The Lookout: Clown around with The Piccolini Trio

Theater in the Open is presenting an evening with The Piccolino Trio this Saturday in Newburyport.

“Circus in a Trunk” is a family-friendly show featuring European-style clowning complete with music, physical comedy, juggling, pantomime and acrobatics.

The trio consists of three former Circus Smirkus performers, Joshua Shack, Joy Powers and John Stork.

The show starts at 6 p.m. at Newburyport City Hall, 60 Pleasant St. Tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for children ages 3-12, and free for children 2 and younger. They are available at Eureka! Toys in The Tannery Marketplace, 50 Water St., and at the door.

Theater in the Open, a nonprofit arts organization in Newburyport that is committed to furthering children’s education in the arts, has been entertaining audiences for 34 seasons.

Author series concludes tonight

Amesbury writer and artist Muriel Angelil will wrap up the Emma L. Andrews Library’s Autumn Author Series with a presentation tonight at 7:30.

Angelil’s new memoir is called “Back to the Past: A Daughter of the Nile.” She grew up in a Melkite Catholic family living in the Islamic city of Alexandria. Her memories include the period around World War II and show the changes wrought in the society by changes in Egypt’s government.

Angelil will read from her book and share her art. The program is free, and the library is located at 77 Purchase St.

Artists Alan Bull and Gordon Przybyla will host a “Pop-up Printathon” on Saturday at Indigo Artist Studio in Newburyport.

The longtime friends and colleagues will create monotypes on-site throughout the day, and the public is invited to view the printmaking process from 2 to 4 p.m. The monotypes will then be on display at a reception from 6 to 8 p.m.

Gallery owner and artist Mary Arthur Pollak will also exhibit her own monotypes, and all three artists will be on hand to explain the process.
