A St. Louis Tradition for Over 30 Years!
Circus Flora is a Theater Company, specializing in one-ring circus production, based on the focused energy of modern and traditional circus arts. Our goal is to create a truly American circus, with a narrative that engages audience members personally and emotionally, and physical feats that are inspirational. The world class company of Circus Flora becomes a family, preserving classical European circus traditions while incorporating innovative techniques and original new artists.
Each year, our show spends one month under the Big Top – but it takes more than a year to prepare. Every season brings new opportunities, new challenges, and new memories. The Case of the Missing Bellhop sprang to life during a time of great change for Circus Flora, with our new permanent home and our earlier season. It’s my pleasure to share with our friends and fans this behind-the-scenes glimpse into our process.
The venerable Circus Flora brings fresh acts, a sparkling new lead character and a charming story with a touch of Wes Anderson whimsy to its new permanent home in Grand Center. The result is a delightfully entertaining and fun to follow along mystery.
