Jongleur De Notre Dame

Grades PK-5

Based on a French Medieval Legend and then written down in a book in 1901 by Anatole France. In this performance the Juggler is dressed as a Jester and tells the story of a young orphan named Jaque who after a very hard life becomes the King of the Fools and gives his only gift-his talent, to others! This was the inspiration for the very popular children’s book: The Clown of God by Tomie dePaola!
