GARDINER — The Tardy Brothers will perform their high energy juggling show at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, May 2, at Johnson Hall.

Tardy Brothers is made up of brothers, Jason and Matthew Tardy. Their performing career started as teenagers in Maine when they presented some sketch comedy at a local community talent show. They were seen by Michael Miclon, The Stand-Up Juggler, who noticed their natural rapport with the audience, and encouraged them to develop their talent. Not long after that the brothers accepted an invitation to apprentice and tour with Michael Miclon.

The apprenticeship opened other doors including the opportunity to train with world renowned jugglers Michael Menes and Peter Davison and Mime Master Tony Montanaro. The brother’s naturally competitive spirit mixed with good-natured sibling rivalry rocketed their juggling skills to dramatic heights in a short period of time. Keeping the act “in the family” has also benefited them in other ways. They seem to have an uncanny ability to anticipate each other’s moves on stage, which serves them well as they perform their synchronized duet routines.

Tickets cost $16 for adults, $14 for seniors, $5 for children.
