Madame Grey's Cirkus Returns!

Don’t miss our main event Saturday night!

Madame Grey is an old soul who’s young at heart (and she never met a juggler she didn’t like) Equal parts vaudeville and cirkus queen, with a touch of modern sass.

What does the Madame have in store for you? An evening of pure entertainment, featuring the dangerous, the hilarious and the best the cirque community has to offer- with performers both local and far-flung coming together to make this one-of-a-kind high-flying mind-defying skill show!
