Spoon Man – June 5
Come and get “SPOONED” at the Prescott/Nevada County Library.
The “SPOON MAN” is a Published Author who offers a hilarious interactive comedy program for all ages. He gives a real stirring performance. Everyone will really eat him up. No bibs required. The “SPOON MAN” has a totally clean act. He never uses dirty silverware. The “SPOON MAN” will leave a lasting impression after playing on you (literally). It’s a spoonful of family fun.
Thank you for a very positive experience by teaching rhythm and body movements to build kids confidence.
