Sean Shug Emery Weston WI Boy scouts programOn Tuesday, January 17, 2012, you can catch entertainer, juggler and comedian “Sean ‘Shug’ Emery  as he performs his show, titled: Gift of the Woods”. Born in Ireland, Emery is known as the world’s tallest leprechaun. He grew up under the Big Top of Ringling Bros., Barnum and Bailey and he honed his skills in the streets and on the stages of New York City.

This show is a benefit for the Samoset Council Boy Scouts of America and will surely hold the attention of anyone interested in the outdoors, camping, backpacking or hiking. The show is at the DC Everest Middle School, starting at 6:30pm. Tickets are $10 each.

Sean is also a seasoned and avid backpacker, hiker and camper. He has published a large number of YouTube videos that feature everything from highlights of trails that he has backpacked, to gear reviews, to basic how-to videos to help answer the new outdoors man’s questions. Sean first developed his love of the outdoors as a Boy Scout and has continued with that spirit his entire life. You won’t find a better person to inspire young people to get out in the woods. Youth and families will have a great time watching Sean Emery on stage. His message of the woods being a gift that we should cherish and share will encourage everyone to get out and enjoy nature.

The event will be held at the DC Everest Middle School Theater. The show starts at 6:30 pm on Tuesday night, Jan 17. The start of the show will be a presentation from the Boy Scout of America, Samoset Council. After that we get to spend an hour with Sean ‘Shug’ Emery. He will be telling tales of his outdoor experiences mixed with his entertaining act of juggling, unicycle stunts and comedy. It should be very funny. After the show Sean will sit down with any scouts that attend to answer questions about his experiences and his life.

Plus after the show, any Scout that shows up in uniform will be eligible to enter to drawing for over a $1000 worth of camping gear that will be given away. Any scout that shows up to the show in uniform will be eligible to win.
