The Piccolini Trio's Circus in a Trunk Jan 7-29
Posted December 30, 2011
Canal Park Playhouse is thrilled to present the return of The Piccolini Trio with Circus in a Trunk, created and performed by Joy Powers, Joshua Shack, and John Stork; directed by Joshua Shack.

A trio of clowns arrive at Canal Park Playhouse ready to watch the circus that never arrives. This enterprising troupe decides to perform the show themselves, pulling an amazing and hilarious performance full of clever surprises out of an antique trunk.

Combining contemporary and classic European style clowning, The Piccolini Trio bring to life a repertoire of routines using music, acrobatics, physical comedy, juggling, pantomime, and poetic whimsy. This must-see show, perfect for anyone aged 3 to 103, was called ”completely endearing, endlessly entertaining and charming!” by

Lisa Soverino is the lighting designer. Set design is by Elizabeth Barrett Groth. Costume design is by Joshua Shack.

Part of Canal Park Playhouse’s classic brunch matinee series, audience members can enjoy a selection of items from The Waffle Iron Café, open from 10a,–6:30pm on Saturdays and Sundays for ticket holders only. The menu includes hot-off-the-waffle-iron spinach, mushroom, smoked chicken sausage frittatas; French toast; and of course traditional Belgian waffles with pure Vermont maple syrup and butter as well as the house specialty, The Playhouse Pink Waffle (a pink waffle with strawberries and whipped cream). Greek yogurt, granola, and fresh fruit are also available.
