Hat tip, Jefferson Center.
ZooZoo is penguins playing musical chairs, a cat trapped in a giant paper bag, hippos with insomnia, anteaters as waiters, and a madcap revue of illusion, comedy and fun that has inspired audiences nationwide.
Imago’s shows have been described as Cirque Du Soleil-evoking acrobatics mixed with Mummenschanz-like mime, set in a unique, yet accessible, French-influenced avant-garde playground.
Sure to be a delight to all; Jefferson Center welcomes this wonderfully funny, incredibly unique, and delightfully enchanting show to Roanoke!
A bit more information, from Jefferson Center spokesman Jeremy Butterfield:
We’re bringing a really interesting family theatre show to Jefferson Center on April 20th, Imago Theatre ZooZoo.
Well the director is not only from Roanoke, but an alumni of Jefferson High School and is excited to put on a great show inside his old high school auditorium! “I was born and raised in Roanoke until I left at age 17 or 18. Jefferson High was some of my most fondest memories of my childhood – I loved it. In early to mid 70′s it was such a mix of class and kinds of kids. It was when I first immersed and fell in love with theater. When my company returned to play in Roanoke at the home of my high school several years ago I was surprised and pleased, and I am very excited to return!” – Jerry Mouawad
