Kids in the Rotunda – January 22

Overture Center’s Kids in the Rotunda is a series of free artistic programs designed for children and families which runs from the last weekend in September through April. This popular performing arts series on the Rotunda Stage offers a relaxed, kid-friendly environment in which to enjoy a diverse lineup of local and regional musicians, storytellers, jugglers, theater troupes, magicians and dancers. The programs run every Saturday at 9:30 am, 11 am and 1 pm (each performance lasts around 45 minutes). The 1 pm performances are sign language interpreted.

This week’s performer is Mark Hayward (yo-yo tricks & juggling)

He’s a world yo-yo champion. He’s a spin-top champion. He’s a member of the world juggling team and even founded Madison’s Annual Juggling Festival, MadFest. David Letterman calls Mark Hayward‘s tricks “a thing of beauty.” A self-proclaimed cool guy, Mark’s Madison-mom claims, “he’s the best!” But don’t take her word for it. Bring your family to the Rotunda Stage for a first-hand experience of exciting stunts and high-energy mastery with Mark Hayward!
