If someone in the Twin Cities wanted to run away and join the circus, they wouldn’t have to go far, as Circus Juventas is in St. Paul. Since 1995, they have been training students in the art of acrobatics under the big top. Their summertime showcase invites audiences to 1890s Paris, as Jules Verne and H.G. Wells take a trip together via hot air balloon and submarine. Along the way there will be sci-fi fantasy, steampunk fashion, sky pirates, and appearances from Dr. Moreau and Captain Nemo. Watch as these daredevils navigate ropes, giant wheels, and seesaws. Find tickets and more info at circusjuventas.org.
