A long time ago, in a land far, far away there was once a group of daring acrobats. Well, at least since 2015 and far, far away being relative; but the group of acrobats does exist! Enter Toil & Tumble, a high flying, death defying insurance trying duo.
When Tumble, a professionally trained thespian, came across Toil, a bright eyed dancer, it was incredibly dangerous stunts with no mats at first sight. With their powers combined T&T began their plan of world dominati... Ahem, not that plan. Forget about that plan. Where was I? Oh yes: their plan of creating one of the most comically dynamic shows from the Twin Cities!
Toil & Tumble came out of the gate with more than 30 years of combined performance experience, beginning their long trek to fame and fortune (please let there be fortune) at the MN Renaissance Festival under the blistering sun or freezing snow; because Minnesota. They have since expanded their repertoire to include variety shows, private parties, nightclubs, convention performances. To date Toil & Tumble has generated 10,748 laughs, 7,393 guffaws, 2,139 dreamy eyes and one chick who laughed so hard she farted... but who are we to judge; just spend a weekend performing with Apple!
wHen ToiL MEt TuMbLE...
Spencer has been performing since he was five years old, when he held the parents of his mother's
day care children hostage until they watched his one man performance of Robin Hood. It was terrible.
Since then Spencer has performed in hundreds of stage shows and films. He achieved a Bachelor of
the Arts in Theater Arts from the University of Minnesota Twin Cities campus with an emphasis in
physical performance. He's the co founder of multiple acrobatic troupes including Toil & Tumble.
While exploring all aspects of physical performance Spencer studied clowning and stage combat
to name a few areas or expertise. It was a lot of study, like A LOT of study. Ask him about waving
goodbye at the dock sometime.
Spencer is an avid reader and enjoys moderate to long walks on the beach. He is well known for
his quick wit, although his friends will flatly deny it so don't ask them, and loves nothing more than
a good pun.

It all started with a pair of soft toe ballet shoes, an accidental fall, and a small child pulling them
off and storming out of the room, tutu wafting in the wind, never to be seen on Barre again. It's a
true story, google it...
But that's where Stayce's love of performance began, banged head and all. When technical dance
didn't agree with her she sought out other forms, eventually, though stubbornly, learning the basics
after the alternatives. With a strong background in Gymnastics, Hip-Hop, and Circus Arts, she's
performed with national competitive dance squads and an internationally recognized performing
Although never 'properly' trained, Stayce has over 12 years of stage experience, fearlessly
performed before thousands and a deep love for the thrill of live theater. Her charisma is unmatched.
Looking the best dressed is only natural with her Bachelors of Science Degree in Apparel Design.
Armed with an unstoppable creative right side, she designs all of Toil & Tumble's costumes, graphics, performance themes, and even facial expressions...
She is currently on a passionate quest to master the aerial arts!
