Set your evening on fire with the Strong Jugglers, who are performing their third annual spring show in Strong Auditorium at 8 p.m. tonight.
The show, titled ?Strong Jugglers on Fire,? will feature approximately 10 of the organization?s 20 members, who plan to astound the crowd with such feats as throwing knives, juggling torches and breathing fire.
?At one point we?re planning on lighting different parts of one of our jugglers on fire,? senior and president Mike Marisa said. ?Besides fire flying through the air, there will also be our more traditional juggling props including balls, clubs and machetes.?
The Strong Jugglers were formed in 1993 and they currently demonstrate juggling, clowning and sleight-of-hand tricks to their audiences. They they perform at numerous campus events, including the annual Boar?s Head Dinner, Yellowjacket Day and freshman orientation. The Strong Jugglers also perform at many informal shows for UR students on the steps of Wilson Commons.
?This the only all-juggler, full-length performance that we do during the year, so people should come,?Marisa said.
The Rochester Fire Department will be on hand tonight just in case the fire demonstration gets out of hand.
Tickets for ?Strong Jugglers on Fire? are on sale at the Common Market in Wilson Commons for $3.
They will also be on sale for $4 at the door this evening.
