WHAT A CIRCUS AT CHAPLIN’S PLACE!
What better way than a circus show to pay tribute to Chaplin? For two weeks, Chaplin’s World will feature big top performances by “L’Alchimie” circus school, among other surprises.
For the 130th anniversary of Chaplin’s birth, Chaplin’s World (in partnership with “L’Alchimie”) will set up a circus tent in the museum’s park. Three shows will be performed daily, by children and professionals, over the two-week holiday break in the Canton of Vaud (no performances on Thursdays).
In a 1920s circus atmosphere, the performers will juggle hats and perform high-speed chases, and all sorts of acrobatic feats, accompanied by a children’s orchestra playing songs written by Chaplin.
Limited number of seats
Half-hour shows at 11am, 2pm and 4pm.
No performances on Thursday 18 and 25 April.
An Easter egg hunt will also be held in the Museum for your sweet-toothed angels.
Solve circus-themed puzzles and be rewarded with a delicious treat!
Ideal for children ages 5 to 12.
Thanks to the generous support of Cailler.
Additionally, on the weekends (13–14, 20–22, and 27–28 April), wandering acrobats, face painters and a balloon sculptor will enliven the circus, to everyone’s delight.
