The Squirm Burpee Circus will bring its unique blend of slapstick comedy, high-skill circus acts and classic melodrama to Western Carolina University’s John W. Bardo Fine and Performing Arts Center on Sunday, March 2.
The performance, part of the 2013-14 Galaxy of Stars Series, will begin at 5 p.m.
Mike Huling, artistic director of Denver-based Handsome Little Devils Productions, which produces the show, describes the Squirm Burpee Circus performance as “a vaudevillian melodrama.”
“Essentially, the melodrama part is really cartoony, and the storytelling moves pretty fast. It’s playful and fun,” Huling said.
