A beautiful, movement-based show that revisits the classic film The Red Balloon. Nothing can go right for the character of the old man, whose days are gray and dreary–until he is visited by a friendly red balloon. In the playful physical style of Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton, the old man–an adult version of the boy in the film–regains his youthful spirit, with the help of the red balloon!

Produced by special arrangement with Plays for New Audiences
“I don’t use the terms “squeals of delight” or “laugh out loud” often, but there is no other way to describe the sounds of pure happiness and joy that filled the room full of toddlers watching Balloonacy.”
