For 25 years, The Falloons, veterans of Broadway, Film, Television and the Big Apple Circus, have been commissioned by Museums, Festivals, Schools, the NEA and the EPA to take esoteric subjects and make them not only accessible but EXHILARATING for family audiences.
We have used all that experience with World Class Circus, Vaudeville, Song and Dance and Family Entertainment to illustrate the K-8 Earth Science Curriculum Standards for New York and New Jersey Public Schools.
We then focus this science in on issues of SUSTAINABILITY including:
REDUCING, RE-USING AND RECYCLING, LITTER ABATEMENT, ENERGY CONSERVATION, CLIMATE SCIENCE and STORM WATER MANAGEMENT
With our two players, Professor Winkleburger, the head of the Earth Science Club and Mr. Meatloaf, the crazy neighbor the kids identify and learn with (not to mention the mysterious Commonsensonator...oooooooo!) The Falloons have performed over 4000 of our sustainability shows in the past 15 years at Performing Arts Centers, Theaters, Festivals, Schools, Museums and Libraries from Cape May to Cape Cod! In addition we have had over 20,000 views of our VIRTUAL PLATFORM!
Think: Abbott and Costello Meet Earth Science!
The shows are jam-packed with…
• Slap Stick
• Song And Dance
• Classic Vaudevillian Comedy
• Bell Choirs,
• Bubble Sculptures,
• Plate Spinning,
• Audience Participation…and:
• The Mysterious Commonsensenator (ooooooooooo!)
o The Grand Falloons make the K-8 Earth Science Curriculum
and solutions for Waste Reduction not only accessible but
o The shows' skill and pace creates an excitement, a PASSION
for Litter Abatement, Reducing, Re-using and Recycling
o That passion has our young audiences chanting at the end
of each show the Falloon’s Pledge to the Environment:
I pledge Allegiance!
To the Earth!
And to all Trees Outstanding!
Under the Sun!
With Joyous Air And Water For All!*
THE EARTH SCIENCE CIRCUS ASSEMBLY PROGRAMS
A TOUGH ACT TO FOLLOW!
