Ladies and Gentlemen! Boys and Girls! Children of all ages! The circus is coming to town…and the trees!

A-WOL invites you to enjoy this summer’s signature aerial event, “Art in the Dark,” bringing back a favorite show from 2012 – DROP OF A HAT! Come and run away with our quirky collection old-world style circus entertainment- featuring a delightful array of characters that includes a lion, a poodle, a mime, a strong man, a fortune teller, a magician, clowns, and- of course- a ring master!

This show is colorful, beautiful, humorous, entertaining… and, of course, features aerial magic of all sorts!

A-WOL’s Art in the Dark annual performance is a fantastical, illuminated, full-length, evening production set in a unique and rare outdoor theater style setting. Transforming a dirt plot into a performance spot, each show is packed with the flavor of the Northwest and a wonderful taste of the talent this area has to offer! Come see why A-WOL has grabbed the attention of OPB’s “Oregon Art Beat,” Travel Portland, and thousands of arts enthusiasts!

A-WOL’s Art in the Dark performances are enjoyed by all ages.

Last year’s show sold out entirely – get your ticket early!
