Sept. 22, 2010—Acrobats and circus performers will thrill audience members of all ages when Cirque Mechanics performs “Boom Town” Nov. 19 at North Central College.

Las Vegas-based Cirque Mechanics is a company of agile, inventive acrobats and performers—all veterans of renowned companies like Moscow Circus, Pickle Family Circus and Cirque du Soleil. The New York Times says Cirque Mechanics is “exceptional, evocative, eye-catching, ear-catching and, to keep this list short, engrossingly entertaining.”

The performance will begin at 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 19, in North Central’s Pfeiffer Hall, 310 E. Benton Ave., Naperville. Tickets are $50, $45 and $40; call the North Central College Box Office at 630-637-SHOW (7469) or visit www.northcentralcollege.edu/showtix.

The troupe presents an original style of circus-theater that combines gizmos and stylized machinery with jaw-dropping acrobatics, music, dance, drama and comedy—all tied together with a narrative line. Cirque Mechanics’ newest show, “Boom Town,” is set in the 1865 mining town of Rosebud, where an unlikely discovery sets off a series of hilarious and unexpected events full of the lore, excitement and adventure of the Old West.

North Central College’s 2010-2011 Sesquicentennial Fine & Performing Arts Season is supported by a generous grant from the Illinois Arts Council and construction materials maker USG Corporation is an underwriting sponsor.
