To Be Or What To Be
To Be Or What To Be

In the tradition of the great travelling clowns of Europe, Frank Ozo charms and enthrals children of all ages with his hilarious antics and cheeky wit. 

To Be or What To Be begins with Frank having misplaced his magician’s hat. A search ensues and Frank looks for it in his magic hat box. Hat after hat is produced out of this seemingly empty box but none of these are his magician’s hat. What is a magician to do without his magic hat?

Frank’s search for his elusive magician’s hat takes the audience on a journey of choices and responsibilities while tackling the age old question of what to be when you grow up.

Variety is the word that best describes this very funny vaudeville style show. Frank juggles balls, scarves and hats and has objects appear and disappear right before your eyes.

Puppets also feature with a hilarious sequence involving the famous characters, Punch and Judy. Frustrated that he can’t find the perfect job, Mr Punch has an unexpected encounter with a wayward baby crocodile. It is this exciting adventure which leads him to discover his true vocation. Mr Punch becomes head of reptile conservation at the local zoo, illustrating that everyone is good at something.

Using magic, mime, laughter, songs and the element of surprise, Frank explores issues such as ethics, safety, career choices and problem solving with his audience.
