THEATRE AT RVCC TO PRESENT MOSCOW CIRCUS
The Theatre at Raritan Valley Community College (RVCC) in North Branch will present an evening with the Moscow Circus, Friday, February 29, at 7 p.m. The performance is part of the Theatre?s Merck Series , made possible by a generous grant from The Merck Company Foundation.
Tickets to Moscow Circus cost $30 and $35.
A Moscow Circus performance begins as the audience enters the lobby and walks directly into a traditional Russian folk festival. The group?s current show, A Russian Folk Fair , is based on centuries-old Russian traditions and fables. Using folk musicians, singers, dancers, human puppets and ornate costumes and backdrops, the show combines drama, cultural history and the theatrics that can only be created by some of the greatest circus performers on earth.
