About this show

Circus Contraption announces the imminent return of its Grand American Traveling Dime Museum! For a modest admission you will be privy to a vast collection of exhibits guaranteed to educate and entertain. Featuring Miracles of Man and of Nature, Curiosities of the Past and Marvels of the Modern Age. This full-circus show features live aerial acts, acrobatics, juggling, dance, physical comedy and original circus music. A veritable Confectionery of exquisite Novelties awaits the genteel Visitor: * Fanciful Fauna Formations! * Audacious Dancing Girls! * Masterly Aerial Feats! * Acrobatics both fiendish and melancholy! * And as always, outlandishly original Musical Arrangements of the First Quality, performed by the unparalleled Circus Contraption Orchestra! Designed to stimulate all aspects of the Human Organism, the Museum offers a unique experience for every constitution. Circus Contraption's Grand American Traveling Dime Museum wowed audiences in New York City, San Francisco and Seattle in 2004 and 2005. Seattle's own one-ring Circus and pre-eminent Amusement Institution has earned the acclaim of critics on both coasts: * "...moments of pure genius. DON'T MISS!" - TimeOutNY * One of the "Best of 2005" new theater shows. - The L Magazine * "... chances to see shows this fun come along rarely at best." * " impressive array of talent, discipline and ingenuity." Seattle Post-Intelligencer * "With great finesse and greater theatrical timing, the troupe evokes the humor and wonder of... an earlier time." - San Francisco Weekly All shows contain MATURE CONTENT and may be unsuitable for children 12 and under. Parental discretion is advised. Advance ticket purchase is advised due to the likelihood of sell-out performances. NOTE: A special "NYC Variety Cabaret" featuring local performers along with Circus Contraption will take place instead of the regular Dime Museum show on Saturday September 9 at 8 pm. The show will also feature the real-life wedding of Contraption musician/ songster Shmootzi the Clod!
