Missy Barrett's Adventures

The amazing adventures of a fictional child

Finding Balance

on November 12, 2017

There’s a new show in town and it’s called Acrobats of China.   My mom and brothers and me went to see this show on Saturday afternoon.  My mom said we were going to see plates spinning and juggling and balancing on a stack of chairs and spinning girls and gymnastic feats and other amazing stuff, and she wasn’t kidding.  Look at all these pictures I took at the show.

There was even a human slinky girl who could hula hoop more hula hoops all at the same time than anybody else in whole wide world.  Seriously!

One of the acts that made me laugh a lot and that I really, really loved was the one where the boys and men were juggling straw hats. Now maybe you think it’s easy to juggle straw hats because they’re not heavy and because they’re kind of big, but that’s not true. It’s actually way harder because if there’s even a little bit of unexpected breeze in the theater, those hats aren’t going to go where people think they’re going to go. So the jugglers have to pay a way lot of attention to everything, not just the hats they’re juggling.

There was even a magic trick that I’m still trying to figure out.  I think I know how it got done but my brothers say probably it’s not like how I explained it to them.  I would explain it to you except if I’m right I don’t want to wreck the magic of the trick for anyone reading this review by me.

Everyone on stage was always smiling even when they were doing very dangerous balancing acts like the lady that balanced on bricks that were on chairs stacked up almost all the way to the ceiling of the theater!  Also she was very careful not to get distracted and plus I was superly happy that before the show started, the MC (that’s short for Master of Ceremonies) asked everyone to NOT use any flash on their cameras when they took pictures.  Flash could have maybe made a accident happen especially when someone is doing a superly dangerous balancing act like the lady acrobat was doing.

Anyway, all the acrobats are very young.  The youngest one is 14 years old (that’s just a little younger than my brother Josh) and the oldest one is 22 years old (that’s just a little older than my brother Aaron).  I can tell you that if I worked hard at learning just one of the acts, when I’m 14 years old, I don’t think I’ll be ready to do what the acrobats were doing on stage.  That’s how talented all of them are.

When we were leaving the theater, I asked the lady at the ticket selling spot how long the acrobats are going to be here.  She said they’re going to be at the theater until January 7, 2018, then they’ll take a short break and be back in March again.

This show is Missy Barrett approved for all ages, so if you’re wondering if you should see this show, the answer is YES!  See this show.  Take all your friends and family with you, too, because that’s how much fun you’re going to have at this show.  I would tell you everything I saw yesterday but if I did, it might spoil the WOWness of everything and I want you to be amazed just like me and my family were when we saw the Acrobats of China.

So go see the show and then go to my Facebook page and let me know what you thought of it and even share pictures if you take any.
