BRATTLEBORO—Jan. 6 has officially been declared Circus Saturday at the Latchis Theatre at 50 Main St.
To celebrate the movie musical The Greatest Showman, now playing at the Latchis, the New England Center for Circus Arts is joining forces with the Latchis to help audiences experience the film like nowhere else.
Prior to the matinee and early evening showings of the film, there will be pre-show demonstrations by real-life circus artists from NECCA. Attendees may get their picture taken with a clown or acrobat.
NECCA staff will also be on hand to share information about programs and classes and there will be raffle tickets for sale to support NECCA’s scholarship program and information about the Circus Spectacular performances at the Latchis Theatre on March 3 and 4.
Inspired by the life of P.T. Barnum, The Greatest Showman, now in theaters nationwide, celebrates “the birth of show business” and tells the story of a visionary who rose from obscurity to create a spectacle that became a worldwide sensation.
