Calgary needs more excuses to have a good laugh, and The Pumphouse Theatre, in partnership with the Calgary Clown Society, has decided to do something about it! We will be hosting the Calgary Clown Festival.
This event is a rare opportunity to introduce Calgary to the not-so-serious art of clowning and challenge the perception of what clowning is, while showcasing the rich and talented community of artists. There will be workshops for the curious and enthusiastic, along with intensive training sessions so that the the serious (but not so serious) professional entertainers can advance their careers and elevate the level of performance in Calgary.
Following the workshops will be four days chalk full of shows and entertainment! We are incredibly excited to announce that the famous clowning duo, Mump & Smoot will be headlining the festival and seven other acts will be featured and late night cabarets for the adults!
Need something for the kids? On September 21st from 12 pm – 5 pm join us for our Family Fun Day. Along with our ticketed shows, there will be a variety of free, family-friendly events and activities including entertainment by Hamlet, the Clown, and a kid-friendly dance party by DJ Hank Star, along with these two ticketed events!
Join us in celebrating physical theatre and all the magical possibilities that can come from a clown on stage.
