World Premiere Performance: THE GIFT!

Exhibit Related Program

February 15, 2014

The Zany Umbrella Circus presents an original theatrical performance, conceived and crafted at the Children's Museum to bring XOXO: An Exhibit About Love & Forgiveness to life.

THE GIFT tells the story of a heartwarming couple, one dollar and eighty-seven cents, and the very first wedding anniversary of young performers. Based loosely on O. Henry's classic tale The Gift of the Magi, THE GIFT uses physical theatre, masks, participatory theatre, and circus to explore the role of gift giving in expressing and creating love. Written specifically for younger audiences, this zany thirty-minute performance is not to be missed!  

Performances in the lower level Theatre at 1pm & 3 pm.
