Jeff Boyer takes bubbles to the max in this one-man extravaganza. It’s the craziest, most creative bubble show around. Jeff juggles, sculpts, and builds with bubbles, makes fog-filled bubbles and more…he even puts a child in a bubble. This show will engage and delight audiences of all ages.

Beauty and the Beast
Thursday, August 2, 11:00AM* and 1:30PM

Based on the original story by Madame Leprince De Beaumont, this production has all the magic and mystery that we have come to expect from this charming tale plus some new characters that add to the fun on stage.

To find the true love and heart of the Beast, the Beauty must see through his outward appearance. This story is presented by the Paper Moon Puppet Theatre of New Jersey.

*Sensory-Friendly performances are theater experiences in which the environment and typical “rules of attendance” have been relaxed to accommodate individuals with autism and other developmental disabilities and the families and professionals who support them.
