Circus Couture “Lucky”

Plenty of action has happened since my last post — i.e. Hollywood Fringe Fest, Spiegelworld workshop in New York, film projects with Light Forge Studios, the list goes on — but few things struck as special of a chord as this year’s Circus Couture event, Lucky.

Now in its seventh year, Circus Couture is a Las Vegas charity raising money for pediatric cancer research and treatment through exciting circus, fashion and art events. Every year they put on a huge circus/fashion show/performance at The Joint in Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. This year, I was “lucky” enough to be cast in their new show on October 7th as the lead character, Chance.

Being involved in such a great cause was a true blessing. This year’s event raised almost $350,000, putting the charity’s cumulative donations past the $1 million mark.

Another perk was performing alongside extremely talented friends, both old and new. From former Zarkana colleagues, to long-ago technician friends, to new clown compatriots, models, designers and more, we packed a lifetime of goodwill in a very short amount of time.

Read the Las Vegas Review-Journal’s recap.

And here are a few photos of yours truly from the show. Hope to work with these folks again in future years!
