Many thanks to Electronic Theater Controls, the Madison Circus Space, and Jim Vogel for providing us with lighting, sound and seating; to the Wisconsin Youth Company for lending us their ring curb, and to the Goodman Community Center for tolerating our circus antics. More gratitude to the parents, partners, friends and volunteers who’ve sewn, crafted, created, rigged, turned a gym into a circus tent. It takes a village to make even the Simplest of Circuses happen!
