OVERBOARD! is Cannonball’s nightly offering of music, cabaret, sideshow, circus, storytelling, strange anthems to toaster ovens, and ecstatic participatory rituals that will be sure to be the perfect end to your night at the Fringe. OVERBOARD! takes place in the beautiful Maas Garden Bar, one of Philly’s ‘best-kept secrets,’ where there’s room to have a drink with a friend, sidle up to the stage, or enjoy a pizza from the wood-fired oven (available on certain nights).
OVERBOARD! is presented as part of Cannonball Festival, a satellite festival produced by Almanac Dance Circus Theatre and the Maas Building featuring over 150 events and performances of 24 original shows across 2 performance spaces and 21 days. Learn more at cannonballfestival.org.
