What a great family experience! We went for the Circus School and Theater Company performance. Not realizing how small the venue would be, only about five rows of seating, I brought my 3 year old. She thoroughly enjoyed the performance, but didn't understand the concept of making requests quietly.That aside, between watching my 5 year old's face and my 3 year old's eyes lit up and hands clapping the whole time, I'm not sure which I enjoyed more their faces or the show.

It is a quaint theater. The group is made up of such talent and from such young performers. Their strength is really incredible and the enthusiasm was evident. While my kids would have done a little better at an earlier time (maybe?), I didn't think it was too old for them at all. They didn't understand the story line, but I did and found it really smart and interesting. We were all entertained by the acrobatics and silk work. 

Definitely a cool thing to do as a family. I will definitely be returning again in the near future!
