Local children, teenagers, teachers, and parents enjoyed Columbus Day off by attending The Electric Company Circuit Tour at the Rent One Ballpark in Marion, Ill. on October 12, 2009. The Circuit Tour was a free, 90-minute multimedia experience for children ages 6 through 9. Families, siblings, and students of other ages were invited to experience the event, as well. The live show directed kids into a world where reading is hip and where play and respect are hard-wired into their vocabulary and self-expression. Children spent the day with The Electric Company's very own beat box artist, Chris Sullivan, also known as Shock. InFocus speaks with Sullivan about his role on tour and how this event is beneficial to the educational development of children.
