Magic Circle Mime Company

Magic Circle Mime Company is regarded as one of today’s premier family attractions. Its highly acclaimed performances, which unite the concert orchestra with visual theater, are consistently praised for imaginative and innovative content.

Magic Circle Mime Company performs with nearly every major orchestra in North America and has performed on numerous occasions with the symphony orchestras of Atlanta, Detroit, Chicago, Montreal, St. Louis, Seattle, Toronto, Vancouver and Winnipeg; the Cleveland Orchestra, Minnesota Orchestra and Philadelphia Orchestra, and on more than a dozen occasions at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts with the National Symphony Orchestra. 

Magic Circle Mime Company also has a growing reputation outside North America. The troupe has performed with orchestras in Australia, China, Colombia, Japan, Hong Kong, Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore, Spain and Taiwan. International festival appearances include the International Children's Festivals of Beijing, Shanghai and Taiwan. In 2018, the company performed for the first time in Denmark with the Aalborg and Aarhus symphony orchestras.

Magic Circle Mime Company is the creative partnership of Maggie Petersen and Douglas MacIntyre. Both artists have backgrounds in theater and instrumental music, and have used that training to create their highly regarded programs. The latest production, “Orchestra from Planet X,” explores the many influences that helped create the music of the New World.
