CIRCUS VARGAS

Children learn circus skills in the center ring of Circus Vargas. The circus is in town through Oct. 11.
The art of the circus has returned to the Santa Clarita Valley.
Circus Vargas 2010 offers family-friendly entertainment under the big top at Westfield Valencia Town Center now through Oct. 11.
"Circus Vargas 2010 exemplifies circus as an art form. It unites amazingly skilled serious performers with the innocence and silliness of truly comedic circus clowns - the kind that actually make you laugh," said Joan Hart, Circus Vargas marketing director. "This latest edition of Circus Vargas bridges the gap between old tradition and modern innovation. The appreciation of circus fans old and new keeps the performers loving what they do at Circus Vargas."
Circus Vargas plans to help those hit hardest by the economic downturn and will allow those who are unemployed to bring their immediate families (two adults and two children) at no charge to any weekday show at the Westfield Valencia Town Center.
During its 2010 tour, Circus Vargas has been surprised that more than 8,000 people have taken advantage of this program.Free tickets can be received for any weekday show from the Circus Vargas Box Office at the circus (in front of the Big Top tent). To receive their tickets (up to four tickets for the immediate family), about an hour before show time of any weekday show, patrons should bring their layoff notice from their job or a stub from their unemployment check to demonstrate that they are unemployed.
Patrons bringing two cans of food (per person) to Circus Vargas will each receive a $5 discount (up to four people) to shows at the Westfield Valencia Town Center.
"We are always pleased to be able to give back to the community," said Hart. "If we can help raise awareness for a worthy cause, through our performance, through our art...well then, we are doubly fortunate."
"We're so grateful that Circus Vargas has decided to help fill our shelves by offering discounted tickets," said Belinda Crawford of the SCV Food Pantry. "Food drives like these are a very important source of food for us, especially now during National Hunger Action Month."
The SCV Food Pantry has relied on donations from the community during the last year to provide food for more than 1,110 local senior citizens, and 6,500 SCV residents, 3,000 of them children.
"This is a great experience all the way around," said Katya Quiroga, president and owner of Circus Vargas. "It's gratifying and rewarding for the performers, and it's exciting and entertaining for the audience. We think everyone should be able to experience the magic of Circus Vargas, and we are very proud to be able to make that happen."
Tickets run from $55 VIP seats to $15 bleacher seating.
Performances will be held 7:30 p.m. Friday Oct. 1; 1:30 p.m., 4:30 p.m. and7:30 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays Oct. 2-3 and Oct. 9-10; 7 p.m. Monday, Oct. 4; no performances Oct. 5; 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday Oct. 6-8 and 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. Monday Oct. 11 (Columbus Day).
