The Flying Karamazov Brothers kick off 2011-12 season at the Hylton Performing Arts Center

The Flying Karamazov Brothers kick off 2011-12 season at the Hylton Performing Arts Center

They aren’t Russian. They aren’t brothers. They certainly don’t fly. Misnomers aside, this zany foursome presents an unforgettable spectacle of music, comedy, dance, theater and juggling – everything from bowling balls and chainsaws – with a bit of philosophy thrown in for good measure. The Flying Karamazov Brothers appears at the Hylton Performing Arts Center in Manassas on Saturday, Sept. 17, 2011 at 8 p.m. This performance is family friendly, and tickets are half price for youth through grade 12. A pre-performance discussion will be held one hour prior to the performance in the Hylton Center’s Buchanan Partners Art Gallery. Novant Health is the 2011-12 Season Sponsor of Hylton Presents at the Hylton Performing Arts Center.
