Circus Flora is going underground for the 2022 production of The Quest for the Innkeeper's Cask! In the show, the caves beneath St. Louis have fascinated the city's residents for generations. Each cave has its own story, its own mystery, its own secrets. In "The Quest for the Innkeeper's Cask," Circus Flora's troupe seeks an ancient relic, rumored to have mystical powers, and believe to be somewhere beneath the city's streets.
But it seems that someone does not want the Cask to be found - the closer it is, the more obstacles and boobytraps seem to be in the way.
Acrobats, daredevils, aerialists, comedians and more tell this wondrous story in a way that only Circus Flora can. Remind your family that adventure and excitement are everywhere, even underneath our city's streets!
Circus Flora: The Quest for the Innkeeper's Cask runs from June 9 through July 3, 2022, with special shows for little ones - Little Top Wednesdays - on June 15, 22 and 29 at 10 a.m. (Special one-hour performance for kids or kids-at-heart who don't want to, or can't, sit through a longer show.)
The Peanut-Free Preview will be held June 9 at 7 p.m.
Fan Friday is June 10 at 7 p.m.
Traditional shows are held afternoons and evenings June 9 through July 3.
