A circus like no other, the acrobats, athletes, and artists of the New Shanghai Circus will tumble into Norton Auditorium on Sunday, February 24, at 2 p.m.
“Gravity-defying feats and super-human displays of power and extraordinary grace” take the performances of the Circus to new heights. This is a rare opportunity for the Shoals audience to see incredible performers from China.
