You’ve seen the Oscars, with the glamour, the lights, the famous stars, and big musical performances. Well, have you ever wondered what happens on that stage the night BEFORE the big show?

Of course, things would go more smoothly if the director wasn’t such a clown. Literally. He does his best to organize the performers, camera operators, and set builders but it’s the trusty assistant director who actually makes it all possible.

Amazing feats of strength, beautiful choreography, and silly clowning create a performance that everyone will enjoy. A wide variety of circus arts will be on display, from triple trapeze to adagio, a group acrobatics number, Chinese pole and several other aerial performances. In addition, lights and music will delight the senses for adults and children alike. Be prepared to laugh at the director’s troubles, be amazed at physical feats, and sigh at graceful performances.

The Stage Flight cast will be led by Clint (as our hapless director) and Hannah Bobzien (the always capable assistant director), owners of the Bloomington-based circus studio, Stage Flight Circus Arts. With 40 combined years of circus performance experience, including world tours, performances on Broadway, and work with the Bloomington High Flyers, the Bobziens are thrilled to share their skills with others who have a passion for circus arts.

Doors will open a half an hour in advance of each performance. Performances are expected to last one hour.
