So I am bringing these acts to a venue where you CAN take your family. The acts are NOT children’s acts – but they are family friendly and you will ALL enjoy the show!

There are magicians, jugglers, dancers, circus artists, hula hoopers, and more – every show is different, but will come let you and your kids see what people are doing in Seattle!

The show is about an hour long. "
