The Berkeley Playhouse TeenStage Presents Carnival!

Edgy, poignant, and poetic, Carnival! tells the tale of Lili; the charming orphan who happens upon a troupe of performers from a raffish traveling circus, and joins the act. She becomes somewhat infatuated with the show’s magician, Marco the Magnificent but soon realizes that her future is entwined with the lame, misanthropic puppeteer Paul. She ends up performing with Paul’s puppets in a charming show that becomes the circus’ star attraction. The hauntingly beautiful musical theme, “Love Makes the World Go Round,” runs through the story, which captures the mood of carnival people perfectly. Thirty students from the Berkeley Playhouse TeenStage will inhabit the European traveling circus for one weekend only.
