This dazzling family spectacle, full of adventure, comedy and excitement, dares us to leap into the circus ring and feel the thrill and timelessness of this fantastical art form. Overflowing with theatricality and inspired by modern circus, 42FT showcases a galloping mechanical horse, a rotating tent frame, strongmen, acrobats and aerialists, and feats of wonder that will have you gasping in awe. Step right up, ladies and gents, boys and girls, to see the enchanted world of gears and canvas, pulleys and sawdust, magic and fun! See the show The New York Times called, “engrossingly entertaining,” TimeOut New York described as, “a spectacular ride,” and the Omaha World-Herald catalogued as full of “wit, whimsey and wonder.” Tickets: https://uvu.universitytickets.com/w/event.aspx?id=2302&utm_source=calendar&utm_medium=ticketing&utm_campaign=cirque&utm_term=organic&utm_content=krcl
