There will be 30-plus shows over three weeks in the intimate red-and-white striped tent, set up in the Amphitheatre parking lot, through January 5, 2020.
Guests can expect to be transported back in time to the center ring of a centuries- old tradition, but one that has been reinvented for the next generation.
An amazing assortment of performers includes a new cast featuring Guinness World Record holder Brad Weston (golf juggling and sword walking), Libby Green (puppeteer), Derileisy Ramos (aerialist), Manuel and Ilenay Acosta (duo rola bola and duo straps), Chase Culp (comedy) and Heather Blount-Elliott (hula hoops and fire). “Broadway” Brian Pollock (Flea Circus Ringleader) also will be returning with some amazing new content for the pre-show hour.
The traveling troupe of performers has had successful stints in the St. Augustine/Jacksonville market on three separate visits since January 2018, totaling more than 25,000 attendees over 55 shows, most of which have been sellouts. The upcoming shows are projected to be complete sellouts, including “Holiday Family Packs” for shows on Christmas Day, during Christmas week and on New Year’s Day.
Tickets: General Admission tickets are $25 for adults and $15 for youth under age 12. Babes in arms are free with a paying adult (24 months and younger). Premium Reserved seating is priced from $35 to $45. Please visit www.Liveyourcircusdream.com
Venardos Circus proudly features its own custom-made big-top, a classic red-and-white striped tent, with an intimate feel and limited seating. The circus performers also are the crew in this traveling tour who are completely self-contained, much like the original circus tradition. There are no animals in Venardos Circus.
All attendees can park for free in the Amphitheatre parking lot and walk a short distance to the tent. An interactive pre-show party begins one hour before each show time with opportunities to meet the cast, snap selfies and play games. Classic circus treats like popcorn, nachos, fresh-made cotton candy and natural pink lemonade and more are available. The main event lasts approximately 90 minutes, with a brief intermission.
