Not at all, says Shelley Woodworth, marketing director at the Vilar Center, which hosts the circus tonight. "It's just a wonderful opportunity for parents to expose kids to a live performance that's fun, funny and has a great message."
Sure, there's a great moral, it's incredibly entertaining and instead of talking trains or overweight purple monsters, the one-man circus (starring Jamie Adkins) takes a creative approach to getting the message across. Adkins uses two ladders like stilts; he pops ping-pong balls in his mouth; he walks around covered with a box; he tumbles on chairs and balances a piece of paper on his nose you know, all that terrible stuff.
Circus Incognitus starts at 6:30 p.m. at the Vilar Center, 68 Avondale Lane in Beaver Creek; tickets are $18. For more information, go to www.vilarpac.org or call 1-970-949-1999.
