Join us this Saturday, July 19th for Komotion!  

Join Rich Kuperberg as he portrays “Clown Red,” using juggling, clowning, pantomime and music for this year’s theme of “Fizz! Boom! Read!” (It’s about a clown in a parade with an umbrella. He gets stuck and is left behind. He has to extricate himself in order to move on. To help him, the clown turns to a book titled “How To,” an appropriate action for a lesson about summer reading).
