Free Lunchtime Performances from Synetic Theater

Grab your lunch and head to the courtyard at 2121 Crystal Drive for a special lunchtime performance by Synetic Theater every Thursday in April. The program will feature two of Synetic's signature comedic "silent" sketches, the Music Box and The Miraculous Magical Balloon.

Here's the schedule:

  • April 13 - The Music Box 11am & 12pm
  • April 20 - The Miraculous Magical Balloon 11am & 12pm
  • April 27 - The Music Box 11am & 12pm

The Music Box

A wonderful collection of comedic vignettes set to music: an average day becomes extraordinary when a surly janitor and an uptight businessman discover a magical mask, two cowboys in the wild west tame a bull on the loose, two road workers try to catch a butterfly in an attempt to capture the heart of a girl, and the classic invisible wall. Students are introduced to the art of storytelling without words through imagination, illusions, and physical comedy.

The Miraculous Magical Balloon

A series of hilarious sketches synthesizing music, ballet, clowning, and audience participation. Students will discover the art of acting without words, opening the door to their imaginations. Expressed through body and facial masks, pantomime illusions, and unique choreography, ‘Balloon’ tells a wonderful story of a traveling actor and his magical trunk of tricks and toys.
