Ferdinand the Magnificent!
Ferdinand the Magnificent, created and performed by Nick Trotter, will be playing at the Arcata Playhouse on March 19th at 2:00 p.m. Also, in a special performance in Cave Junction, Oregon on Friday, March 24th!
A pink Spandex body suit. A green bowtie. A diaper... with a bell. A rather... absurd nose. A trip through the universe. A quest for love.
These are all that Ferdinand has, or knows, or is... until he meets friends along the way. Ferdinand lives in an intensely musical world and puppetry, juggling, slapstick and song are all part of the journey. Join this wild, witty, irreverent Clown on his mystical, musical trip through space and time, and play along as he encounters the Bizarre, the Fantastical, the Absurd... and perhaps even the Magnificent!

My body is music! So is love. And so are Skittles, if you think about it.
I have routines that can vary from 5 to 60 minutes long, and I'll play anywhere. I will come to your parties and private events! There's a guy who does my booking. You can contact him here.
