Community members are invited to join in a mid-December midday event of spellbinding entertainment and treats at the annual Hilo Elks “World of Magic” performance.
This year’s theme is “Circus Holly-Daze,” and described as “a ridiculously wondrous circus-theater production boasting amazing skills, great characters and guaranteed good, family fun for all ages.”
Created by Annetta Lucero and Noah Moore of Terminal Circus, the performance will be on Sunday, Dec. 16, starting 11 a.m. at Hilo’s historic Palace Theater.
Here’s the plot: Disillusioned Saint Slick frantically tries to compete with the high-tech, commercialized, corporate toy industry by holding auditions for competent workshop employees.
To his dismay, he ends up with a bumbling, gaggle of elfin misfits who are skilled at everything other than technology.
Their hilarious antics, mishaps and discoveries ultimately lead Saint Slick to a new appreciation for the simple things in life.
“This entertaining Circus Arts Spectacular will ultimately impress you as much as it warms your heart,” said Elks spokeswoman Lily Chan-Harris. “Please come join us for this fun-filled event. At the show’s end, coordinators are expecting a jolly visit from Santa, too.
Admission is free, and donations are gladly accepted. Questions? Call the Hilo Elks Lodge at 935-1717.
