The Espana Streb Trapeze Academy presents OUT OF THIS WORLD and DRIVE ME BATTY, six Halloween-themed benefit shows in support of the KID ACTION Scholarship Fund.
OUT OF THIS WORLD (an adult only burlesque/cabaret show) will perform on Friday October 12th and 26th at 8pm. Leave planet Earth and ride the Milky Way to see the Heavenly Bodies performing aerial feats to surprise and titillate the senses with an outer space theme.
Randy Jones the actor, author, American Music Award winner and multi-platinum recording artist, who is the original Cowboy and a founding member of Village People, will host.
The opening number was written for Broadway Bares 2001 by Tony-nominated composer Andrew Lippa and will be sung by Broadway's Nicolette Hart.
DRIVE ME BATTY will be performed on Saturday, October 13th and 27th at 3pm and 8pm. This kid-friendly show will give special treats to children showing up in costume.
The show features everyone's favorite mad scientist, Dr. Frank E. Knevil and his fabulously fiendish lab assistant, Hedda Cadaver.
Emmy Award winner Matt Wilson will host.
These Halloween-inspired shows combine the flavor of the season with aerial and circus acts of wonder! Audience members are encouraged to arrive in costume. The shows will be performed by professional circus artists and aerial students of the Espana Streb Trapeze Academy and aerial performers from throughout the tri-state area. All performers donate their time to benefit the KID ACTION Scholarship Fund. There will be raffle prizes including classes at SLAM, donations from local vendors and the grand prize for each shows raffle is a 50/50 drawing to boost the fundraising efforts for this great cause.
SLAM (the STREB Lab for Action Mechanics) is located at 51 North 1st Street between Wythe and Kent in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
