“Music and comedy; a magic combination.” – The Australian

A serious classical concert is underway when a mischievous visitor with a red nose arrives on stage and tries to take over the performance. The conductor keeps conducting and the orchestra keeps playing, but the clown’s cheeky antics create havoc on stage. Will the disgruntled conductor and the playful clown ever become friends?

The Conductor and the Clown is a mini symphony show created especially for kids. Combining laugh-out-loud physical comedy with works by Mozart, Beethoven, Tchaikovsky and other great composers, this magical show featuring a 13-piece orchestra introduces children to the joys of classical music with laughter and fun.

Suitable for ages 4 – 12 and their families
