Join master juggler and performer Nels Ross in his presentation of “The Greatest Show on Mirth.” Ross will perform a fun-for-all-ages show that conveys the value of laughter and play while showing how everyone can make the world a better place.
After attending his first performing arts workshop when he was eight years old, Nels went on to study physical comedy, juggling, acting, and other arts, applying his talents everywhere from street festivals to theatrical productions. 
Nels studied theater at the University at Buffalo, completed degrees in mathematics and education, toured with a non-profit circus, trained with instructors from Ringling Brothers and Cirque du Soleil, written for Juggle magazine, taught many performing arts courses and workshops, and has provided shows and presentations for countless schools, companies, organizations, and events.
