The Splash Test Dummies

As part of the Summer at The Art House program

Rub-a-dub-dub, The Dummies are here with some splish splashing circus set to drown you in tears of laughter.

The Splash Test Dummies are off on an exciting adventure of oceanic proportions! With a brilliant array of catch-your-breath stunt work, dazzling acrobatics, dexterous juggling and side-splitting, slapstick comedy, the Dummies are ready to roll out their beach towels and spring into an exciting hour of circus-filled hilarity for the whole family.

Grab your flippers and snorkel and join the Dummies diving from bathtubs to beaches on this wild aquatic ride!
