Cleveland Public Theatre

Cleveland, OH (Gordon Square)
Professional Theatre

Created by and Co-produced with Crooked River Circus

December 1 - December 11, 2022

Show Description:

Cleveland's home-grown circus company, the Crooked River Circus, brings you a night of circus and acrobatic fun, delight, foolishness, and games in this piece that is a nod to some of the most cherished characters and stories of the season that include Scrooge's grand-nephew, the Christmas Elves formerly of Rivendell, Max the Reindeer, Rudolph the dog, Alien Frogs, and those lovesick fools from the Magi as they unite to destroy Christmas while flying high on trapeze, spinning and performing death-defying drops on aerial silks and corde lisse, and showing off feats of flexibility and precision on straps, pole, hoops, partner acrobatics and so much more. Will Christmas be saved? Each night, the audience will decide if they want to give in to the “big Eastern syndicate,” or celebrate Saturnalia style.
