Featuring acrobatic feats, equestrian showmanship, clowns, and plenty of audience participation, the Zoppé Family Circus brings the thrill and excitement of the circus into an intimate, 500-seat tent.
The show is led by Giovanni Zoppé, a sixth-generation circus performer who plays Nino the clown, the central figure and star of the performance. Nino takes the audience through a central story, rather than just individual acts.
Performances begin on Friday with a 7 p.m. show and continue throughout the weekend. Saturday and Sunday will feature three shows daily (1 p.m., 4 p.m. and 7 p.m.) before wrapping up the weekend with a 1 p.m. matinee on Labor Day, aka Monday, Sept. 1. Each performance is about an hour and a half long.
Tickets are $22 for VIP ring-side seating or $17 for general admission bleacher seating and can be purchased at the circus gate one hour prior to each performance, the Winter Park Resort Balcony House box office, or the Winter Park-Fraser Valley Chamber of Commerce located in Downtown Winter Park.
Advance tickets are available at www.winterparkresort.com until 4 p.m. tomorrow. Children age two and under are free. The tent is located right in the heart of Winter Park Resort, next to The Vintage Hotel and Cabriolet.
