“Circus is a celebration of life. At this time of the year, soaring acrobatics, gravity-defying feats and the sheer beauty of the human body in action are a means of reminding us what we are able to achieve with hard work and passion, with love and joy.” – Fanny Kerwich, Lone Star Circus

CALISTA- child actor, age 9-14. Enters the show alone, without family or a sense of holiday wonder, but is soon swept up in the magic of the show and the holidays. We discover the wonder of the holiday season through Calista’s eyes as she meets circus performers from around the world, assists the ring master and becomes the star of the show. Must be comfortable commanding the stage on their own, improvising, interacting with the ring master or audience members & must sing very well in the style of the show. (Broadway pop/contemporary)
