Bindlestiff Cavalcade of Youth

Bindlestiff Family Cirkus and Playful Productions present a special showcase for young variety performers, ranging from absolute amateurs to world-class professionals. Juvenile jugglers, diminutive dancers, adolescent acrobats, and a host of other majorly talented minors present a full show of vernal vaudeville.

The program features an amazing array of young talent! These are the future stars of Cirque du Soleil, Coney Island Sideshow, and television. Where else can you see young unicyclists, tap dancers, magicians, clowns, and contortionists share the stage with Broadway-bound singers and classically trained musicians?

Performers under 21 are invited to take the stage in this special circus and variety showcase. Produced twice a year in conjunction with Playful Productions and Coney Island USA, the show is a chance for the stars of tomorrow to take the stage today. Jugglers, clowns, aerialists, magicians, musicians, dancers, acrobats, or other performers, if you’ve got an act, show it off! There is no cost to participate and performers share the proceeds from a hat pass.
