Child-friendly entertainment for participation, laughter and amazement

Clown Willing wakes up to find his circus left without him. He doesn't know where to go and without a car he can never catch up with the circus. He is sad and remembers all his circus colleagues who he misses. His stick puppet, Lester, suggests that the audience could help. At first Willing is skeptical, he thinks the children are not strong enough. Wrong thought!

Children have super muscles and want to build a new circus with Willing and Lester: They get up and start working. In pantomime they build a circus tent and sing the circus song. Some are chosen as acrobats and others as circus performers. Everyone juggles.

Willing is so excited that he plays his clown show for his new circus buddies as a thank you. When Willing sees his old circus coming back, he provides two new clowns from the audience, because what's a circus without clowns?
