This Week in the Circus District

Tomorrow (7/14), enjoy hilarity and bewilderment at Happenstance Theater’s PREPOSTEROUS: A Happenstance Clown Circus, a special performance at 10 a.m. at the National Theatre. This show draws from easily parodied gems of traditional circus with outlandish characters and brilliant physical comedy. Reserve your FREE tickets at this link.

The International Jugglers Association’s 71st Annual Festival is NEXT WEEK (7/16-22) in Springfield, Massachusetts. Visit the festival web site for a long list of reasons — workshops, gala shows, late-night shows, games, competitions, prop vendors, hundreds of new juggling friends — to attend this year’s convenient east coast location.

TSNY-DC is excited to present its next student and staff showcases next Friday (7/20) at 8 p.m. See high-flying intermediate level trapeze, the next generation of circus stars from the school’s advanced camp program, skilled aerial acts and even some roaming jugglers before the show. Visit their website, click ‘Sign Up For a Class,’ then change the dropdown menu to ‘All Classes’ and ‘July 20’ to find tickets.

The Tricksters, a marvelous blend of sideshow and magic by Harley Newman and David London, is running through tomorrow (7/14) and Sunday (7/15) at the Baltimore Theatre Project. You can get half price tickets with code HALFOFF at this link.
