A Jungle Adventure

06:30 pm to 07:30 pm on May 26
Buskirk-Chumley Theater
https://bctboxoffice.org/event/a-jungle-adventure/

Follow an intrepid explorer on an adventure through the jungle and discover wonderful and weird circus creatures. You will see animals fly through the air, swing from trees, tumble, and flip.

Our jungle explorer experiences many ups and downs and twists and turns along the way. There will be monkeys in a tree made of silk, birds flying on hoops, jumping and flipping frogs, spiders on webs, and jaguars on a trampoline.

The Stage Flight Circus Arts studio will present aerial performances, feats of strength, and beautiful choreography. This performance will be filled with action, music, and lights to delight the senses and is suitable for all ages.
