Circo Comedia, the first show of the Batavia Fine Arts Centre touring series, will perform at 7:30 p.m. Friday, July 6. Tickets are now on sale.
Circo Comedia has unpredictable thrills, comedy and daredevil stunts are the signature style of this fantastic duo from Montreal. Circo Comedia was conceived in the autumn of 1998 to perform a distinctive style of humor, acrobatic tricks, daring feats, magic and eccentricity. Following in the tradition of the Quebec Circus, Jean Saucier, a master equilibrist, juggler, trick cyclist, acrobat and magician, performs his feats from dizzying heights while Patrick Cote, a burlesque clown, expert roller skater and drummer, innocently tries his best to be the imperfect assistant.

Asner, recipient of seven Emmy Awards ("Mary Tyler Moore Show," "Lou Grant") and 16 nominations, five Golden Globe Awards, and member of the TV Academy Hall of Fame, will star in the solo performance drama, "FDR" based upon Dore Schary's Broadway hit "Sunrise at Campobello," which ran 70 weeks on Broadway. "FDR" explores the life of one of America's best-loved presidents and the events and decisions that shaped a nation. This powerful play follows the iconic president as he reflects on his years in office, from inauguration to the trials of World War II.
Backed by a soaring orchestral score, a cast of award-winning dancers and singers travels seamlessly over decades of styles from Broadway and big band to world music and pop/rock in "Tap" on Oct. 13. Batavia native Nicholas Brooks will perform Oct. 20. Brooks has been performing in Las Vegas and around the world for the better part of a decade.

The International Tenors will perform Feb. 2, 2013. Enjoy the melodious sounds of the International Tenors as they perform opera, musical theater, operetta and pop.
