The One-Man Circus in-a-Suitcase gives everyone an opportunity to participate in an enthralling, whimsical celebration of the imagination. This show has been performed over 500 times around the globe, for family theater audiences and school assemblies alike. From Kevin O’Keefe’s suitcase an entire circus emerges: tent, band, lights, the boisterous ringmaster Steve Fitzpatrick, the officious Mervin Merkle, the incredible Bumbilini Family, the Magician to the Stars Clyde Zerbini, and Keefer–an innocent trying to runaway and join the circus. However, the most important performers emerge from the audience. Each performance becomes a dialogue between the characters and the audience–a light-hearted collaboration.
Don’t take our word for it… Take theirs.
“Our audiences thoroughly enjoyed the lunacy of CIRCUS MINIMUS. Mr. O’Keefe’s gallery of wacky circus characters and antics made this fast paced a show a great deal of fun for both kids and adults.” –Bert Goldstein, Director of Education, Cincinnati Playhouse, OH
