Tommy Bartlett Show


ARRR…you ready for a swashbuckling good time at the Tommy Bartlett Show in 2008! The show kicks off its 56th season May 23 with a pirate-themed extravaganza. From the time you enter the parking lot, to the conclusion of the 90-minute live performance, you will be treated to an adventure on the high seas with the Pirates of Bartlett Bay.

The voyage begins as you enter the main gate, which will be decked out in full pirate regalia. Once ushered into a mooring spot, you disembark your individual craft and prepare to set sail on a new adventure with Bartlett’s buccaneers. All around, treasure chests overflow with glittering jewels and our friendly pirate crew welcomes you aboard as the giant Jolly Roger flag waves in the wind. Rigging, pennants and other pirate paraphernalia set the stage as you become entranced in the mystery of this great pirate adventure.

Pirates of Bartlett Bay begins on the water as our daredevil buccaneers challenge fate with death-defying stunts by boat and on skis. With their high-powered boats, fast-paced trick skiing, flips, twists and pyramids, Bartlett’s buccaneers will show you who rules the high seas. Be sure to show your appreciation with a little hand clapping or you may be forced to walk the plank!

As we make port, our show continues on land with more swashbuckling fun. New to the stage lineup this year, the Nerveless Nocks dazzle you with the “Wheel of Destiny.” Forget the safety harnesses or nets, watch as these scallywags balance and do tricks freestyle on the rotating double wheel as it swings end over end. Among these high-flying daredevils is Cyrus Nock, who at only 10 years old is one of the youngest thrill performers in the world.

Dangling from the Aerial Sky Ring high above the stage and with no net below, Carolina Nock will captivate you with nervous anticipation. Carolina’s beauty and grace makes this Cirque-style aerial act look effortless. With only the circular trapeze as a lifeline, she performs amazing acrobatic twists and turns that will take your breath away and make you wonder “how does she do that?” Her daughter Angelina joins the act with a dazzling display of hula hoop artistry, twirling a multitude of colorful hoops at once in a rhythmic skill that will make your head spin. Two graceful entertainers, two generations of the marvelous Nock family performers together on the Tommy Bartlett stage

Rounding out the stage acts is T.J. Howell who mixes his lighthearted humor with skillful juggling and unicycle riding. T.J.’s two young mates – Hunter and Carson – get in on the act. At eight and five years old these two young pirates perform unicycling tricks and get away with the biggest treasures of all – big laughs and big applause.

Of course every nighttime performance of the Tommy Bartlett Show ends with a bang. The pirate cannons will explode with thunder as the night sky lights up with fireworks and a state-of-the-art, full-color laser-light show combined with a mix of music, color graphics and Entrancing Water fountains.
