Echoes They Left Behind Show!

Saturday October 26th, Doors 6:30pm, Show at 7pm

Birds Eye View Circus invites you to a show for all ages, Echoes They Left Behind. This show will explore stories of ghost encounters, paranormal experiences, campfire tales, real life tales of terror, ghost sightings and more. A series of group and solo acts that use our unique blend of physical storytelling to delight, amaze, and maybe even scare you into belief. Acts feature aerial acrobatics, tightwire, live theater and dance by our students, choreographed by our instructors, with special guests THE Modern Dance Co.

*Please Note* While this show is all ages, we will be exploring themes that involve death, ghosts, monsters, and the after life, parent supervision is advised.
