Umbrella Festival: Clowns and Comedy
Celebrating its third year, the Umbrella Festival of Circus and Comedy returns to the Alberta Rose Theatre April 3rd thru 6th with an impressive cast of vaudevillians, acrobats, and musicians performing four nights of offbeat cabaret, comedy, and circus. Witness the eclectic ensemble of performers gathered for this rollicking bohemian and gypsy–themed festival co–directed by David “Leapin’ Louie” Lichtenstein and Noah “William Batty” Mickens.
Delight in an evening of slapstick and physical comedy to the tune of light–hearted music showcasing circus comedians Hilary Chaplain, Al Simmons, Leapin’ Louie, and Jan Damm along with folktronica musician Shovelman, acrobatic vocalist Tera Zarra, and vintage western Davy Jay Sparrow and his Western Songbirds.
