Cirque Voila! Special Performance to Benefit Performing Arts at CCBC
Sunday, Jan. 15 at 2 p.m. in the B Building Theatre, CCBC Essex

Baltimore County, Md. – Thrills, Chills, Laughs, Guffaws ... experience them all at an exclusive engagement of Cirque Voila! 2 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 15 in the B building Theatre at The Community College of Baltimore County, Essex (CCBC Essex). This family-oriented performance to benefit programs and scholarships in Performing Arts at CCBC features talented clowns, jugglers, aerialists, acrobats and the Guinness World Record holding contortionist.

Artists who are scheduled to perform at the Jan. 15 benefit include:

  • Acrobazia – Christian Paquet and Jean-Francois Martel (guest stars of MYSTERE from Cirque du Soleil in Las Vegas)
  • Leslie Tipton – Guinness World Record holding contortionist and stunning aerial acrobat
  • Greg Kennedy – 1996 Gold Medalist in the International Jugglers Association Individual Championships, with his phenomenal black light juggling
  • Mike Rosman – juggler, graduate of the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Clown College, and accomplished high wire walker
  • Buffoon Clowns – Liz Demery (who is also the director), Stephon Walker and Steve Wanna

Cirque Voila! is circus in the French tradition, with emphasis on spectacle and the individual accomplishment of highly skilled artists. These stunning acts are tied together by a sweet and life-affirming story of the cirque’s three “buffoon clowns” in their quest to claim the spotlight for themselves. The resulting message about the importance of claiming one’s own voice and skills is perfect for all ages.

This event would be an ideal holiday gift for the person who has everything or the family that doesn’t get to go out together. Ticket for this exclusive engagement of Cirque Voila! on Sunday, Jan. 15 in the B Building Theatre at CCBC Essex, 7201 Rossville Blvd. are only $25 for general admission, a family four-pack for $75, or VIP tickets with premium seating and post-show reception for only $50. Tickets are available through the CCBC Box Office at 443-840-1369, which is open on Wednesday through Friday between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.
