    Amazing! This show is so much fun! All of the performers have great energy and you can tell through their performances that they enjoy what they are doing. My favorite piece was the partner acro number. Their transitions were really smooth and they played their characters really well.

    Daisy (Sonja Anne Schulz) is adorable as the lead and her silks solo will blow you away! All the performers killed it.

    Truly, incredible work by Voler!

    The music is on point! The story line was enjoyable. Every person in this show was so much fun to watch. I had such a fun time watching the show and walked away impressed by the talent on stage.

    This was such a fun show! I loved the story line. The leads had fantastic stage presence. The sound track was killer. And of course the aerial display was amazing! Everyone killed it! Family friendly too; my 6 year old loved it.

    The performers did some amazing arial acrobatic stunts. There was also a pas-de-deux (not arial) which also featured some impressive moves. The cast was extremely talented. The show’s one weakness was their attempt to build a plot line with dialogue. The performers’ skills could speak for themselves without the bland “plot.”

    I enjoyed last year’s performance and its Greek Myth theme, and this year’s show is just as good. It has a silly and simple plot, crowd pleasing disco, rock, and pop music, and great athletic performances. I saw it with an all-ages crowd that regularly cheered throughout the show. The ending of the plot is rushed, you might playfully groan at one of the lines, and there was one segment where there was just too much happening at once, but it’s an excellent show in a setting that is small enough that you can see and appreciate a lot of what the performers are doing. Go see it. You’ll have a good time. It will put a grin on your face.

      The performers are talented and the leads are amazing. The show was so fun, and I thoroughly enjoyed the throwback music. My favorites were the ending solo silks piece and the acro duo! I love the tribute to Wednesday and the beautiful lines and shapes. The story was really great and I’m not a huge disco fan, but I was smiling the entire time!

    If you have never seen a circus show- go open your mind to the flying acrobatics and possibilities. The show was fun and funky, filled with musical characters of a variety of genres. An easy story to follow, pure play and community circus. Great show for any audience demographic – go!

  8. Sarah on July 23, 2023 at 5:13 pm

    The entire group is wonderful! You can tell they all really enjoy what they are doing. They easily transition from group to solo artists, always complementing each other! It was such a a fun story and a great way to spend our Sunday afternoon!

    Such a fun show! The performers have great energy and are clearly having a good time. Some really nice aerial and acro work, and the self-referential dialogue is hilarious. You will love these characters and their infectious joy, and the soundtrack is a bop. 😁

    WOW! Great performance. I attended with family members, and we enjoyed a great evening . I had not seen such a dynamic, high energy, show with aerial silks, hoops & other trapeze apparatus. All local performers were so talented with music, dance, & the aerial acrobatics! The performance even had a funny story line.
    I would encourage all ages to attend !

  11. Andi McM on July 27, 2023 at 8:33 pm

    Agreed with Stu. If scripted, it needs more “world-building” so we know what’s going on. If silent, they could better use props, gestures, expressions to help get the message across. The ending was abrupt and awkward. That said, many of the performers were stellar. Shout-out to Daisy, the Ball, Funk, Hardcore and Punk especially.

  12. John on July 28, 2023 at 9:08 pm

    Show was amazing!!!!!! I laughed through the whole thing. I loved all of the different types of apparatuses and the energy of all the performers. Such a fun sound track and family friendly! Definitely recommend catching their last show Saturday.

  13. Becca on July 28, 2023 at 9:13 pm

    Awesome show!!! Very high energy from all of the performers. Very family friendly. Great time to escape your everyday life and have a good time.

    A showcase of talented circus performers with a disco theme. Professor Funk was my favorite!
