Come one, come all when the St. Augustine Amphitheatre welcomes the Big Top on select dates January 24 through February 10, 2018. when the Venardos Circus makes the Amphitheatre its’ home! Created by former Ringling Bros. Ringmaster Kevin Venardos (veh-NARR-dos), the Venardos Circus wraps world-class circus acts into a Broadway Musical-style format that is called “the American Circus with the heart of a Broadway Show”. The group recently completed a series of shows in Las Vegas and arrives in St. Augustine with aerialists, acrobats, comedians, juggling, balancing, daredevilry and performers hailing from around the world. The Broadway-style singing and dancing adds another level of intrigue to the performance.
The Circus features its’ own custom-made big-top, a classic red and white striped tent, with an intimate feel and seating for up to 300 guests. The tent will be set up in the parking area of the St. Augustine Amphitheatre, adjacent to the larger venue.
An interactive pre-show party takes place one hour before show time with opportunities to meet the cast, snap selfies, and play games. The main event lasts approximately 90 minutes, with a brief intermission.
Shows run Wednesday through Sunday for the entire engagement, with multiple show times on weekends.
