Circo Comedia promises fun for kids of all ages

Circo Comedia

The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust‘s Citizens Bank Children’s Theater Series continues with performances by Circo Comedia March 5 to 12 at six locations throughout the area.

Circo Comedia is comprised of Jean Saucier and Patrick Cote from Montreal, who combine their brand of zany comedy and daredevil stunts to perform acrobatic tricks, daring feats and magic.

In their performance, Saucier showcases his skills as a master equilibrist, juggler, trick cyclist, acrobat and magician, assisted by Cote, a clown, expert roller skater and drummer.

Both Saucier and Cote trained at the École National du Cirque de Montréal. Saucier worked with Cirque du Soleil before he started performing with Circo Comedia in 1999. He partnered with Cote in 2004 to form the current duo.

“The artists blend various circus skills with humor, music, magic, roller skating and a dash of danger. Kids and grownups alike may be inspired to try their own hand at clowning after the show,” says Pamela Komar, the Trust’s director of theater, music and youth programming.

Circo Comedia will perform at 2 p.m. March 5 at Pittsburgh’s Byham Theater; 7 p.m. March 8, Penn Hills High School; 5:30 and 7:30 p.m. March 9, Marshall Middle School, Wexford; 7 p.m. March 10, Avonworth High School; 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. March 11, Mellon Middle School, Mt. Lebonan; and 2 p.m. March 12, Seneca Valley Senior High School, Harmony.

Admission is $12, $10 in advance, free for children under 2 with lap pass. Details: 412-456-6666 or For group tickets, call 412-471-6930.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
