TOM TARRANT – DOYLE TIMES
“We perform traditional circus arts with a hint of magic.”
Beginning this weekend, Doyle audiences can feel the magic up close. The Circus of Impossible Things is making its way to Doyle.
The Circus of Impossible Things provides spine-tingling chills and death-defying acrobatics. Audiences will be treated to an evening of creepy clowns, bawdy humor, illusionists, burlesque elements, and dance, all wrapped in a package of fantastic costumes and special effects.
The show will be held at the winery festival grounds on Highway 4. Tickets begin at $10, and showtimes are 7:30 p.m. on weekdays, 6:30 and 9:30 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
As a child, Circus creator Alonzo Beranek traveled throughout Russia with the Baba Yaga Circus. When his family moved to the United States, he worked as a rodeo clown, traveling throughout the American West. Longing to return to his circus roots, he founded Impossible Things in 2013.
Its international cast typically rehearses two to three hours a day and performs at venues across the United States eleven months out of the year. But if you get a sense of déjà vu when watching a show, it could be because you’ve seen the performers right here, in Doyle. Cast members typically work multiple jobs within the circus in addition to performing, working in vendor booths, setting up tents, driving circus trucks, and ushering.
Unlike traditional circuses, all Impossible Things performers are human. This astonishing show has a strict “no-animal policy.”
“Time is a circus, always packing up and moving away,” said Beranek. “So, don’t miss Impossible Things. We’ll be here all week, and then… we vanish.”
