PART OF HANDMADE WORLDS: A FESTIVAL OF PUPPET THEATRE|
(For more information about all the festival activities, go to www.handmadeworlds.org)
Ms. Tock has set out with her feisty dog, a flock of talented chickens, and tag-a-long mice in her quirky little trailer assembled from pieces of her past! Together they have a circus to perform. This is not just any circus; this circus is On-Time! Ms. Tock studied time with her beloved Grandfather Clock, and now even Grandfather Clock has a timely circus act! There is just one catch, and that has the fate of the On-Time Circus up in the air!
The On-Time Circus is up-to-the-minute fun for family audiences! Puppets, clowning and live music, and songs make this show a must-see. Come experience the tradition of traveling performers who set up in your town to put on a show.
We tour "The On-Time Circus" in a puppet wagon/trailer that is made out of reused parts and recognizable objects that are "re-purposed" and used in fanciful ways so that the overall effect is of wonder. Curiosity is peaked, necks craned, questions asked, thoughts provoked!
Created by Margo McCreary, Paulino Brener, Marya Hart, and Bruce Wintervold.
On-Time Circus will be performed outdoors on the south side of the Midtown Greenway* between Chicago and 10th Avenues. You can access the Greenway via the staircase from the Chicago Avenue Bridge (just behind the Sheraton Minneapolis Midtown Hotel). Once on the Greenway, head east, pass under the Elliot Ave Bridge, and the performance space will be on your right (behind the Midtown Exchange and across the path from the Freewheel Midtown Bike Center).
*The Midtown Greenway is a bikeway in the converted railway corridor that runs east/west between Lake Street and 28th Avenue.
HANDMADE WORLDS: A Festival of Puppet Theatre is produced by Open Eye Figure Theatre in collaboration with the Great Plains Region of The Puppeteers of America and In the Heart of the Beast Puppet and Mask Theatre.
