                                   CIRCOPHONY DIRECTOR, ALLISON MCDERMOTT:

Circophony Teen Circus presents  Circus Botanicus, an original circus-theater production based on the comic secret lives of the plant world. Performances will be on March 21 and 22 at 7 pm, and March 23 at 2 pm and 7 pm.

Featuring juggling, acrobatics, contortion, balancing, unicycling and clowning, Circus Botanicus is the result of months of training and creation by Circophony, a Teen Circus company for ages 12 – 20, and will be a treat for kids and adults. The Company is directed by professional circus performer and instructor Allison McDermott, with guest direction by contortionist and acrobat Naja Muller.

Circophony is a collaboration between Oddfellows Playhouse and ARTFARM. Since 2003 Circophony has offered teenagers circus training and performance opportunities in a fun but rigorous environment.

Tickets for Circus Botanicus are $15 for adults, $8 for students and kids, or $35 per family. Thursday, March 21 is a Pay-What–You-Can Preview.

All performances take place at Oddfellows Playhouse, 128 Washington Street, Midletown. For more information, go to, call (860) 347-6143, or email
