THOM WALL, Master of Modern Vaudeville

Saturday, December 18 at 7:00 PM

Multi-award-winning Cirque du Soleil juggler Thom Wall—the Master of Modern Vaudeville—wows audiences worldwide. A dazzling performer, he surprises audiences with nearly impossible tricks using household objects. Get ready to gasp at knife juggling, rat trap acrobatics, highly breakable balancing acts, and other feats of danger!

Thom’s unparalleled variety show combines sophisticated Vaudeville revival acts with spectacular juggling technique. He’s shared the stage with the Rockettes at the Radio City Music Hall, performed for diplomats and dignitaries at the Smithsonian Institution, and juggled for thousands on stages and in circus tents around the world…but it’s all been practice for the day he gets to perform for you!
