My Nose Turns Red

A friend sent me this info, and it looks pretty interesting. I'm wondering how hard it is to get kids into classes for this too:
My Nose Turns Red Theatre Company presents:
The New Millennium Youth Circus Holiday Extravaganza
Saturday December 15, 2007, 2 p.m.
at the Jarson-Kaplan Theater, Aronoff Center for the Arts

This youth circus features seasoned youth performers and newcomers alike. The advanced youth circus troupe will perform their feats of skill along with the Cincinnati Waldorf School Jump Ropers and the Sands Montessori Circus Troupe. Music will be provided by The New Vintage Trio.

Featured performers in the advanced circus troupe this year will include the five students who advanced their skills this summer by taking workshops in German Wheel, Acrobatics, Unicycle, and the Mini-Trampoline.

Joining them onstage are nine other advanced students ranging from 7 – 15 years old performing their extraordinary skills in wire walking, the rolling globe, unicyling, juggling and astonishing hula hooping.

Two after-school MNTR circus sites, the Cincinnati Waldorf School and Sands Montessori will highlight their jump roping, stilt walking and balancing skills. Altogether 42 students will be performing onstage at the seventh annual Youth Circus Holiday Extravaganza. Joining director Steve Roenker will be professional juggler Tom Sparough, otherwise known as the Space Painter and Kellie Clark, one of the region’s premiere hula-hoop dancers. Tom will be working with the troupe on an advanced diablo piece, juggling and unicycle piece. Kellie has been working with the troupe on hula-hoop dancing. Co-founder Jean St. John will MC.

Steve Roenker, director of My Nose Turns Red Theatre Company, teaches clown and circus at various locations throughout the year including the Diocesan Catholic Children’s Home, The New School and the Playhouse in the Park.

The New Millennium Youth Circus Holiday Extravaganza features dedicated and courageous youth from the Greater Cincinnati region. Many of the youth take year-round classes mastering the circus arts. For more information, please contact Steve Roenker, 859-581-7100.

Tickets are $15 for adults and $8 for children, and can be purchased here.
