Wonderful! Ghosts of Christmas past present & future dangling from ribbons, Tiny Tim doing fantasmagoric contortions on a ring, Mr. Crackett juggling myriad objects &fantastic band playing jazzy x-mas tunes Need I say more?

Fabulous, inventive take on the Scrooge tale. A touching evening filled with awe and laughter and wonderful music.

I was intrigued as to how the Wanderlust Circus could tell A Christmas Carol in a new, innovative way. They did not fail to impress. This was such a fun show and I hope it becomes an annual event.

Kid-friendly but entertaining for adults, too. A Circus Carol was a great mix of music, circus performance and the Dickens classic. As always, Alberta Rose is a fantastic venue for intimate performances.

Sunday must have used an understudy for Jacob Marley who didn't sing "Oh Holy Night". Big disappointment over last year's rendition. :(

We've attended this event the last few years and the Jacob Marley figure must have been an understudy tonight. He didn't sing Oh Holy Night which is the highlight of the show. So kinda bummed and unlikely to go next year.

The sound system was way too loud. I could hear breathing through the lavalier mics. The band was great but again the instruments were amp'd too loud. The auditorium is small enough that you don't need that much amplification.

3 Leg Torso's performance was fabulous and the cast did a wonderful job blending their traditional characters with circus acts. Was great fun!

Very entertaining! Will go again next year. Plan on getting there early to get seats together. Like the intermission snack bar too!

We had a great time at "A Circus Carol." Packed house, but good seats everywhere. Talented group--funny but serious too. Great music, great voices, impressive acrobatics. Most enjoyable. (Note: the theater needs more bathrooms, though I'm...continued
