Cirque Italia @ The Great Fredercik Fair |  |  |

GET READY FREDERICK, MD, BECAUSE YOU ARE ABOUT TO HAVE THE TIME OF YOUR LIFE! CIRQUE ITALIA, THE FIRST TRAVELING WATER CIRCUS IS COMING TO TOWN WITH A SPECTACULAR SHOW THAT YOU CAN’T MISS!
Cirque Italia has grown to the point where the next logical step can only be to expand operations and double our presence at the national level. In response to our wonderful fans all over the U.S., and with over 90% of shows being sold out, NOW is the perfect time for a substantial investment.
Beginning in 2017, Cirque Italia, the first traveling Water Circus, introduces a second unit, the Gold Unit: a luxurious experience where technology and preforming arts are mixed to create a one-of-a-kind show.
This new performance will feature an ultra-modern water curtain that controls every droplet of water meticulously. Cirque Italia is ready to provide a breathtaking experience. This new stage by itself is enough to amaze the most demanding audience, and synchronized with the most creative display of superhuman talent – the result is simply out of this world!
The latest trends of the industry are challenged with every Cirque Italia appearance and this 2nd unit is not going to be any different. A careful casting selection has united the best artists from all over the world. This production will feature acts all the way from Russia to Mexico. Cirque Italia believes in multi-culturalism as one of our strongest assets.
Packed full of incredible acts, there is no room for boredom. The variety presented is exceptional. For those who enjoy smart and well-thought out comedy, Alex the clown thrills while taking an acrobatic journey on the trampoline. Our Argentinian twin jugglers (with a Guinness World Record in their pockets) can handle all kinds of objects in the air, even fire! There is almost no bodily limit for our contortionist as she bends in ways you never would have imagined. She makes it seem so natural, you might end up trying it in yoga class.
Whether it’s a futuristic laser act or mesmerizing aerial performances, the show has something for all tastes and expectations. One thing Cirque Italia sets out to accomplish is to create a type of world-class entertainment suitable for all age groups.
This new second unit also follows the same strict animal-free policy that makes the Water Circus stand out from other circus entertainment shows.

The “magic touch” of the Italian entrepreneur Manuel Rebecchi, President and Owner of Cirque Italia, added to the flawless direction of the COO, Chanté DeMoustes, and has turned this once romantic project into a successful production known and acclaimed all over the country.

Don’t miss the opportunity to be amazed and transported to a fantastic realm where your deepest dreams can -and will- come true.

For more information visit www.cirqueitalia.com and make sure to check all our social media accounts. Tickets can be purchased now starting at $10.00-$50.00 depending on availability.

Secret Keeper Girl @ Uniontown Bible Church |  |  |

The Marriage & Relationship Education Center (MREC) announces that Secret Keeper Girl – a national touring stage show aimed at tween girls and their moms – is returning to Carroll County on Saturday, August 19, from 6:30 – 9:00 p.m. at Uniontown Bible Church, 4280 Watson Lane, Union Bridge, Maryland.

“We are extremely excited to offer this program again to our community,” says Amy Gilford, Executive Director of MREC. “Giving parents tools and opportunities to strengthen their relationships with their children equips kids to make the best choices when temptations come along.”

Today’s girls face pressure their moms didn’t know until they were in high school. Secret Keeper Girl offer moms proven tools to teach their girl to embrace true beauty and biblical modesty. The Purple Party Tour is a Bible-based relationship-building experience for moms and their tween daughters, ages 7-12.

The two-and-a-half-hour event features a hair and fashion show, balloon sculptures, bouncing beach ball competitions, mother/daughter conversation time, colorful confetti cannons and more. Tweens and their mom will laugh their way through a game-show meets fashion-show. They’ll look back at fashion dos and don’ts from days gone by in the Sew-Crazy Fashion Show. Then, they’ll square off with hilarious team building games – becoming a Secret Keeper Girl.

Within the first hour, moms will connect with their 7-12 year old girls in ways that encourage them to be better moms. The tour wraps up with intimate one-on-one time for every mother and daughter in the audience. Tissues will be on hand, because there won’t be a dry eye in the house. Moms and daughters will walk away closer and stronger than ever before.

The cost for this event is $20 for general admission. $30 for reserved seating, $50 for a VIP ticket with reserved seating, a special experience with the Secret Keeper Girl cast, an exclusive VIP tour laminate and early access to the resource center to beat the line, or $75 to experience Secret Keeper Girl the way cast members do! This ticket includes the VIP Meet n Greet plus a tour behind the scenes and a tour of the Secret Keeper Girl Tour Bus. Group seating is also available at a lower cost.

“A Streetcar Named Desire” at McDaniel College Theatre @ WMC Alumni Hall
Oct 4 @ 7:30 pm – Oct 7 @ 7:30 pm

McDaniel College theatre arts students perform Tennessee Williams’ Pulitzer Prize-winning drama, which “has become an icon of American culture,” according to the Library of Congress, and is on its list of “88 Books that Shaped America.” Gené Fouché, theatre arts lecturer, directs the production.
This legendary play looks at a clash of cultures. Troubled former schoolteacher Blanche du Bois, a fading Southern Belle, moves in with her sister, Stella, and Stella’s husband, Stanley, who is part of the working class, in the French Quarter of New Orleans following World War II. Blanche’s life has been undermined by her romantic illusions, which has led her to reject the realities of life. This causes problems for Stella and Stanley, who already have a volatile relationship, leading to even greater conflict in the household.
NOTE: The play contains adult content, including domestic abuse and assault.
