Circus Flora: The Case of the Missing Bellhop Little Top Friday

Circus Flora, St. Louis' original one-ring circus, has moved to its permanent home in Grand Center for its 2018 run of shows, and opens earlier this year, on Thursday, April 19. In Circus Flora: The Case of the Missing Bellhop, the world-famous Balding Hotel has long been an exclusive getaway for dignitaries and nobility from around the world; a place where the staff and crew have unusual skills and where people can go about their business without many questions asked – making the hotel famous for luxury and impeccable service. But when a beloved bellhop goes missing, the Balding begins to attract attention. Secrets proliferate and questions abound. What happened to the bellhop, and who knew about it? Join Circus Flora to find out in this one-of-a-kind madcap adventure.

An annual St. Louis family favorite for more than 30 years, Circus Flora features world-class talent in an intimate setting perfect for all ages.

Specially priced preview shows (tickets start at $10) will be held April 19-21. Regular shows, with tickets starting at $12, continue through May 13, and are held Thursday through Saturday evenings at 7 p.m., matinee shows on Saturdays and Sundays at 1 p.m. and Super Saver Shows on Sundays at 5:30 p.m.

Little Top Friday shows are at 10 a.m. (April 27, May 4 and May 11) and feature a shorter performance perfect for little ones.

Wednesday, May 2 at 7 p.m. is a sensory friendly performance. This special one-hour performance is tailored for individuals on the autism spectrum, those with visual impairments or other sensory needs. Minor changes will be made to the lighting and sound to create a comfortable, enjoyable environment.

Special shows include the Peanut-Free Preview on April 19 at 7 p.m., which allows those with peanut allergies the opportunity to enjoy the magic of Circus Flora in a safe environment. (To maintain a peanut-free envirnoment, no outside food or beverages allowed.)
