In the midway you can wrestle a strong man, have fun fishing with marionettes, have your fortune told, get your portrait drawn, watch the world's greatest shorts plays, have your face painted and more.  Then at 7 p.m. the Great Schwazah appears played by Zuzka Sabata, with her circus variety show featuring special guests that include Playhouse Spring Break Camp kids, Shoshanna, David Ferney, Leslie Castellano, Dell Arte' Clowns, Sean's Shadows, and live music by Calliope.  The whole evening benefits the Playhouse youth programs which includes artists in the schools, youth workshops in the spring and summer and a year round teen program. This is a wonderful evening of excitement for the whole family.

    Look at all the fun filled events, that is why people need to support the existence of circuses. In, I have read that many governments are looking to prohibit circus for its use of animals. For those who think that it is animal violence, why don’t you dare to stop the poachers who are killing endangered species? You cannot do that because you are too scared of getting shot.
