Flying Karamazov Brothers Land In Maryville Thursday (VIDEO)

The Flying Karamazov Brothers are not your father’s wild-haired, juggling, flame-throwing, kilt-and-tutu-wearing performers.

But they’ve played them on TV. They have appeared on television shows including “Late Show with David Letterman,” “Seinfeld,” “Ellen,” “The Tonight Show,” “Today” and “Good Morning America.”

This week they’ll perform in Maryville.

Northwest Missouri State University’s 2011-2012 Encore performance series comes to a close this week with a Flying Karamazov Brothers performance at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, April 12, in the Mary Linn Auditorium at the Ron Houston Center for the Performing Arts.

The audience is invited to bring objects to the theater for the Flying Karamazov Brothers to keep airborne in a challenge that ends either with a pie in the face or a standing ovation.

Tickets range from $13 to $25. Additionally, Northwest is giving away one free child/student ticket to the show (a $15 value) with the purchase of an adult orchestra ticket between Tuesday, April 10, and Thursday, April 12.

Tickets may be purchased in person at the Student Services Center located on the first floor of the Administration Building or by calling 660.562.1212. Tickets may be purchased with a Bearcat Card.

“I am very excited to be ending the series with such an interactive, high energy and high excitement show,” Director of Campus Activities Angel McAdams Prescott said. “It is very family-friendly show and The Flying Karamazov Brothers are entertainers, so this is not the typical Encore show.”
