ARTS INSIGHT YOUTH THEATRE AT THE LOFT
3 – 7 AUGUST, 2022
‘Battle of the Big Top’
Original Script by Laura Berridge
Original Musical Score by Fergal O'Mahony
Additional words/music/arrangement by Ross Power.
When two young siblings visit the Circus, what they see is not what they were expecting. Set in the vibrant world of a Big Top, we follow the siblings’ journey as they observe the obstacles and difficulties people from different backgrounds and with varying beliefs face, as they are forced to co-exist in the same environment.
Can the siblings help the Ringmasters save their beloved circus by teaching everyone to follow the code of RESPECT? Will they ever be able to celebrate each other’s differences and learn to co-exist harmoniously, or will the acts remain fractured and cause the Circus to topple.
