The Newton Nomadic Theater’s reason for being is to present startlingly good theater to a local audience. Right from the start though, our ambitions have been broader. We’ve also presented film premiers, music performances, and hosted an extremely popular story-telling series – The Nomad Story Slam. Most recently, we’re bringing a one-man-show from New York.
A few months ago, when we learned that the Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey Circus was going to shut down after nearly 100 years in business, we smelled a mammoth and very exciting opportunity.
After a month long negotiation, we’re thrilled to announce that we have purchased a large assortment of equipment, exotic animals, and recruited some top shelf circus performers.
This coming September we will launch The Cirque Du Newton, a show like you have never seen before.
Said Newton Nomadic Theater founder Linda Goetz “I’ve always been in awe of the artistry and the dramatic impact of the Cirque Du Soleil. The opportunity to blend circus and theater is very exciting.”
Said Jerry Reilly, the other Newton Nomadic Theater founder, “I’ve always loved freak shows and carneys and can’t wait to bring them to a Newton audience.”
This September we will have it all – the artistry, the freaks, the elephants, the camels, the clowns, and the death defying feats. Long time fans of the theater should rest easy though. We’ll still present it in our usual Nomadic Theater style,
The Cirque de Newton will open on Fri Sept 15 and Sat Sept 16 in Steve Siegel’s living room. It will run for five weeks and close on Sunday Oct 15 in the doorway of Dunn Gaherins Pub
