A Kensington elementary school has found the one way to get kids to pay attention to its lesson plan — send in the clowns!
PS 130 hosted Brighton Beach’s own Holiday Circus — a roving band of rag-tag magicians, performers, and clowns who put on a special Christmas-themed show.
“It was live-action and fast moving, so it just appealed to the kids,” said Andrew Pantillo, a kindergarten teacher who also runs its events. “It gave them a chance to see clowns and performers up close.”
The show is a circus-like extravaganza set in Santa’s workshop — but this isn’t your everyday St. Nick.
“Santa was doing magic tricks,” said Pantillo. “And he was like the MC of the show. But he was also this European-style, old-fashioned Santa Claus.”

Holiday Circus performs at the Millennium Theater in Brighton Beach — but the event at the school was a special performance for the kindergartners, and first and second graders.
