“The globe walker was excellent for meeting people as they arrived. He was the first person many people saw and seeing someone up on that sphere juggling a ball on a spinning parasol served as the perfect visual to let guests know they were in for something special and unique.” – 2014 40th Birthday Party at The Cellar Door

“The Actors Gymnasium provided unique, interactive entertainment for a local business awards ceremony. A magician, stilt walker and globe walker each offered a fun and entertaining experience for our guests. We would happily book The Actors Gymnasium again knowing we’ll receive high-quality entertainment for our guests. One fun tip – there’s nothing like a selfie with a stilt walker.” – Heather Warthen, 22nd Century Media Chief Operations Officer and Chief Events Officer
