In West Oakland, there is a unique after-school program that trains kids to be clowns. Through circus arts the Prescott Circus Theater teaches physical skills as well as life skills. I took an afternoon to hang out with the clowns as their rehearsed for their big spring showcase and talked to them about the circus. This piece takes listeners on a short trip through a rehearsal as well as interviews with the Artistic Director, a teaching artist, former students and current clowns.
