Employing a creative use of simple props and settings, the cast of merry pranksters jump around the stage brimming with energy and enthusiasm. In a variation of the old “car full of clowns” circus gag, they each emerge onto center stage via a seemingly bottomless and gaily-painted toy box and make their introductions.
We meet a cowboy, a ballerina, a computer nerd, a coach, a football pro and a tough-talking ‘home boy’, to mention a few. All the clowns are decked out in zany and colorful outfits, resplendent in stripy stockings, rainbow suspenders, polka-dot bow ties, silly hats and, of course, funny noses and freckles.
The silly and the spectacular join forces for this high-energy, interactive circus extravaganza which includes everything from puppets, stilt-walkers and jugglers to trampoline tricksters, super slippery table sliders, pratfalls, balancing tricks, breathtaking trapeze artistry, general tomfoolery and funny business and even a plunger!
The uncontrollable giggling from kids in the audience is almost as funny as the on-stage antics.
After the show, the little ones can meet all the clowns and get their programs signed.
Funky Punks is a wonderful and fun-filled show for tiny tots.
