That Circus Show!
Sit back and enjoy this variety showcase of classic circus through a modern lens. Full of cheeky humor, daring stunts, and acts we guarantee you’ve never seen: Trapeze mimes, handstand magic, unique aerial arts, hula-hoopers on roller skates, feats of unnatural strength, whip cracking, sassy lions, and so much more!
Join our ringmaster as he introduces you to a world of circus magic. His whimsical banter will guide you on this journey of joy, wonder, and amazement! Plus, he has a few of his own tricks up his sleeves...
Show of Hands
A dramatic show of strength and prowess. He will start with some floor work, then some hand balances on one cane, then two, then one cane taller than the other, and finally the canes at their maximum height with various handstand shapes and moves.
Talking is Overrated
Laura & Danielle
Much like children, Mimes exaggerate their thoughts, emotions, and desires to the fullest. This piece is no different. When the music strikes the mimes must choose to share, steal, or walk away. The rest you will have to come see to find out.
That's the Way I Like It
This mesmerizing maiden is sure to bring a smile to your face in this playful and extra
funk-ified aerial hoop act. And that's the way she likes it!

Savanna & Reno
Savanna is a muggle whose soul is being crushed by the Man and the square life. Luckily, free spirited circus freak Reno happens to notice she needs a little pick-me-up to spark the inner child that yearns to play and be free. Will she give into the circus inspiration? Tune in to find out!
15 Minute Intermission
Help yourselves to concessions available in the theater lobby - popcorn, candy, and drinks are the best accompaniments to a circus show!
The Bottom Line
Adam & Sol Aura
What do circus bears do in the after hours? Wouldn't you like to know! This furry professional will show you exactly how bears like to unwind after a long day of work. Just make sure you can keep up, because this is a wild animal that like to have F-U-N!
Kimmie & Stacey Diamond
The rootin'-est tootin'-est most adorable sweethearts you've ever laid eyes on! These lollipop ladies will satisfy your sweet tooth and wow your senses with incredible feats of flexibility, strength, and grace. Hope you've got a good dentist because this duo is so sweet it'll give you a cavity!
Rollin’ in Technicolor
The digital age presents a world of technicolor at our fingertips, and this piece electro-swing skates into it! Luminous circles of color multiply, divide, and glide in harmony with their 8 wheeled companions below. This innovative performance expands on fundamental geometries for a refreshing twist on circus arts.
Selysa Love & Chris
A riveting performance by two acrobats who have definitely gotten enough sleep. Moony is shuffled, slung, and catapulted around stage by Sunny as they captivate with jaw dropping stunts. Okay fine, maybe only one of them is well rested. Do you think the audience will notice?

About the Venue
The Historic Colonial Theatre
This local performing arts theater has been around since the early 1940's, and has been cared for by the Santillan family for generations. Much of the theater has been preserved to its original charm. The atmosphere is grand, yet comforting. As soon as we saw it, we knew this was the perfect place for That Circus Show - appreciating vintage craft through a modern lens.
For decades, The Colonial Theatre has been a Sacramento community hub for the performing arts, from live theater, music, and film, to pro wrestling and boxing!
