They did a nice job, but I personally was bored. However, my 10 year old grandson who accompanied me loved it!

Fabulous! As always, Happenstance delivers the giggles, chuckles, and wonder. A perfect show for any age. Don't miss it!

This was a classic circus show, with most of the feats performed in mime: wire walking, knife throwing, escape artist, etc. The performers had great timing and goofy charm.
