Clown in the Round

Id Circo Theatre Group

Theater, Comedy & Improv, Art for Young Audiences (Kids Fringe), Family


Do you hear that sound? It's Clown in the Round!

We searched Shakespeare's pages

For fun for all ages

And wait til you see what we found!

Bridging the gap between "high-" & "low-brow" comedy, between the "wordiest words" & "slappiest sticks," Id Circo Theatre Group presents Clown in the Round for ages 7-12. Four clowns fool their way through some Shakespeare full of popcorn & sound effects for a radical participatory take on the Bard. Combining classical theatre, clowns, and exploring how to create success out of failure, Clown in the Round has something for everyone.
