Hilarious Comedy and High-Flying Circus: Family Fun at the Holland in May


BELLEFONTAINE, Ohio – The Holland Theatre is capping its 2023-24 Holland Presents season with two shows that promise fun for all ages.

Get ready for a night of laughs when improv comedy troop Scriptless in Seattle takes the stage on Saturday, May 4, at 7:30 p.m. Reminiscent of Whose Line Is It Anyway? the group’s hilarious sketches, improvised musicals, game shows, film noir, and more are created on the fly with audience input. No two shows are ever the same, ensuring an evening filled with surprises, laughter, and memorable moments.

The month continues with The Great Dubois on Saturday, May 11. This high-energy circus show includes incredible feats of juggling, unicycling, aerial stunts, and magic. As seen in the hit movie The Greatest Showman, it is the most thrilling two-person circus show you’ll ever experience! This event is generously sponsored by V-Teck Communications.

Built in 1931 in downtown Bellefontaine, the Holland is the nation’s only atmospheric Dutch theater. The building had fallen into disrepair in the 1990s after being converted into a cineplex but was saved from demolition when a local teacher and students took an interest in the structure. Buoyed by community support and government and private grants, the theater completed a multimillion-dollar restoration in 2019 and today is a vibrant nonprofit center for the performing arts.
