Circus Solstice

CIRCUS SOLSTICE! December 16th – 18th
This will be Circus Maine’s first in-house production of a full-blown circus! Using the talents of our own artists, apprentices, and students. Please join us by celebrating the longest night and the shortest day of the year, when the light of the day is changing by the minute, and the depths of winter lie before us. CIRCUS SOLSTICE has been created by the artists of Circus Maine under the direction of Michael Trautman.


Winter Classes
