A Circus Theatre Production on the Importance of Storytelling...

Uncle Bernie’s book shop is up for the cut! Circus performing storytellers work against the clock to stop this one-of-a-kind bookshop from going into the wrong hands. 

In this unique circus theatre show, audiences become enthralled and integrated into a world where anything can happen, and with their help, they can help save the business!

Ages: 5+
