Lone Star Circus Celebrates 10th Anniversary with All-New Holiday Show La Fête

Presented by Dallas Children’s Theater December 27, 2016 – January 1, 2017


A circus is certainly one of the greatest celebrations ever and Dallas’ very own Lone Star Circus is inviting you to join them for an all-new show that will both celebrate their tenth birthday AND ring in the New Year in style.  That’s right – it’s a party (La Fête); it’s an amazing show filled with circus acts from around the world that are making their first appearance ever here in Dallas!

Presented by Dallas Children’s Theater, Lone Star Circus® returns to the season lineup by popular demand with an ALL-NEW holiday show that’s just plain fun. Must see acts from this year’s extravaganza include:

•    The magnificent hand balancing of Christian Stoinev, a 2014 finalist of NBC’s “America’s Got Talent”
•    The spellbinding and elegant quick-change act of Evgeny Vasilenko and Anna Zgurovskaya
•    The mesmerizing and thrilling juggling of “The Red Harlequin,” Vladimir Tsarkov
•    The electrifying hand-to-hand balancing of AcroDuo
•    The energizing and beautiful Anna Stankus and her twirling hula hoops
•    The joyous and colorful canine antics of The Pompeyo Family and their Amazing Rescue Dogs
•    The striking and balletic aerial choreography of the graceful Abigail Munn
•    The breathtaking hand balancing and contortion of Sasha Pivaral
•    The delightful, double aerial hoop of Circus 2-Wins

Local clown favorites Slappy and Monday (married duo Tiffany Riley and Dick Monday) will be on hand to add their own brand of funny and BJ Cleveland, Dallas/Fort Worth’s longtime fixture in the theatrical and TV community, will serve as Circus Ringmaster.

Lone Star Circus’ Founder and Creative Director Fanny Kerwich looks forward to the production of “La Fête,” saying, “This year marks ten years of working with each other and creating this intimate, joyful circus for Dallas/Fort Worth. It’s ten years of love.” An eighth generation circus performer, Kerwich brought her knowledge of circus arts to the Metroplex in 2006 and is instrumental in the emerging local circus movement. She adds, “Circus touches so many lives. It has no boundaries and is a lesson of humanity. It instills life’s great values…compassion, courage, respect, commitment and determination. I look forward to celebrating and sharing Lone Star Circus with everyone.”
