Event flyer for the Whippany Park High School Theatre Production of Under the Big Top

Whippany Park High School Theatre presents Under the Big Top by Martin Follose, November 15 at 7 p.m. and Saturday, November 16 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. at the Whippany Park High School Theatre located at 165 Whippany Road, Whippany, NJ 07981.

Under the Big Top, directed by WPHS teacher, Steven Kuipers and assisted by WPHS teacher Todd Warren is a story of a bank that is going to foreclose on the Marlow Little Big Top Circus unless Mr. Marlow can get the loan repaid in three days. Leo the Lion Tamer is afraid of lions, David Copperflood, the magician, is claustrophobic, and Dipsey and Slipsey, the trapeze artists, are afraid of heights. Two burglars just stole the little bit of money the circus had saved for the loan. The circus performers are all trying to ban together to put on the biggest and best big top performance of their lives while trying to catch the crooks before the bank closes the circus.

Ticket prices are $10 for general admission and $8 for students and staff of WPHS. Discounts are also available for senior citizens. Tickets can be purchased online or during box office hours. See the Whippany Park High School website for box office hours.

For more information, visit the Whippany Park High School website or email the Director, Steven Kuipers.
