Item Description

Was your dream as a child to join the circus?

Ever want to WOW friends or passers-by with style and magic?

Do you have a screen-addicted kid ready for a new obsession?

This may be what you need.

Tony Award-winning actor, master clown, and comedian Bill Irwin will teach you the flips, somersaults, and rolls that clowns make their hats do. An original member of the Pickle Family Circus, Bill will give you a look at the long tradition of “hat moves” from vaudeville theatre, show you some things to strive for, then check back in with you a week or so later with a second session. It’s easier than it looks. It is addictive, and it’s very healthy.

You are sure to learn more than a few skills from this MacArthur “Genius” Award winner who starred in WHO'S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF, created OLD HATS and FOOL MOON, and whose film and TV credits range from “Sesame Street” to “Interstellar” to "Legion.”

Bid to win this once-in-a-lifetime, private session with Bill Irwin to show off your newest hat tricks and claim a lifetime of bragging rights, having learned from the original Mr. Noodle of "Elmo's World," "Sesame Street."
