The Dirty Circus is Coming to Town

Step right up, step right up for the Denton original, Cirque du Horror!

Cirque du Horror is a spooky, Halloween-themed production that began Halloween night of 2009. In its third year of production, the Cirque du Horror aims to be bigger and better than ever before.

What does that entail? To begin with, it will be staged at the FREE, family-friendly, all-day Denton Day of the Dead Festival. The Festival will be sure to please and entertain with a salsa cook-off sponsored by the Denton Community Market, “Hot Rod Trunk-O-Treating” sponsored by the local vintage car club, a pumpkin patch, a bake-sale, a raffle, local art and food vendors, and performances and story-telling throughout the day.

The highlight of the Festival will happen in the evening, when the Cirque du Horror takes the stage for two otherworldly outdoor performances at 6 and 9 p.m. The Cirque du Horror is comprised of an orchestra and actors who will perform “Those Creepy, Crawly, Spooky Things,” this year’s series of songs and stories. The very best of Denton’s homegrown talent, along with some of the very finest artists and musicians in the DFW make up the cast of this “phantastic” event.

David Pierce, the mastermind behind the Cirque du Horror, arranges music for a living, and all the skits and songs in “Those Creepy, Crawly, Spooky Things” are 100% original. But he needs our help to make the Festival and production a success….

He has set up a Kickstarter project to raise the funds needed for the event to be purely “spooktacular.” The goal is to make this the only year to use Kickstarter to raise funds, because the distinction and local fame the Cirque du Horror will gain from this year’s amazing production will undoubtedly earn the trust of “big time” sponsors for the years to come. The deadline for your donations to the Kickstarter campaign is October 2nd; let’s help Cirque du Horror meet their goal!
