Overture Center’s Kids in the Rotunda is a series of free artistic programs designed for children and families which runs from the last weekend in September through April. This popular performing arts series on the Rotunda Stage offers a relaxed, kid-friendly environment in which to enjoy a diverse lineup of local and regional musicians, storytellers, jugglers, theater troupes, magicians and dancers. The programs run every Saturday at 9:30 am, 11 am and 1 pm (each performance lasts around 45 minutes). The 1 pm performances are sign language interpreted.
“In 2001, professional clown, actor and juggler Jacob Mills and dancer, aerialist and stiltwalker Marcia Miquelon combined forces to offer the first “Let the Wild Rumpus Begin!” circus arts day camps in Mazomanie. In 2009, the Wild Rumpus World Circus began touring internationally, offering annual performances and workshops in the Middle East and Germany.
World Famous clown Alred Tortellini is our horn-juggling host for this lively, engaging and family friendly performance. Combine hilarious clowning with a little hulahooping, fantastic stilt characters with mask theater and rapid fire juggling, and watch the Wild Rumpus (and the laughter) ensue. Sometimes the audience even ends up in the show… you never know!”
