Local students enjoy recent entertainment

RANDOLPH — Randolph Public School students recently had an entertainer give a presentation in the Lyle Nannen Memorial Gymnasium.

Curtis Carlyle brought his comedy and juggling show for a presentation for students of all ages — kindergarteners to seniors.

Carlyle, a native of Portland, Ore., had a very entertaining show for the students. It was filled with comedy and juggling acts. His 45-minute show included audience participation, also.

To begin the show, Carlyle opened with a yo-yo trick, and proceeded to using two super yo-yos. His act included a music selection, Final Countdown, played by the RHS Pep Band.

His show continued with juggling tennis balls, water bottles, and rings. He also performed a trick by drinking water without using his hands. The students were amazed when the comedian and trickster twisted and turned a tennis racket from his head to his toes around his body.

The 45-minute presentation contained many jokes for all age levels. Throughout some of his juggling acts, he asked for audience participation. Elementary student Tom Korth and high school student Morgan Polenske were able to assist in his acts.

The students, faculty, and staff all enjoyed the entertainment provided by Oregon native, Curtis Carlyle.
