John Turner, “Smoot" of Mump & Smoot, will run for public office, resigning his position as Artistic Director of The Manitoulin Conservatory for Creation and Performance.
“I’m tired of people calling the lying and cheating politicians clowns! They are fake clowns at best. I want to bring some honesty and humanity to the political theatre” states Turner.
One of these fakers even has the audacity to don the traditional ORANGE HAIR! Enough is enough!” laments Turner. “The domination of fake clowns must end! “
“Let’s see what a REAL CLOWN can do!” “Real clowns now!”
"I'm not running for office, but I am asking you to support this summer's clown training program at the MCCP.”
Help us raise $5000 for our summer program by supporting our "April Fool’s" campaign!
With no government funding for our summer program, donations from supporters like you help keep tuitions low and provide scholarships to those who wouldn’t otherwise be able to participate.
By making a tax-deductible donation to our “April Fool’s” fundraising campaign, you will be supporting this summer’s training program on Manitoulin Island, which includes:
• Thirteen weeks of classes, ranging from introductory to advanced levels of training
• Ten courses, representing 550 total hours of training
• Up to 185 students
We are grateful for every donation and none is too small. Every amount helps the MCCP bring clowns into the world!
MCCP alumni are spreading humour, creativity, and play around the world, inspiring others with their performance, dance, music, teaching, directing, counselling, and more.
