We’ve had the scoop on this event now for months…so we’re a bit excited to get to see this Big Tent going up today on Yucca Street near the Railway Museum!
Meet Matt Morgan and his crew of performers who will be putting on this Tricks & Treats Halloween Spooktacular for a 4-day run of shows beginning this Thursday, October 19th at 7:30 and running through Sunday October 22nd, with both matinees and evening shows on the weekend.
Not only will there be acrobats, aerialists, jugglers and laughs at this human-only big tent show, they’ll have four of our local youths from Dance Etc. performing with them at each and every performance!
Shows are family-friendly and run for 90 minutes with a brief intermission. Food is provided by Chilly Jilly’z and anyone who shows up in costume gets a FREE popcorn. Also, adult beverages (wine and beer) will be available at the evening performances.
And another added bonus – the Railway Museum will be open and doing specially timed train runs during the days as well!
Matt studied and worked with Ringling Brother’s starting in 1997 and has done countless shows all over the world. His partners have a diverse background, including juggler and technical expert Dario Vazquez who is a 5th generation circus performer.
So why is this a ‘World Premier’? Because Matt says that this is their first full performance where they’ve produced everything together with this tent as their venture – The Petite Palace! You’ve got to love having the gumption to go it on your own…
Tickets and show times are available online HERE before the show at a reduced cost, and also at the door.
And…Matt tells us that on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings they’ll be rehearsing so you can even stick your nose in the door and see what’s up! Plus there’s this preview we’ve had for ya below too. We’ll be there for sure this weekend and hope to see you too!
