 The 21st holiday season of the Townsend Center for the Performing Arts will begin on Friday, December 11, with the annual Rudolph to the Rescue Toy Drive reception and International Juggling Champion and Comedian of the Year Mark Nizer. The Rudolph to the Rescue reception begins at 6:30 p.m. and features refreshments, holiday music and a trip to Toy Land in the Dangle Theatre. An unwrapped toy is the ticket to the catered affair.

Creating new ways to delight and entertain his audiences is at the heart of Nizer’s mission. Audiences can don 3D glasses to see the inventions of new juggling tricks and technologies. His unique wit and sense of fun has set the performer apart from his peers in venues around the world including The Improv, The Comedy Store, Walt Disney World, universities and major cruise lines.

Holiday show tickets for Mark Nizer 3D are $18 for adults, $15 for seniors and $10 for children. A season ticket package is available and offers significant discounts for three or more shows with the best seats in the house.

The Townsend Center Box Office is open Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and one hour before show times. Call 678-839-4722 or go to http://www.townsendcenter.org for information on the 2009-2010 season, educational outreach programs at the TCPA and directions to the theatre.
