A haunted mansion on the Louisiana bayou plagued for 200 years. A girl
in search of love, knowing that she is cursed to lose it. Three
malevolent spirits who will do anything to make sure that no one in the
house marries for love. The legends of New Orleans have inspired the
Circus Juventas to create *Raven’s Manor*, a Cirque du Soliel-style
production that will have audiences on the edge of their seat.
A young girl wants to marry, but her family was cursed many years ago;
any girl who marries for love will lose her groom to the house.
Determined to break the curse, the girl calls on all the spirits of the
house in a thrilling event to banish the evil.
Incorporating thrilling new acts, including a wall trampoline, the
production will also feature the talents of Peter Ostroushko,
continuing his collaboration with Circus Juventas, and local actor Ansa
Akyea. Featuring 75 of Circus Juventas’s advanced students, *Raven’s
Manor* begins performances on Thursday, July 31 in a sold-out show. The
production runs through August 17th. Tickets run $12.50 – $25.00 and
can be purchased from the Circus Juventas box office or at www.uptowntix.com.
All performances will be held under the Circus Juventas Big Top on 1270
Montreal Avenue in Saint Paul. For more information, visit www.circusjuventas.org.
