BROMSGROVE District Council’s free Street Theatre gets under way tomorrow in Wythall, writes Charlotte Ingleby.
The Stupid Stunt Show and Bruce Airhead will be at Wythall Park during the event which runs from 11am to 3pm.
Visitors are welcome to bring chairs, tables and picnics to enjoy during the show.
In the Stupid Stunt Show Dan runs the gauntlet of Punch Alley, attempts the Melon Catch of Death, performs the legendary Child Juggling routine and flies through a ring of flames (yes, they are real). Will one of the young audience members be brave enough to take up the challenge of the Moneybox of Doom?
Bruce Airhead, with the help of a 6ft balloon which he inflates with the help of a volunteer a voice-activated vacuum cleaner. Then to the crowd’s disbelief, wearing only brightly coloured lycra shorts and choreographed to music, Bruce slides his toned Australian physique completely inside the balloon.
Other performances include Catshill Meadow on Tuesday, July 31, Sanders Park on Wednesday, August 1, Romsley Playing Fields on Thursday, August 2, the Recreation Ground next Wednesday, August 8 and Rubery St Chad’s Park, on August 9.
Other returning performers include Angie Mack and her amazing Hula Hoop Show, The Bubble Wizard, Jason Maverick and Bell and the Bullock.
New performers for 2018 include The Stupid Stunt Show, UNE Femme Expose, Circo Rum Ba Ba – The Crow House and The Felicity Footloose Show.
Coun Peter Whittaker, whose portfolio covers leisure services, said: “Street Theatre gets more popular each year and the acts look set to wow the crowds with daredevil tricks, magic and plenty of comedy.”
