Cleverly disguised as an adult, Mike’s wanton heed
and giddy cunning abet his mischievous nature.

Schools

Mike has 2 school shows; one geared for the Junior/Senior High audience, and the other for Elementary Schools. Each show runs for 45 minutes, and a question and answer period afterwards enables the kids to interact, and find out more about the visually exciting circus skills and intriguing performance.

Mike's fast-paced comedic School shows have been seen and enjoyed by thousands of students and teachers. Hands-on workshops can be included so students have an experiential and fun insight into circus arts or theatre.
