Kazoos on Vacation with Rick Hubbard in Beaufort: Family concerts in ARTworks’ theater July 27, August 3, August 10 at 7:30 p.m. Rick Hubbard the Kazoo Guy will perform his wonders on stage at ARTworks this summer. For a wallop of family fun, admission is Pay What You Can ($5 minimum) and kids under 6 years old are free. Rick Hubbard’s hit family show of Music, Comedy, and Fun is where your kids are the stars and the kazoos are free — because we’re on vacation while the bubble canon works overtime. Rick Hubbard celebrates more than a decade of providing positive family entertainment throughout the United States, and every moment has been KAZOOBIE! Rick invented the word, “kazoobie,” to describe his performance. It means “exceptional, fun, and involving everyone.” Audience involvement is the key, and no entertainer in America gets more audience members into the show than Rick Hubbard. ARTworks is the community arts center of Beaufort and is located at 2127 Boundary Street 29902, in Beaufort Town Center. For more, visit www.ArtWorksInBeaufort.org or call 843-379-2787.
