2013 in Review

What a year for Circus Mojo & The Ludlow Theatre!

We traveled over 47,000 miles in the past year to perform and present in Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, DC, Minnesota and even to Sydney and Finland!  We also brought the world to us!  Guest artists, teachers and staff came to us from from Ethiopia, Argentina, Hungary, Israel, Germany, Mexico, Republic of Congo, Indonesia, Chicago, Louisville, Johnson City, and on and on.

Our Circus Wellness programs have gotten more popular and we have added days with Cincinnati Children's Hospital, the Children's Home of Northern KY and brought the circus to nursing homes and to those with developmental disabilities.

We produced Cirque Devou Deux with the KSO, Cirque De-Stress twice with the University of Minnesota, launched the inaugural International College Circus Festival and had an awesome summer with Circus Mojo Summer Camp.



We invite you to set sail with a swashbuckling, audience-participation, comedy variety show that has captivated audiences across the country. The Pirate School! Production was featured in New York Magazine’s ‘Best of NY: Kids!’. Veteran New York-based family entertainer David Engel is the bumbling pirate Billy Bones who lives to teach zany lessons on how to stand, talk, laugh, eat and carouse like boisterous buccaneers. Guests can expect slapstick antics, adept magic, cartoon-like sound effects, and eye-popping puppetry. Kids are welcome to come wearing costumes.  Kids ages 10 and under will LOVE this!

Details about the Show:

Date:                Friday, May 9, and Saturday, May 10
Time:                7:30 pm shows on both days
Cost:                $5 for children 12 and under; $7 for adults
Tickets:             Can be purchased in advance here or at the door.
Location:           Ludlow Theatre in Ludlow (322 Elm St; Ludlow, Ky 41016)
