationship, SMIRK is an exhilarating roller coaster ride into the lives of two performers whose comedy derives from the collision of two very different minds trying to perform in the same show. One is a former scientist, and the other, a slapstick madman. Juggling, whip cracking, unicycles and a large rocket launcher all make an appearance in this Odd Couple meets the circus spectacular.
