Circus Flora has a new season, a new permanent home, but an old problem: Tim is trying to join the act...again! This time, Tim tries his hand at pig training, trapeze dancing, and trampoline acrobatics. As Tim seeks to earn a place in the Circus Flora family, he meets a few folks who are creating community in our area.
With each Circus Flora season comes a new theatrical storyline and brand-new performances. This year, the show is called "The Case of the Missing Bellhop," and it features a high-flying trapeze artist, daredevil stunt performers and the St. Louis Arches — a troupe of child acrobats.
