For 72 years, students involved with the Circus Arts Conservatory’s Sailor Circus program have amazed audiences with a thrilling spectacle of youth circus arts. In “A Night at the Movies,” audiences can expect to see incredible youth circus artists flip, fly and soar to new heights while enjoying the music and vibe of popular films from throughout the decades and a variety of genres. Circus fans of all ages will enjoy acts including the Flying Trapeze, Cloudswing, Acrobatic Roller Skating, Aerial Lyra, Rolla Bolla Adagio, Roman Rings – CAC founder and vice president Dolly Jacobs’ signature act, High Wire, Aerial Silks, and more. Audiences will also get to see acts that have been reintroduced, such as the Trampoline Wall and Dance Trapeze. In addition to memorable movie music, audiences will enjoy visual elements from the chosen films, which run the gamut from older classics, movie musicals, animated, science fiction, action/adventure, and superhero films.
While the pandemic has impacted available audience capacity, it has also served as the catalyst for the CAC to add an affordable digital option, which will mean community members and circus fans from around town and the world will be able to enjoy “A Night at the Movies” from the best seats in the house – whether their house or in the Sailor Circus Arena.
“A Night at the Movies” runs from Thursday, April 29 through Sunday, May 2 in the Sailor Circus Arena (2075 Bahia Vista, Sarasota). Showtimes are 7 p.m. on Thursday and Friday, 2 and 7 p.m. on Saturday, and 1 and 6 p.m. on Sunday. Live tickets are $20-$30, and digital tickets – which will be available starting May 14 – are $25; go to circusarts.org or call the Box Office at 941-355-9805.
