JuggleMania's "Hilarity and Dexterity” has appeared to laughter and applause on cruise ships in the Mediterranean, festivals in Asia and on theater stages from Trinidad to Egypt. Raised in rural Oregon, JuggleMania’s Rhys Thomas never guessed his backyard circus hobby would allow him to visit over 30 countries and raise a family on the strength of his shenanigans.

Rose City Circus
serves up amazing acrobatics with flash, comedy, and modern attitude. Appearing prime time on ABC’s Gong Show with Mike Meyers they won the competition with a perfect score from the judges. Get there early they will draw the big crowds!
The 75 foot big loop, crazy rhythm whip cracking, hilarious audience participation, spoken and physical comedy, that's the Leapin' Louie show, an original cowboy show full of comedy, world-class trick roping and whip-cracking. An Oregon Favorite, Leapin’ Louie has performed his cowboy comedy in 34 nations around the world.
“Lichtenstein, a multitalented performer, has to be seen to be believed.”
_ Portland Oregonian
"It's the Wild West lasso-wielding clown Leapin' Louie Lichtenstein who is freaking amazing. The crowd lost it after every one of his acts—from the 20-foot diameter lasso he swung overhead while riding a super-tall unicycle, to the bullwhip he cracked at the front row’s faces. — I'd see this guy perform again in a heartbeat.” —Portland Mercury
Rudi Galindo –Teatro Pachuco
combines the elements of silent film and European clown and distills it with the passion of the Mexican American culture. The result is a unique style of physical theater that has entertained more than a million smiling faces on four continents. Based in Brussels, Belgium Rudi was the Winner of the Grand Prix at the Gent International Street Theater Festival and Silver Medalist at the La Merce Festival in Barcelona for JUST PASSING THRU. Jury Prize winner at the Usedom International Street Theater Festival for the Saxophone Man.
Daredevil acrobatics, superhuman strength, and family-friendly comedy! Supernova, aka Tera Zarra, is a crazy character and the strongest woman you will probably ever see. She will bend frying pans, tear phone books in half, and do a handstand routine on a hoverboard!
Stefano Iobani was born and raised in Rome, Italy. He graduated from a professional circus school in Holland and gained experience in traditional circus arts. Stefano then set off for Barcelona, Spain where he spent the next ten years working for theater companies, acting in movies and commercials, and participating in comedy festivals. He has appeared at many of the top street theater festivals around the world.
Stefano currently lives in Portland where I produced a monthly variety show called "Follies: The Unofficially Best Ever Variety Show", before the pandemic and I’m the Physical Comedy coach at The Circus Project
