Dear CAC Friends, 

This challenging situation in which we are living is changing by the moment. The safety of our staff, patrons, artists and students remains paramount. We so dearly miss our Sailor Circus Academy families, coaches, volunteers and students on what would have been the Opening Weekend of the 71st Annual Sailor Circus Spring Performances! 

Although current state and federal mandates limit our ability to bring the Sailor Circus spring production to fruition (this month)…we can’t wait to bring our students back for training in the arena to prepare for future performances after this “Cov-19 Intermission”

Whil we have not yet confirmed a date for the postponed shows, we are working within the guidelines established by our local community and government to get CAC programs & performances back on track at the earliest date that we can safely do so.

For anyone currently holding tickets, we are happy to extend a credit for the full amount of your ticket, to be redeemed for ANY Circus Arts Conservatory performance during the 2020-2021 season, including the postponed Sailor Circus event.  If you choose instead to donate the cost of your tickets, please know your donations will play a key role in ensuring that all of our outreach programs, including the Sailor Circus Academy, will thrive in spite of this very unexpected turn of events in our world.  Call the Box Office (941) 355-9805 for your credit or donation.  

We would like to acknowledge our donors and board members whose generosity keeps us afloat in challenging times. As we all navigate this situation, we are reminded that so much of the power of the Circus Arts stems from the joy in coming together for a shared experience, recognizing and reflecting on our own humanity and shared inspirations. As this virus forces us all to spend time apart, we are especially grateful to have had so many opportunities to come together with ALL OF YOU who come through our tent flaps & arena doors practice-after- practice or show-after-show. Thank you. We can’t wait to do it again.

Until then, stay safe and visit daily to stay connected as a Circus family through our virtual programming #CACConnects.
