InterAct Story Theatre presents Happenstance Theater’s Pinot & Augustine, a children’s opera FREE and open to the public! A classic, family-friendly clown duo inspired by the golden age of Circus. Pinot is the authoritarian clown in fancy clothes and white cone hat. Augustine is the appealing red-nosed bumbler who punctures his pomposity. Their show bubbles over with physical comedy, virtuosity and musical surprises from the sublime to the ridiculous from lyrical melodies on a musical saw to pratfalls and a whoopee cushion. Best for ages 3 and up. This production is supported in part by a grant from the Maryland State Arts Council. On the web at MSAC.org. Also, supported in part by Arts and Humanities Council of Montgomery County, the Montgomery County government and the generous support of a legion of donors and partners.
