Daredevil stunt will lure attention

Circus mania is definitely in the air. First with the Asolo musical production of "Barnum," which will open this weekend at the FSU Center for the Performing Arts, and now with Circus Sarasota, who is planning a special treat for circus fans.

Tuesday (Nov. 18), Circus Sarasota will reveal a new act for its upcoming 2009 season in grand circus style. We hear he or she is a big circus superstar. The first superstar in the circus' 11 year history.

At 9:30 a.m. in Selby Five Points Park in Sarasota, which is across from the Selby Library, Circus Sarasota's newest act will be revealed in a daredevil stunt that is sure to be the talk of the town, though, we have no idea what the stunt will be. It's a big surprise.

Circus Sarasota is the area's non-profit arts organization that not only provides wonderful circus entertainment, but has special community outreach programs. Its new season will begin Jan. 30, 2009.

Tuesday's event is free to the public. Other Circus Sarasota stars will be on hand for autographs and photos. Don't miss it!
