PREVIEW: The Circus Juventas Gala

If you missed Circus Juventas’ sensational 1001 Nights show this summer, there’s one more chance to catch it during one of fall’s hottest society events: the annual Circus Juventas gala. Many local arts organizations have their galas in their performance or gallery spaces, but only Circus Juventas puts the action under the big top, with tables right at the edge of the mat. Here’s a look at some of the performing arts circus school’s galas of yesteryear and the 1001 Nights show featured as the evening’s entertainment.

The Circus Juventus gala takes place under the big top tonight at 6 PM at 1270 Montreal Ave, St Paul, MN 55116. For tickets and more information, see: http://circusjuventas.org/annual-gala/.
