The Big Show! In Honor of Mary Langham
Thursday, July 4 - 8:00PM at the SPARC
The big finale to a week of fabulous events in Homer, the New Old Time Chautauqua will knock yer socks off with this vaudeville extravaganza. After plentiful projects, performances, and community service, this show is the final stop of a month-long tour in honor of Mary Langham, who was a vital part of the Homer theater and arts scene for the last 15 years of her life. The tour includes 60 performers, musicians, coos, potato peelers, bus drivers, and educators - all volunteers - including 10 members of Mary's family.
Join us “under the big top” at the SPARC! This evening performance offers entertainment and delight for the whole family after Homer’s 4th of July Parade. The show will include juggling, acrobatics, dancing, aerials, magic, mime, live music, and more - and will feature locally and internationally-acclaimed talent.
The Flying Karamazov Brothers will wow you with their hilarious juggling and cheap theatrics; the Langham family will clown from the heart; local vaudevillian Fiona Rose will charm you with her potent lyricism and twinkle toes hula hooper extraordinaire Vanessa Vortex will impress you with her coordination and grace; Phina and Sophie Pipia perform a hilarious tandem sister act on their sousaphones. Throughout the show, enjoy the rousing live music and zany wisecracks by the Fighting Instruments of Karma Marching Chamber Band/Orchestra, who play music ranging from marches and sambas to New Orleans jazz.
