Successful Arts Council grant for a new show for 2012
We would not normally send out a newsletter in the middle of our summer touring schedule, but we would like to share with you our good news.
We have just been informed that our new show THE CIRCUS GIRL has received an Arts Council grant. This show will be touring the UK in 2012, exclusively to commissioners.
THE CIRCUS GIRL will be set around a travelling circus, with an old fashioned showman’s caravan and trailer. For our inspiration, we have been watching Charlie Chaplin's 1928 silent movie "The Circus". Our characters will include a strongman circus boss, his ‘put upon’ daughter and an itinerant traveller who arrives looking for work. Ideally, the show will be performed at dusk to family audiences.
We are looking to form partnerships with commissioners who would like to support and aid the development of this new show. Each commissioner will contribute a small commissioning fee and also contract the company for at least one performance of the show in 2012. There are still a few places available, so please contact us as soon as possible if you would like to support this new project.
We are currently touring Europe (Romania, Portugal, Czech Republic, Poland, Italy, France, Scandanavia and Germany) with both CLIFFHANGER! and THE STATION with also a trip to Israel in August.
Our indoor show THE LION TAMER will be on tour once again in the autumn and in the spring of 2012. Book now to avoid disappointment..!
Please visit our website for a full schedule of our performances and contact us as soon as possible if you would like to book any of our shows.
Have a good summer!
