Under the big top, over the rainbow…and definitely not in Kansas anymore. This summer, Circus Juventas lands smack in the middle of east meets west, north meets south. A Cirque du Soleil-inspired fantasy awaits, including an emerald-green city guarded by zany gatekeepers. Experience the wrath of wicked witches, gravity-defying castle guards leaping the keep, the boundless spectacle of aerial monkey attacks, and most wondrous of all: a wizard to remind us that there is no place like home.
Circus Juventas is a non-profit youth performing arts circus school based in Saint Paul.
