Jugglers benefit boy with cancer

Tahoe Daily Tribune

The Tahoe Jugglers are planning a three-day benefit show to raise money to assist with medical expenses for 3-year-old Bailey Johnson. The young boy, who was diagnosed with cancer two years ago, has undergone extensive treatment. He is the son of Ron and Kelly Johnson and the grandson of Tim and Christy Smith, former Zephyr Cove residents.

“Start the Commotion” will be presented from 7 to 8:30 p.m. May 29, 30 and 31 at the South Tahoe High School Little Theater. The event is sponsored by the South Tahoe High School Associated Student Body.

The Tahoe Jugglers are Chris Smith, Mike Callian and Nick Smith, who entertain with juggling, comedy, skits, improvisation and audience participation. They will be assisted by a supporting cast and technical crew that includes Mike Tsang, Sean Pawling, Andrew Wysong, Erika Shimmel, Matt Alt, Tyler Venema, a seven-piece band, and Will Goldenberg, who will video tape the show. Participants are students at South Tahoe High School, South Tahoe Middle School and St. Theresa School.

Tickets for the fund-raiser are $10 general admission, $6 for students and free for children 5 years of age and younger. They may be purchased in advance at the South Lake Tahoe Chamber of Commerce and by calling Chris Smith at (530) 541-6826. They also will be available at the door before each performance.

All proceeds will benefit the Bailey Johnson Cancer Fund established through Colonial Bank on Kingsbury Grade, where donations may be sent at any time.
