Zoppe Italian Family Circus is bringing its old-world fun and authentic circus atmosphere back to Bolingbrook this summer. Shows run July 12-15 under the big tent at Bolingbrook Park District's Central Park location.
High-flying acts and unique performances and feats of skill will delight people of all ages.
"Our show is different from any other show," said Tosca Zoppé. "It's a very, very intimate performance. We really want to give you something from our soul.
This intimacy comes from the family history. Tosca Zoppé is a sixth generation member of the family which began the circus in Italy in 1842 with a French clown and a Hungarian equestrian ballerina.
According to Zoppé, the circus features a new company and hired several new performers from around the world.
"They'll feel excited because most people haven't gone to circuses so they'll be like 'whoa,'" he said.
Tickets are being sold at the Park District for the shows now through day of the show.
