CIRCUS OF ONE to Play Ocean State Theatre, 2/8
Physical Theatre artist Linda Peck brings her enthralling, zany Circus of One to Ocean State Theatre in Warwick for one show only on Saturday, February 8, 2014.
In between interludes with her musical saw, Linda tangles her way into a picture frame, extracts zany props from her suitcase - parasols, fans, rings, boxes - while audiences wonder what she will produce next. Her lighthearted mix of theatre, mime, circus illusion and tightrope walking, tells a silent story of human foibles, as she interacts with audience members of all ages and creates a whimsical world of wonder.
For over three decades, Linda Peck has performed for gala celebrations, private parties, Renaissance fairs, masquerade balls, corporate events, living history fairs, centennials, and more. She was honored to have had the opportunity to open for both ShAri Lewis and The Smothers Brothers and has appeared at numerous venues including the Flint Youth Theater in Michigan, the Montreal Arts Festival, Lincoln Center, the Bushnell Theater in Hartford, Connecticut, and the Colorado Renaissance Fair. Her exceptional talent has even taken her to Paris, France and Verona, Italy.
The Boston Globe described Ms. Peck's performances as "Clever contained zaniness....when she smiles she radiates an innocence, and impish charm reminiscent of Lucille Ball."
Linda Peck's talents and infectious good humor are a treat for all ages.
Before and after the performance, families can enjoy drinks and snacks, which will be available for purchase at the theatre's lobby concession stand.
