The On-Time Circus
Ms. Tock has set out with her feisty dog, a diva chicken, and tagalong mice in her quirky little trailer assembled from pieces of her past! Together they have a circus to perform. This is not just any circus; this circus is On-Time! Ms. Tock studied time with her beloved Grandfather Clock, and now even Grandfather Clock has a timely circus act! There is just one catch, and that has the fate of he On-Time Circus up in the air!
Performers:  Margo McCreary, Paulino Brener and musicians.
