"Memories of Mom"
A Mother's Day Circus Spectacular

in which our ringmaster reminisces
on his boyhood phantasmagoria
in the age of Victoria

Treat your Mother to a night at the theater with our circus family, your family circus, and the finest world-chamber ensemble in Free Cascadia.

at The Alberta Rose Theatre
3000 NE Alberta St

Minors welcome if accompanied by adults

Step right up and grab a seat as our comic tale of quick-witted kids and dastardly developers threads its way through jaw-dropping feats of acrobatics, aerial dance, juggling, contortion, and disciplines beyond naming. The celebrated 3 Leg Torso provides a live soundtrack - equal parts ravishing melodies and toe-tapping rhythms played on violin, accordion, bass, and percussion.

Immortal impresario William Batty was a kid once, too. He even had a mother once! Played by Noah Mickens in the present day, and Kylee Wegner in the 1800s, Batty shares a story about his days as a plucky youth in the Victorian slums, scraping out a living on the street with his ailing actress mother and his band of boy adventurers! We shall countenance no eye un-teared, no belly un-ached, and no rest till the whole of the world has been entertained!

Straight from the Wild West, where life is cheap and courage is costly, Leapin' Louie Lichtenstein is never without a spare dollar. With his lasso from El Paso and a bullwhip that even Wyatt Earp couldn't Dodge, this buckaroo buffoon is like sand beneath the chaps of our wrathful ringmaster. Mr. Lichtenstein was recently awarded the title of Best Comedy Roper at the 2007 Will Rogers Expo of the Wild West Arts Club, Claremore, Oklahoma; and the Prix d'Or, 1st Prize at the Vevey International Festival des Artistes de la Rue in Vevey, Switzerland.
