See what’s under the big top at Phillips’ Mill

What’s that brilliant flash of color peaking out from under the roof of historic Phillips’ Mill? Circus magic, that’s what.

Mill writers Kevin Nalty ( “Murder At The Circus”) and Valerie Eastburn (“The Ring Master”) have been joined by playwrights Tabitha Dell’ Angelo (“Circus 2.0”) and Luigi Jannuzzi (“The Greatest Circus Insider Love Story On Earth”) to produce “Three Ring Circus,” a rollicking good time under the big top, beginning May 17.

New Hope’s own Joe Phillips has transformed the Mill’s small stage into a magical playground for – use your imagination here – jugglers, aerialists, funambulists, gorillas, lion tamers, people who are bearded, marching bands, clowns and more. (Reality check, there is no fly space at the Mill).

Four original one-act plays intertwined with songs accompanied by a live musical trio and choreography by Betty Benton, will transport viewers into the world of the “circus.”

Reservations may be made at Performances are May 17, 18, 23, 24 and 25. Members pay $25; general admission is $30. All You Can Laugh Thursday is $20 unreserved, at the door. Doors open at 7 p.m. BYOB.
