Frankenstein for Kids

About

Monstrous original silliness! A quirky tale of "Frankenstein For Kids" – a hilarious fusion of silliness, unscientific storytelling and monstrous balloon puppetry.

When Igor, Dr Frankenstein's assistant, attempts to assemble a beautiful dancer made from balloons, it all goes terribly wrong. Following a plan is not as easy as it looks. Dr Frankenstein is furious – his lifetime dream of winning the highly-coveted North Southby Dance Competition Cup is fading fast and he is ready to burst! A marvellous monster is created and comes alive! Can Igor teach the friendly monster to dance in time? Will Dr Frankenstein be triumphant and win the cup?

In Circo Ridiculoso's unique style, a story is adapted and mutated from horror to ha ha ha, from the dark and spooky to the light and airy. Join international award winning balloon artist, Danny for this highly visual, original, yet gentle anarchic modern clowning show.

Running Time: Approximately 50 minutes
Please note: Performances conation loud balloon pops.


Age Guidance: 4+


Previous Reviews:

"Original sketches and comic silliness are what make this show worth watching….This is simple, light-hearted entertainment that leaves the audience feeling as buoyant as any of Schlesinger's inflatable creations." - Fest Magazine **** On "Lighter Than Air"

"Danny is clearly a skilled performer with warm engaging personality and children really watch him. "Three Little Pigs" kept everyone rapt and the hearty applause at the end was genuine." - Pam Hardiman, Theatre Royal Margate, On "Three Little Pigs"
