The Circus is coming to town!…Well, The Rejuvenary Circus, as part of the Schooltime series presented through the Bradford County Regional Arts Council (BCRAC). This isn’t the circus where the lions, tigers and clowns perform; it is a fascinating tale about preserving the environment in a fun and musical way that is geared toward children of all ages. There are three performances at the Keystone Theatre; Friday, Nov. 3 at 9:30 am and 12:30 pm and Saturday Nov. 4 at 10:30 am.
Arm-of-the-Sea Theatre presents, The Rejuvenary River Circus, an allegorical tale that follows Malakai the water carrier and messenger as he travels between Mountain Peaks and the Deep Blue Sea. Along his journeys, Malakai encounters a host of creatures, including a lyrical sea turtle, a fast-talking crow, a pair of industrious beavers (below), filter-feeding oysters, and schools of migrating fish.
Each creature offers insights into their particular role in a watershed’s ecosystem services. When the old man falls ill, his granddaughter Rachel is confronted by the challenge of restoring her grandfather, the River, back to health.
The Rejuvenary River Circus features more than three dozen mask & puppet characters, great live music, and a gorgeous hand-printed bio-morphic set design. It premiered in 2012 and has toured extensively since at such locations as the Cleveland Metroparks, The Clearwater Festival, Hudson Valley Garlic Festival and the Taste of the Catskills Festival. The show runs 50 minutes in length and is ideally suited for family audiences, arts-in-education settings and watershed celebrations. It can be presented on a stage, a large room or out-of-doors. Production of the show was made possible with support from the Hudson River Improvement Fund.
Don’t miss this show or the opportunity to bring your little ones…great for ages pre-K through 6th grade. Seats are filling up fast, so call 570-268-ARTS (2787) to make your reservation. Tickets are only $6 a person!

Schooltime: A Youth Oriented Series: The BCRAC believes that the Arts are a fundamental part of each and every one of us and, as such, should be enjoyed by all. The Arts engage imagination, nurture creativity and ignite learning. Extending curriculum through the Arts deepens the experience and the learning that you provide to your students. This is why we believe that the Arts and students are a natural fit. We widen the horizons of students when we offer them the experience of art in its many forms.
