A Cardboard & Duct Tape Spectacular

Bindlestiff Family Cirkus presents

A Cardboard & Duct Tape Spectacular

Following two seasons in New York City, this theatrical circus production is ready to come to a theater near you. 

A little imagination can go a long way, and the Bindlestiff Family Cirkus continues to reimagine classic American circus tradition with a unique contemporary twist.

Join Bindlestiff’s cast of acrobats, aerialists, jugglers, sideshow marvels, and vaudevillians as they pare the Cirkus down to its most basic elements: discovery, risk, and joy. Always ready to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary, these talented performers bring the audience back to their own childhood experiences of fun. Follow the Bindlestiffs and discover that some cardboard, duct tape, and creativity is all that’s needed to find delight.

“Imaginative…delightfully clever…the show exudes a warmth and affection…all but irresistible.”
