EVENT: University of Rochester's Strong Jugglers Are 'On Fire' Again

March 24, 2004

The Strong Jugglers, a student club at the University of Rochester, will present their sixth annual show starting at 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 1, in Strong Auditorium on the University of Rochester's River Campus

Titled "Strong Jugglers on Fire Again," the program will feature fire stunts for only the second time in the group's history, with the students juggling fire torches and eating fire. The show will also include a mix of comedy; juggling acts with balls, clubs, and knives; shoulder stunts; and balancing acts.

Formed in 1993, the Strong Jugglers perform at a variety of events on campus throughout the year, including the traditional Boar's Head Dinner in winter, the Rush Rhees Library Scare Fair at Halloween, and Meliora Weekend, an annual celebration combining reunions, homecoming, and parents' weekend. Group members also volunteer an hour each week teaching juggling at the Mary Cariola Children's Center.

Advance tickets to "Strong Jugglers on Fire Again" are $3 and can be purchased at the Common Market in Wilson Commons on the River Campus. Tickets will also be available at the door for $4. For more information, contact (585) 275-5911.
