The third annual Circus Olé and Feast of Fools will take place on Saturday, April 26 from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Community Forum of the Oxford Hills Comprehensive High School in South Paris.
This animal-free extravaganza showcases the circus arts while raising awareness about the mistreatment of circus animals. All Circus Olé animals are giant theatrical puppets created by Trash Into Art, a community collective founded by Rijah Newell that uses street theater to illuminate social and environmental issues.
The event will feature performances by trapeze artists, contact jugglers, hoop dancers, Vaudeville-style dancers and clowns, giant puppets, stilt walkers and many others coming from as far away as Boston, Seattle, and Vermont.
Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children ages 12 and under. They can be purchased at the door, at the Maine Bookhouse on Main Street in Oxford, or at www.circus-ole.com.
