Super American Circus proves a success

The first circus to come to the island in almost two decades proved a success, according to one of its organisers.

Montana DeBor, the general manager of Super American Circus, said feedback from people who attended the show at The Shed in Dockyard last month has been “very positive”.

Ms DeBor said the audience loved every act in the animal-free show, but her friend, Bermudian aerialist Kallie Marcus, appeared to be the most popular.

She added: “It was a pleasure hearing her name chanted from the audience.”

Ms DeBor also mentioned Tropical Storm Phillipe, which passed 25 miles off Bermuda on October 6 — what would have been the show’s opening night.

The storm forced the circus to cancel performances scheduled for that night and put on four on Saturday and Sunday, instead of the originally planned three.

Despite this rescheduling, Ms DeBor is “grateful to the patience and ingenuity of both our audience and our cast” and said “everything worked out in the end”.

She added that attendance at every show was “excellent” and the final two Saturday performances were the most full.

The circus donated “significant funds” to Gina Spence Productions’ Champions Programme while on the island.

Ms DeBor could not confirm the exact amount raised for the charity, which supports families who have lost loved ones to gun violence, but said the circus will work with it again when it returns to the island.

She did not say precisely when the circus may come back, but mentioned “bringing a new and original production to Bermuda soon”.

Ms DeBor thanked everyone who attended the circus and helped to make it a success, especially Rick Richardson from the Hamilton Rotary Club.

The Royal Gazette reached out to Gina Spence Productions, but did not receive a response by press time.
