A SOPHISTICATED, FAMILY-FRIENDLY, POCKET-SIZED
THEATRICAL CLOWN CIRCUS!
These charming VINTAGE clowns play circus ANIMALS, sing as a HUMAN CALLIOPE, do the classic circus MIRROR ROUTINE, invent a number of RIDICULOUS "entrées", perform LIVE MUSIC, and execute a very satisfying SLOW MOTION number involving a PIE!
PREPOSTEROUS! premiered in the summer of 2017 at the Smithsonian Folklife Festival and has been performed at The National Theater as part of their Saturday Morning family series. In the summer of 2019 it toured to a variety of venues in New York and New England including the Waterfront Museum, Camden Opera House, Stonington Opera House, Celebration Barn and Bread & Puppet. We are ready to hit the road again! Just like the real circus.
