The Circus Flora Board of Directors is thrilled to announce two major milestones for the organization: the naming of a new Managing Director, Karen Shoulders, and the commitment to a 34th season of world-class magic.
For more than 30 years, Circus Flora, a one-ring circus that makes St. Louis its home, has offered a circus show that’s best described as live theater. It’s an intimate setting that is in stark contrast to the images some people might conjure of the large Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus which performed for the last time 10 months ago.
In just over three weeks, Circus Flora unveils its brand-new show under the Big Top in Grand Center. Audiences will be immersed in The Case of the Missing Bellhop, an intriguing whodunit with a cast of characters ranging from a determined detective to a troupe of trained pigs.
Circus Flora, a longtime St. Louis institution and family tradition, has found its new and permanent home, and its annual show will move from June to earlier in the spring, the circus announced Tuesday.
