Due to weather, we are postponing tonight’s performance of the Ghostly Circus. Please join us for the rain date next Saturday, Aug. 18 at 8pm
This summer 7textures will return to Laurel Hill for a fifth year of enchanting fire and aerial performances with the Ghostly Circus. In this theatrical presentation amid the tombs, artists will build their stage evoking and encompassing the spirit of Laurel Hill while drawing upon themes from Dante Alighieri’s epic poem, The Inferno. This unique, other-worldly show features contemporary circus arts with live music and a Dance-with-the-Dead After-Party. Bring your own blankets, beach chairs and/or picnics and enjoy an evening under the stars. Food vendors will be onsite, along with a bar sponsored by Magic Hat Brewing Company. Don’t forget to bring cash!
The event will take place on Friday, August 10 and Saturday, August 11 at 8:00pm (with pre-scheduled rain dates on Friday, August 17 and Saturday, August 18). Late arrivals are not guaranteed entry. Please arrive at 7pm to enjoy the full Ghostly Circus experience. Check-in is at Laurel Hill Cemetery’s Gatehouse entrance at 3822 Ridge Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19132. Limited parking is available within the cemetery.
The cost is $30/person in advance, or $40/person on the day of the event. Children under 12 are $15. Advance reservations are strongly suggested. Tickets can be purchased at the door or online. Online ticket sales will end at 5pm each day of the show. They will then be available exclusively at the door.
