News Release

Charlie Chaplin's The Circus Screened at Henderson Pavilion
Henderson Symphony Orchestra provides live orchestral accompaniment

May 12, 2014



The Henderson Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of conductor Taras Krysa, presents a live orchestral screening of Charlie Chaplin’s The Circus at 8:30 p.m. on Saturday, June 7 at the Henderson Pavilion, 200 S. Green Valley Pkwy. Kid Auto Races at Venice, a 6-minute short featuring the Little Tramp for the first time, opens the show. Tickets are $10.


The screening revisits the 1928 comedic masterpiece, with a new musical score from the 1969 re-release. The updated soundtrack was written by Chaplin later in life to accompany the film for the new theatrical premiere, and will be performed by the Henderson Symphony Orchestra as part of the 70-minute presentation.


The Circus is one of the last motion pictures of the silent film era. The high-flying comedy follows the blunders of the Little Tramp as a circus employee. With his whirlwind of jokes and show-stopping stunts, he quickly becomes the main attraction without knowing it, while falling in love with the ringmaster’s daughter.
