Humanities Iowa and Iowa Business Growth present!
In their Debut Touring performance of The Nitch, Satyrus Jeering's masked Cohort will be joined by multiple artistic acts in a Variety Style show heralding a return to the era of Vaudeville Theater Circuits in Iowa.
INTRODUCING OUR ALL-IOWAN CAST & CREW!
A Visual Variety of Veritable Feats!
Based on the acclaimed children’s fantasy book, Satyrus Jeering’s The Nitch is a wildly raucous theatrical event wherein Mr. Jeering’s bookselling Cohort of three masked players continually work to thwart each others attempt at reading the book to the audience. Throughout their bumbling attempt at sharing The Nitch, a myriad of comedic scenarios unfold in a pie flying spectacle of literary buffoonery.
Witness Fantastical Flights!
The tour will include acrobatic feats by Iowa Fly Girl, Felicia Coe!
Felicia Coe is Iowa’s premier aerial instructor, having established and operated Iowa’s first aerial teaching program in 2012, making her the states first aerial coach; she is a pioneer of the Iowa aerial community. She has produced over 50 shows and events since moving back to Iowa in 2011 with a focus on creating performance opportunities for amateur and up and coming performing artists. http://www.iowaflygirl.com/
