Once Upon a Circus

Coconut Telegraph

Sailor Circus, known worldwide as “The Greatest ‘Little’ Show on Earth,” will delight audiences with its 68th annual spring performance Once Upon a Circus, centered around fairy tales and timeless stories coming to life. The show will feature new acts and other acts that have not been performed for several years including the aerial cradle, shoot thru ladder and low casting. The youth circus artists range from ages 8 to 18 and have been practicing their routines for months. Once Upon a Circus is an ambitious production that uses over 800 costumes and music from many beloved animated classics, including Cinderella, Fantasia and Beauty and the Beast. The lessons learned in fairy tales parallel those learned throughout the circus training process, extending beyond the storybooks and into the arena.
