Enjoy amazing BubbleMania show performances by “Bubble-ologist” Casey Carle. The perfect blend of comedy, art and science, BubbleMania is a show like no other! Casey Carle is a former professionally trained Ringling Bros. Clown, who was looking for something that hadn’t been done before. Over twenty years, and thousands of shows later, Casey has traveled internationally performing with bubbles as festivals, science museums, theaters, private engagements and on television. Casey combines polished entertainment with high quality visual art and practical, easily understood science. All ages can learn how bubbles form, why they're spherical, how to make a cube bubble and the science of bubble bursting - each topic related to the physical laws of the natural world. Older audience members learn to appreciate practical applications of diverse bubbles in everyday life (soccer balls to air bags) and are actively involved in fun demonstrations of molecular bonding and surface tension. Carle has performed in front of crowds of 50 to 1,000 people, and he loves it. "My work with bubbles reminds people that there is a great deal of joy in the simple things of life. My show emphasizes relatively simple tools to do amazing manipulations, from intricate sculptures to giant floating spheres. Bubbles are an inexpensive way to simplify complicated lives, people are reminded that we don't need all this material 'stuff' to make the day interesting," he says. He doesn't consider his work as changing the whole world, but rather the outlook of those who witness his show. "I am constantly reminded that I am opening up eyes to a wonder they didn't know possible. I use lots of humor to engage the audience, which adds to the positive experience."

BubbleMaina shows will be held at 11:30 a.m., 1 and 3 p.m. during BubbleFest. For more info on Caseyor his show visit www.bubblemania.com.
