BLUE LAKE – Come share in the joyous spirit of laughter at the annual Dell’Arte Clown show! Clown! tumbles into the Carlo Theatre for three performances only, May 9 through 11. Get your tickets early, as Dell’Arte’s annual Clown show consistently sells out!

 This popular performance by the students of Dell’Arte’s Professional Training Program marks the culmination of a five week study of clown, a unique theatrical form with roots in the circus, vaudeville, and the clowning traditions of cultures across the globe. Prepare to be delighted and charmed by the humanity, honesty, and buoyant laughter of the clowns!

Clown! is comprised of short acts created by Dell’Arte’s 1st Year Ensemble, featuring students from New Zealand, Mexico, Italy, Zimbabwe and all across the U.S. 

Following five weeks of intensive study with Dell’Arte Master Teachers, this international ensemble of Actor-Creators bring you an evening filled with humor, poetry, anarchy and revelry in the absurd world of the clown!

 Clown! will run in the Carlo Theatre at 131 H St. in Blue Lake on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, May 9 through 11 at 8 p.m. These popular performances are all pay-what-you-can, with reservations highly encouraged.
