The next Evan's Family Variety Show should be phenomenal, with three FANTASTIC acts and a special guest! First is Nickolai Pirak. He is a juggler Evan does corporate shows with - and that we managed to get him to come to this show has us delighted. We can't WAIT for the kids to see what this guy can do! Ruben Barron is a magician - one Evan first saw when he worked a comedy club. He'd brilliant, funny, and a great guy. We have a special guest - two younger students who are working on a routine. This should be interesting and hopefully will usher in a normal process of having student guests. And finally - and ENTIRE MARCHING CORP is coming! These guys are talented and FUN - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MOLpVCQ6Tkc And should really give our kids one HECK of an experience! (And we'll be doing noise tests before the show - if they are too loud we'll go outside to see them!) We are REALLY excited about this show - it should be a fantastic show for adults, and one HECK of an experience for the kids! Get tickets here: http://www.showclix.com/event/EvansFamilyVarietyShow3
