Al Simmons & NANDA Return!

Two festival favorites will return to share their unique brands of entertainment with us this year.

Al Simmons is a man dedicated to the all but lost art of combining comedy with song, dance, magic, sight gags and, of course, bad puns. His costume-and-prop routines have often been the most popular and talked about act in theatres, concert halls, and at folk, children's and other festivals across North America. The Globe & Mail praises "His act, at once frenetic and engagingly simple, is a tour-de-force of ingenious, charming silliness."
We can't wait to see what he has in store for us this year! For more info on Al visit his website.
UPDATE 1/18: Unfortunately, due to scheduling conflicts, Al can't make this year's festival but will be blocking out some time in 2012.

NANDA's "Acrobaticalism" is a calculated chaos of dancing, juggling, music, acrobatics, and high energy kung-faux fighting. The show is all at once exuberantly innovative and widely appealing to audiences of all ages. NANDA defies convention and categorization by working within a limitless scope of imagination.
These artists’ unique blend of skill acts and hilarious antics will reward again and again with their innovative approach to pure entertainment. Check out their website for more!
