Interupting brumation urge?

Hello all! My graybanded male has decided to bruminate early this year (it's the weather here) and has only eaten 1 mouse in the last 5 weeks (and hasn't eaten anything in the last 3 weeks). He's a pet, not needing the sleep for breeding season. My daughter and I take him to education outreach shows, which he seems to enjoy (he never hides while we're there, and doesn't want to go back in her tank for a breather while there). He's just an extremely handable, good snake (which is why he's my daughter's now).
My question is: we have a education show this Saturday, and my daughter wants to show him. Is it okay for him if we interupt his self-inflicted brumination? If so, do you think he might be too "grumpy" to enjoy the show as usual, and be a good sport about all the touching? I plan (if everyone says it son't harm him) to take him out between now and Saturday a couple times to handle him and judge his temperment about it, but thought asking for advice couldn't hurt! :)
