CROTON FALLS, N.Y. -- The Schoolhouse Theatre is preparing for a whimsical celebration of the imagination with Kevin O’Keefe during the Circus Minimus, scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 13 at 11 a.m.

From O’Keefe’s suitcase an entire circus emerges: tent, band, lights and a host of zany characters. However, the most important performers emerge from the audience, making for a unique, and light-hearted collaboration for the entire family. 

O’Keefe discovered Circus Minimus in 1985 when he found a small suitcase outside his apartment in New York City and decided to fill it with everything he would need to perform his One-Man Circus in-a-Suitcase around the world.

Since then Circus Minimus has expanded to include five programs that have touched the lives of hundreds of thousands of families.

During the school year, Circus Minimus collaborates with schools for a variety of In-School Integrated Curriculums that let students join the circus without having to leave school.

These include Circus Around the World, Time Machine Circus, CircusYoga and The Human Body, CircusYoga and Life Sciences. The Circus Minimus Afterschool Program employs teaching artists in seven different subjects in ten NYC schools. In 1998, with his wife, Erin Maile, O'Keefe co-founded the practice and community of CircusYoga. Tickets to Circus Minimus are $15 and can be reserved by calling the box office at 914-277-8477.

The Schoolhouse is at 3 Owens Road, Croton Falls, just off exit 8 on I-684. Visit the Schoolhouse on the web at
