VIP: $35 (front middle 3 rows)
At the Door
GA: $35 (cash, Venmo/PayPal)
How long is the show?
The show starts at 8pm and we expect the show to run until 9:30pm, so we're aiming for the experience to be around an hour and a half. But, given that this is live entertainment, we cannot guarantee an end time. There will be a 15 minute intermission in the middle of the show.
Is it family friendly?
Yes! We consider the show rated PG.
Will there be food there?
The Colonial Theatre has a concession stand in the lobby with classic theater snacks - popcorn, soda, etc. No outside food/drinks will be allowed in the theatre, so we recommend grabbing dinner before the show - there are a lot of great food places within walking distance of the theater!
What's the seating situation?
The Colonial is a full theater with rows of seats - with the exception of the VIP section, all the seating is first-come, first-serve.
Pandemic Safety Information
The venue does not require proof of vaccination, but we ask that everyone please wear a mask. The show is indoors, and extra protection can't hurt! All performers will be taking rapid tests the day of the show.
Should I dress up?
YES!! We want this to be an engaging community experience, so wear all your best circus gear (or however else you want to express yourself)! We can't wait to see your outfits!
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!
