Freeman Stage Launches Summer Series Saturday

SELBYVILLE – The Freeman Stage at Bayside will kick off the summer with an exciting performance of Cirque Montage on Saturday, May 26. The show is free for all and starts at 7 p.m.

Cirque Montage creates a whimsical world of animated characters that defy the perception of what is possible. The acts weave together in a collage of traditional cutting edge circus arts. Comedy comes in the form of the candid Ringmaster who is shadowed by a mischievous red featherless bird named Raven in search of fame.

Amidst a versatile dance ensemble, which ranges in movement from high octane and electrifying the Ringmaster presents a breath taking father and daughter hand balancing adagio, a variety of high flying aerial arts and a bombastic juggler dancing on the stage as if he’s in the last round of a marathon. Cirque Montage will excite and thrill audiences of all ages.

“This will be a great way to kick-off the Memorial Day weekend,” said Patti Grimes, executive director of the Joshua M. Freeman Foundation. “We hope everyone will bring their family and friends to The Freeman Stage at Bayside to see this incredible show.”

Regular weekly performances at The Freeman Stage will commence on June 15 with a performance by the Mid-Atlantic Symphony and the United States Air Force Blue Steel Band and will continue throughout the year.

To celebrate The Freeman Stage’s fifth season, there will be five special concert events throughout the summer, including Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes, Josh Tesh, Darius Rucker, Marvin Hamlisch, and The Midtown Men. All performances, except Darius Rucker, are general admission seating. Visiting patrons should provide their own seating.

The Freeman Stage is located in the Bayside community at the intersections of Routes 54 & 20 in Selbyville, Del. The Freeman Stage is a program of the Joshua M. Freeman Foundation, who partners to present memorable performances and provide inspired arts education for all.
