Pajama clad orphans rock aerial arts and combat the evils of group home life, from kleptomaniacs to maladjusted kids with traumatic pasts. These super heroic kids turn the dreaded double digits--decreasing chances of being adopted past age 9--into a challenge and a coming of age to be celebrated. These parentless kids look out for each other and form a truly inclusive family to be proud of. We caught this must see show last Sunday and highly recommend it. If you're looking for affordable, family friendly circus fun, this is the show for you.
We enjoyed the multiple silks/tissue, the juggling, the acro, the story line and the musical choices. The stuffed bear--outfitted with handles so he can be an active part of the acro and aerial arts--is a creative twist. These kids play on multiple levels literally and figuratively! The talent among The Actors' Gym kids and creative team is immense and a pleasure to see in action.
They had me at the macabre bear. What an eye catching poster. Get your tickets today. Last chances to catch Troup are the 3 final shows this Saturday and Sunday!
