The Bindlestiff Family Cirkus, a world-traveling troupe known for its blend of vaudeville, circus, and sideshow spectacle, is set to entertain Lebanon County on Saturday, July 8, from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Mt. Gretna Playhouse.
Sponsored by the Mim Enck Charitable Foundation, the circus will offer an evening filled with juggling, acrobatics, hula hooping, contortionism, cyr wheeling, and a dash of magic. The six-member troupe includes a juggler, a contortionist and hula hoop artist, a card trick artist, and a cyr wheel artist, all dedicated to presenting the circus arts at their best.
Founded in 1995, Bindlestiff has brought its unique spin on the grand traditions of the American Circus to stages and festivals worldwide. This event harkens back to the golden age of the traveling American circus, with a contemporary artistic twist.
Tickets for the circus are priced at $15 and $20. Thanks to the generous support of the Mim Enck Charitable Foundation, the ticket prices have been reduced for this event. No special pricing is offered due to the already reduced rates. Part of the ticket revenue for this event will be donated to the local Mt. Gretna Fire Department, which is currently raising funds for a new fire truck.
