For children and adults alike, each show begins as soon as the audience enters the theatre. The foyer is filled with Russian musicians, clowns, costumed performers and dancers. Theatregoers walk directly from the street into a traditional Russian Folk Festival atmosphere. The show, “A Russian Folk Fair,” is based on centuries-old Russian traditions and fables and is narrated by mythical Russian characters. The production is a dramatic tale told and based on the foundation of the circus arts, and the famed performers of the Moscow Circus, in a theatre-circus format.
Location: Raue Center for the Arts, 26 N. Williams St, Crystal Lake, Illinois.
