Oct 6 @ 11 AM: Tom Noddy and his Amazing Bubble Magic!
Tom kicks off this series with his exuberant one-of-a-kind delights! He has performed on four continents, bringing his unique magic of bubbles to people of all ages. Years of street and festival performing brought him to Johnny Carson's Tonight Show which led to more television shows, theaters, festivals and science centers throughout the world. When Johnny Carson saw it he said, on air, "He's doing something unlike anything we've ever seen." Tom still lives in Santa Cruz and travels extensively, bringing this beautiful art form with him as he watches our changing world through the film of soap bubbles.
