Wow! Thanks to Girl Circus Alumna and friend of the show Karen Quest, we've uncovered a whole bunch of fabulous photos from our 2009 show Plaid! Cast your mind back to the Year of the Ox and spend a happy Thursday afternoon perusing the archives with the cast of Plaid.
This Saturday, Girl Circus will be appearing at the NWKids summer camp expo at OMSI in Portland. Come on by from 10-5, say hello, look at other (but obviously inferior) summer camps, and SIGN UP FOR GIRL CIRCUS!
We will be offering a 10% discount for any kids who sign up for the Lotus Seed Camp in PDX at this fun event, so make sure to come check it out.
We're excited to be coming back to Portland so soon after our wild success during the Umbrella Festival last weekend. We performed WITCHES to a very large and supportive audience at the historic Alberta Rose Theatre, which is such a fantastic space to perform that we'd love to come back again. We'd especially like to thank all the staff over there: Nick, Vaughn, and Louie for being so helpful and accommodating. Everything about this experience was just a joy. We'd also like to extend a special thanks to our subs: Diane Chaplin on cello, Dan Blaker on voice, and Jori Cohen, who understudied for one of our performers who had to have a tooth out at the last minute. Now check out some backstage pictures from the show!
Two exciting events are coming up these next two April weekends, Girl Circus friends and fans. Firstly, our long-awaited Portland show is coming this Saturday! Come celebrate Girl Circus at 2:00, Saturday April 4th, at the Alberta Rose Theatre in Portland's Alberta Arts District. Tickets for this Highly Girly show are available HERE. (This event is part of the Umbrella Festival, so tickets for all shows this weekend are available on that page.)
Our second event is the Northwest Kids' Summer Camp Expo! Saturday, April 11th, from 10am to 5pm, Girl Circus will be showing off our summer camps at OMSI in Portland. It's free to come in and check it out, so stop by and say hi! Girl Circus is offering a special 10% discount on our camp at the Lotus Seed in Portland to anyone who signs up at this event!
