Dallas Children’s Theater Presents Lone Star Circus’ Charivari

by Mina Frannea

My family recently attended Lone Star Circus’s Charivari at the Dallas Children’s Theater. With a loyal following that grows every year, Lone Star Circus has become a favorite part of the holidays for many in the DFW area. This year was no exception as their new show Charivari promises to be a hit with fans of all ages!

Every year, founder Fanny Kerwich brings together seasoned circus artists such as aerialists, acrobats, trapeze artists, hand balancers, jugglers, clowns, gymnasts, and small animal acts from all over the world. This fabulous group of entertainers is joined by Lone Star Circus School staff and students as well as popular local entertainers, and they put together a cirque show which plays for a limited run in the intimate theater setting of Dallas Children’s Theater. These performers usually have only a few days to put together an entire, multi-act show and they do an amazing job!

There were so many performances in Charivari that were truly outstanding. A few that really stood out for our family were 16-year-old Jesse Patterson and her hula hoop act, Morgan and Cody’s double trapeze routine, The Zeman Duo’s thrilling roller skating/ BMX bike stunts, clowns Slappy and Monday, and Christian Stoinev’s hand balancing set that included some tricks from Scooby, his little chihuahua sidekick.

Read the full recap of my family’s experience on my blog at TheMomsJournal. There are lots of great photos to see too! In the mean, don’t wait to get your tickets as there are just a handful of performances left of Charivari through January 5th. You can buy your tickets online at or call their box office at 214-740-0051.

Be sure to arrive 45 minutes before each performance and enjoy pre-show activities and don’t forget your camera for the post show meet & greet and autographs!
