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 swings into action with new dates, a new permanent location in Grand Center, and a new production, The Case of the Missing Bellhop, a mystery show featuring circus tricks.
St. Louis’ hometown circus is set to move prior to its upcoming season – but only a half block away. Previously, the circus took place on the lot next to Powell Hall. But last year, Circus Flora partnered with the Kranzberg Arts Foundation to help develop a permanent site for the circus.
There's a lot more change happening at Circus Flora: a new site for our Big Top, new office space, and some very exciting new productions on the horizon. Though this is keeping us all very busy, it can also be important to step back once in a while and keep a perspective on why we are doing what we are doing.
But big changes are coming for the homegrown circus in 2018. Circus Flora is finally getting a home of its own — a vacant lot one just a block to the southwest of Powell Hall in Grand Center. And that more permanent solution means the circus no longer has to avoid the symphony's spring shows; it now plans to kick off its season in April.
