BUCKET O’FUN WORKSHOPS
Led by Burlington-based theater professional Trish Denton and circus artist Eric Denice, Bucket O' Fun is an educational performance team rallying side-show flavored community spectacles for all-ages. Bucket O’Fun began in 2006 when the team traveled to Maine to attempt a daring 4-Man-Roller-Diamond using rusty skates and highly-elastic suspenders. The event was such a success that the fun kept rollin'! 

The south lawn of City Hall Park becomes the Kids Zone, with ongoing performance workshops and a kid-produced show each day. Led by Burlington-based theater professional Trish Denton and circus artist Eric Denice, Bucket O' Fun is an educational performance team rallying side-show flavored community spectacles for all-ages. Bucket O’ Fun began in 2006 when the team traveled to Maine to attempt a daring 4- man roller-diamond using only skates and suspenders. The successful event was such a racket that the fun never ended!

WORKSHOPS:


Parade Show

12:00PM: Acrobatics and Circus Arts
Come One, Come All! to the spectacular realm of the golden-age of circus. Create a circus of old through storytelling and tumbling. Ride the circus train deep into our collective imagination! Workshop is geared towards team building and exploration of a bygone era, rather than skills training.

 

Juggling

1:00PM: Juggling and Clowning Around
After an introduction to basic juggling, participants should be prepared to say YES! to silliness and tom foolery. Slap stick games, tossing and tumbling will put a twinkle in your eye!

 

Spieling

2:00PM: Spieling, Snake Oil and Theater Games
Learn how to be a true spieler as we bark in a bombastic carnival blitz. Be prepared for astonishing and astronomical alliterations, fast-talking snake oil salesman training, and hilarious, side-splitting games.

 

 

 Clowning

3:00PM: Laugh-A-Riot Games
Be prepared for ridiculous laughs and goofball group games. We will experiment and share ideas while exploring character, clowning, showmanship and comedy. Must be open to silliness!
