Step right up! The circus is coming to town
The "Big Top" will once again be visible in the area as Circus Vargas comes to town with death-defying aerial acts, jugglers and the "Globe of Death;" awe-inspiring feats of skill that keep audiences gasping and gripping their seats. For those who long to once again experience the thrill of walking though massive tent flaps, laugh with clowns, watch the sights of the center ring, hear the ringmaster summon acts of wonder and comedy and become lost in the world of circus, this is your chance. For others who have never known the sights, smells and bravado of a circus, don't miss this chance.
This exciting edition of Circus Vargas takes the audience on an artistic journey, encompassing the cultures of the world, elegantly achieved through a series of circus vignettes depicting the experiences, memories and vision of a traveling circus performer. Talented aerialists and acrobats will bring their interpretation of the art of circus, needing no translation, transcending all language, age and cultural barriers.
Prior to every show, Host & Hostess Jon & Laura Weiss welcome the audience and invite children of all ages into center ring for a tutorial of what life is like under the Big Top! Join the fun with Jon as he guides everyone on a crash course in circus skills such as juggling, feather balancing and hula-hooping!
