UniverSoul Circus is celebrating its 24th year of family entertainment.
The interactive circus will have people out of their seats dancing and laughing. Just like all circuses, it has a variety of animals and mouth-dropping acts. But what makes this circus so unique is its traditional soul line.
Temple Update met up with the ringleader sidekick, Zeke, who said that, “We have new acts that are out of this world. But then we also have our traditional things.”
The UniverSoul Circus consists of many different acts, but also tries to get the community of Philadelphia involved.
For its opening act, the circus had youth dancers from all over Philadelphia dance for the opening shows. This circus does not just cater to kids, it caters to adults as well.
Michael Martin of Burlington, New Jersey told Temple Update that he relives his childhood through the circus.
“I’m actually reliving my childhood through my grandchildren and the circus. So, I’m a big kid at the circus,” said Martin.
UniverSoul Circus is also home of Fresh the Clown. He told us, “Because of the clown stuff that has been happening, it kind of helped our image. Kids now look at us as superheroes or super clowns.”
People can head down to Fairmount Park to watch the circus in person Tuesday through Sunday. Show times and tickets can be found at http://www.universoulcircus.com.
