When Barbara Foristall (aka Crackerjacks the Clown, pictured at right) asked me if the Granite State Clowns could present a program at the library, I was in the market for fun and educational programs for July and August. What could be more fun than clowns? And if they talked about clowning--its history, the make-up and costumes, the skits and props--why, that's educational, too! So I signed them up.
On Tuesday, July 17, at 7 p.m., Crackerjacks and her friends will present "All About Clowning." This is not a clown performance, so is not intended for children. (We have many children's programs planned for the summer.) Instead, it's a behind-the scenes look at the history and art of clowning. The Granite State Clowns are looking for new members, so if you've ever thought you'd like to try clowning, here's your chance to get a first-hand look at the job. And if you're just curious about a clown's life, you'll still enjoy the program. Remember? Fun and educational.
Adults and teens age 12 and up are invited to this program. Seating will be limited, so it's recommended that you call 424-5021 or email to reserve seats.
