The World is a Handkerchief

The World is a Handkerchief
A Bilingual Presentation
By Jorge Diaz (Chile) / Music by Vittorio Cintolesi
Directed by Hugo Medrano
Mar 7 - 19, 2016

When the clown Titiloco becomes bored at the circus, he sets out on his magic handkerchief to see the world. As he ventures to new and mysterious places, he visits the land of Consumania and the Smoke Kingdom. On his magical journey Titiloco learns that the world can be a better place when people care for the environment, value diversity, and enjoy life.  With catchy songs and colorful characters, this show is perfect for children of all ages.

Music by Vittorio Cintolesi.
