Bucky & GiGi have been entertaining children and their families since, well, almost before the air guitar was even invented. In 2018 Bucky & GiGi of Cirque du Jour present "Cruisin' Into Comedy" for the Summer Reading Program. This hilarious duo spent over a decade perfecting their craft with The Greatest Show On Earth. Their unique style combines circus skills, physical comedy, dance, mime, juggling, magic and more for children of all ages. You'll even see the world's smallest harmonica played by GiGi! And families will be thrilled to see their performing canine; Zeus! He's back in action with a musical piece that will delight both young and young at heart!

Registration is not required for any of our special event programs and are open to all ages.
