The Strong (wo)Men

Their strength is unbelievable. Their French accents even worse. Yes! they can lift that plank and set it up for the ballerinas to dance upon. But who is the strongest? ‘Surely it is zis one, noh noh! it is surely ze ozer one!’ Comedy and acrobatics combine in act. Can be performed as a 4 minute stage act but best as a roving performance involving the kids in the audience as they roam around setting up their plank.
