Waterford Youth Arts take the show on the road
Family fun circus shenanigans coming to a playground near you!
Mrs. Montgomery’s Tale of the Travelling Circus with Waterford Youth Arts.
Mrs Montgomery and her Travelling Circus of wonders, wow-ser’s, pow-ser’s, twirlers, tricksters, magic makers, clowning abouter’s, dancers, delighters, ponder-thoughter’s, flipper flappers, thinker-thanker’s, wandering wonder’s, magical humans, have seen every single land in the entire world for over two thousand, five hundred years, eleven months, twenty three days, and seven hours.
They have gathered the best of the best-est circusers to delight and smile create all over the world. Now they’ve landed in Waterford to shine and surprise all they meet. All couldn’t be happier in their circus world of travelling days…….but, because there’s always an “if” or a “but” and you can’t bet your bottom dollar it’s rarely anything good…: Is there any place for the Circus in this modern world??? Is the circus too set in its ways of the same old tricks? Will their circus, their home, their livelihood survive?
A whirling dervish of play, performance and open air fun for all the family.
“It will be a really interesting show because this year we are mixing styles of theatre using circus skills, acrobatics, dance and music to create a layered piece of theatre that is suitable for all the family. We have a great cast that have been working really hard on their circus skills and have come on leaps and bounds. I’m delighted to be working with Enda, it’s bringing a whole new style of theatre to Waterford Youth Arts that we’ve never explored before”. – Writer Martina Collender
