BASTROP, La. — The Ticolini Circus will be appearing at the Morehouse Activity Center (MAC) March 31 with family-friendly fare for people of all ages. The acts scheduled to perform include extraordinary acrobats, magnificent jugglers, beautiful aerial ballerinas, daring wire walkers, performing animals and funny clowns.
Friends of the MAC member Buddy Savage has been coordinating the Ticolini Circus, which is visiting Morehouse Parish for the first time.
“I think a circus is a family event that everyone can appreciate,” Savage said. “All children enjoy a circus.”
Among the acts is the champion hula hoopers. Performing since the age of four, their champion hula hooper has performed in the Sarasota Circus Festival where she won three gold medals. Using amazing speed on her hands and waist, she moves more than 75 hula hoops at the same time.
Another act scheduled is the performing house cats. Uncaged and unleashed felines climb up and down pedestals and jump through hoops.
Cathy Ticolini is the representative for the circus. She said they’ve had good responses to the show.
“People love the show,” Ticolini said. “We have towns we go to every year. When they find out we’re coming back, they come because they want to see it again.”
The two performances are scheduled at 4:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. March 31. Tickets are $12 for adults. Children under 12 years old get in free when accompanied by an adult. Two free children per one adult.
Coupons for the show can be purchased on their Web site (www.ticolinicircus.com). Adults receive $2 off when they bring a cut out of this Bastrop Daily Enterprise article.
Ticolini suggest everyone come an hour before showtime to enjoy pony rides, jumping on the Moon Bounce, face painting and pictures with the world’s smallest horse, Twilight.
“Our show is like a European show,” Ticolini said. “It’s magical”
