VERO BEACH – If you haven’t caught a performance of the 36th Annual Vero Beach Aerial Antics Circus – “A Very Vegas Circus” – tonight is your last chance.
The final performance will be held at 7 p.m. in the gymnasium of Oslo Middle School, a change up from the last several years, when the circus was held at St. Edward’s. The four-day circus has featured more than 250 children who have taken to the air, weaving their bodies through panels of cloth and lengths of rope suspended from the ceiling.
This year’s “Very Vegas” circus features musical selections ranging from classics Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra to more contemporary artists, such as the late-Michael Jackson and others who are currently performing in Las Vegas.
“We’ve used a lot of Elvis music,” organizer Patty Howard said. “We’ve mixed it up a lot.”
Despite the Aerial Antics Circus’s Vegas theme, Howard said the show is definitely family – and kid – friendly.
“There are no showgirls,” she said.
Admission to the circus is a requested donation, though no one is turned away if they don’t pay. This year’s admission suggestion is $5 for adults and $4 for children and seniors.
The admission donations help to offset the costs associated with the show, but do not cover it all.
All alumni of the Aerial Antics Circus are encouraged to call Howard to let her know they will be attending Saturday for special recognition.
Circus attendees are encouraged to “purchase” tickets in advance at Leisure Square, the Vero Beach Community Center or Riverside Racquet Complex – or at the door.
