RUMFORD -- AudioBody will be performing their amazing, unique show at 7 p.m. Thursday at Mountain Valley High School.
Western Foothills Kids Association is pleased to be able to bring these internationally renowned performers here, especially since they are orignally from our RSU #10 community.
AudioBody is a thrilling, high-tech, comedy show that features an explosive mix of sibling rivalry, technological mishaps, relentless comedy, full-body contortion, juggling, LED light shows, and up-beat music! It is the synthesis of music, comedy, and technology.
They have created an arsenal of audio-visual inventions, including wearable electronic jumpsuits that play music as they move, LED light tubes that are manipulated at high speeds in the dark, a 16-foot wide electronic drum-set, fluorescent light ropes that form the shapes of sound waves, and countless other unique performance gadgets.
The members of AudioBody, brothers Matthew and Jason Tardy, started their performing career in 1994 as young teenagers in Buckfield where they presented some sketch comedy at a local community talent show. They were seen by local physical comedian Michael Miclon, who noticed their natural rapport with the audience and invited them to apprentice and tour with him.
The apprenticeship opened many doors, including The White House three times, CBS Sunday Morning, The Early Show, Inside Edition, and David Letterman. They perform regularly at thei new Theater of Awesome in Freeport where they have been voted as the #1 Thing to Do in Freeport- even beating out the iconic LL Beans for that honor!
Tickets can be purchased ahead by calling 357-6987 or purchased at the office at Rumford Elementary School. They are $6/student $8/ adult if purchased ahead or at the door for $8/student $10/adult. This is a great opportunity for all ages to enjoy a completely unique show.
