Daring Theatrical exploration.

“Everyone should see something at the Actors Gymnasium at least once. If only to remember the fluttery feeling of joy in your heart that only circus can invoke.” – Emma Couling, Newcity Stage

All the Time in the World:

An Imaginary Circus

February 16 – March 24
Fridays at 7:30, Saturdays at 4:30 & 7:30, and Sundays at 3 PM

All the Time in the World is a circus about time. Trudy is a young girl who lives a hectic life with her very busy family, and who also has an imaginary friend.

When Trudy’s imaginary friend is suddenly too busy to play with her and leaves to join the circus, she and her parents enter the circus paracosm to find more time and reunite Trudy and her imaginary friend.
