“The Hippo Who Wanted to Fly!”, a children’s circus/theatre story presented by the Youth Circus Troupe of Amazing Grace CIRCUS! debuted Oct. 6 & 7, 2012, at Rockland Community College’s Cultural Arts Theater in Suffern, NY.
This one-of-a-kind circus/theatre presentation is now available for bookings.
“The Hippo Who Wanted to Fly” is the charming story of a young Hippo who is determined to fly, despite the fact that she is wing-challenged. When her parents object to her fantasy, Hippo ventures forth from her pond to find anyone who can help her fulfill her dream. In an unfamiliar part of the jungle she meets a mentor named NEWT who introduces her to ‘animals, who know animals, who know animals that know something about flying’. In the end, Hippo learns many lessons about herself, about ‘spreading her wings’ and really learning to fly.
