The storyline:
An eccentric group of adventure seekers stumble upon a traveling circus in an imaginary Victorian city, far, far-away. SteamCirque’s peculiar protagonist, part magician-
part inventor, attempts to industrialize the circus by incorporating his steam powered mechanical contraptions into the ordinary, typical circus rigging, filling the big top with new, imaginative acrobatic apparatus for the artists to perform their acts.

Creative Inspiration:
Husband and wife team Nelson and Katya Quiroga’s inspiration for this year’s production came to them over a casual dinner with friends. While reminiscing of traveling, their many adventures and how fast time has passed, Nelson remarked suddenly that he’d felt as if he’d been “Around the World in 80 days!” referring to a novel from French author Jules Verne’s collection, Voyages Extraordinaire. That comment and the subsequent conversation that followed morphed into hours of story-telling. “It’s been quite the journey, says Katya. Sometimes we don’t even believe it ourselves.” SteamCirque is inspired by adventure, colored by imagination and brought to life by the amazing cast of Circus Vargas!

  2. My daughter has been pretend playing with ‘silly magic’ recently. She would be thrilled to watch this (she has never watched any before).

    Btw, would it be more fun shared, if the tickets are divided to 2 winners (families) each 2 tickets? Then at least there will be another child that is happy for the free tickets..
