BUCKFIELD — Juggling wizard Michael Menes and funny-man juggler Greg Frisbee will present “Vice-Versa,” a family show jampacked with craziness, on Saturday, Oct. 23, at Oddfellow Theater.

There will be juggling knives, a straightjacket escape, a man scurrying about with four legs and virtuoso juggling acts that took years to perfect.

Menes and Frisbee first shared the stage at an international clown festival in Liuzhou, China, in 2007. Since then, they have toured together on stages throughout the United States with the theatrical troupe Cirque Voila!.

Frisbee grew up in a small town in Massachusetts and has been performing his unique brand of comedy since 1994. His beginnings in street theater in Boston have progressed to performing at some of the biggest festivals and events around the globe.

In 2001, Frisbee relocated to San Francisco to focus on his performances and training, and to work on his craft full time. To date, he has performed in 49 of the 50 United States and has appeared in 15 countries.

Menes makes his home in Oxford County, but performs all over the world. He has appeared with Cirque du Soleil, Cirque Voila! and Cirque Ingenieux; at corporate events for dozens of Fortune 500 companies; for more than a dozen luxury cruise lines; on television specials around the world; and in performing arts centers as distinguished as the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., and the Shanghai Performing Arts Center in Shanghai, China. His show features juggling, funny illusions, inventive physical comedy and creative special effects.

The show will begin at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $14 for adults, $12 for seniors and $8 for children 12 and younger.
