Berkshire Athenaeum Special Event

The Berkshire Athenaeum is pleased to announce a special performance! Please join us for a Special Performance: Michael Zerphy presents “Cahoots Clowning around”.  This performance will take place in the Auditorium of the Berkshire Athenaeum on Tuesday, February 17 at 1:00 PM.

In this show the audience has disappeared and a chair takes on a life of its own in a battle with the clown! There seems to be a conspiracy to create comedy as Michael presents the poignancy and hilarity of the classic bumbling fool determined to find a way to deal with life's dilemmas. Michael creates a world that continually surprises the audience - a world in which the ordinary becomes magical and failure is turned into success. Music, juggling, a wide variety of props, and even the audience are included in this versatile show

Michael Zerphy is an actor, storyteller, clown and teacher. His performances have taken him not only around New England but all across the United States and Europe as well. He has performed in hundreds of schools, libraries, theaters, camps and private organizations.  He is a juried artist with the Vermont and New Hampshire Arts Council and is on the touring roster of the New England Foundation for the Arts.
