La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts closes its 2011-12 Programs for Young Audiences series with Troubador Theater Company’s The Funky Punks, a high energy, interactive, circus arts, clown extravaganza. Performances are on Sunday, July 22, 2012 at 1pm and 3:30pm.
A ‘Funky Punk’ is a super silly, extra zany, always adventurous reflection of you and me. A ‘Funky Punk’ is a spunky, quirky, deliciously rambunctious clown. Young at heart with imagination to spare, these childlike fools burst out of the box and will dance and tumble their way into your hearts. Get ready for non-stop, knee slapping, belly laughing as The Funky Punks share their delightful world of wonder and whimsy. Be amazed by puppetry, stilt-walkers, jugglers, dancers, trampoline tricksters, super slippery table sliders, the human body and even a plunger! At times, lucky audience members even have the chance to hop on stage and join in the show. ‘Funky Punks’ put the “Fun” in “Funky.” They are unreal, unstoppable and unbelievable. Bring your kids and celebrate your own inner child as you come undone with the Funky Punks!
