A sweet and melancholy clown named R. G. Chesterton (Matt Walley), pushing a trunk full of surprises, takes the stage in this delightful physical variety show.

It’s a happy mix of comic encounters bubbling with simple pleasures, like finding a creative way to fill a little red cup to water a wilting rose.

While most clowns have odd hats, Chesterton has an especially strange musical hat, which seems to have the magical power to discern personality and play music to fit the moment in the funniest way possible — the perfect accessory to go with a wind-up opposable thumb.

Along for the ride is the graceful Angela Horchem as an acrobatic stagehand with a troublesome mop. She also dives in as Chesterton’s partner engaging in some synchronized swimming in a very small space.

Mixtape is a world brimming with silliness and child-like wonder, an utterly charming show for all ages.

—Wendy King

 

From the Fringe program:

As R.G. Chesterton unpacks his steamer trunk, he reveals an imaginative world. Experience dancing creatures falling in love, acrobatic clowns performing a death-defying dive, and other surprises. It's a MixTape of original pieces that will delight, mystify, and awaken your sense of mirth.

 

"In its simplicity, it is grand. In its creativity, it is a pleasure. As a joint venture—because Walley and Horchem engage so genuinely with us—Theatre 3's MixTape rocks." - Sherilyn Forrester, Tucson Weekly
