Our theme for this year's formal was "Vintage Circus". The Vagabonds were so great to work with and everyone loved their performances. I have never booked or coordinated a circus act before, so this was very new to me. However, The Vagabonds made everything so simple to coordinate and plan; I highly recommend them to anyone and everyone!
Sara and her crew are not only incredibly talented, they are also great to work with. I really wanted to be a part of the performance and they worked to find a way they could work me in. I ended up being revealed in a hoop by a curtain unveiling. It was truly epic! They also performed silks and Spanish web which was highly loved by the audience. I definitely recommend their services!
I have had the benefit of coming into contact with The Runaway Circus twice already. The first time was during an event at which they performed. I was blown away by their skill, as well as the affability of their personalities following the performance. They loved what they did and their performance and personal interaction exuded this.
Late on, I was getting ready to direct a music video, for which I knew I wanted some acrobatic and aerial elements. I contact The Runaway Circus and they were very excited about joining forces on this project. They brought 110% on the day of filming, and helped to make the project a huge success. Honestly, to this day, their scenes in the video are still some of my very favorite!
All in all, I can, with total confidence recommend hiring this amazing group for your event, as instructors, or to help make a creative project that much better!
Response from The Vagabonds of The Runaway Circus:
Thank you so much, Craig! We loved working with you as well! Your vision for the music video definitely came to life, and we were so excited to be a part of it!
I booked the Vagabonds for an adult, circus-themed Halloween Party at my Bar/Grill. They were a perfect fit. They dressed the part and entertained my patrons for 2 hours! They did a great job working with their surroundings.
We had The Runaway Circus for our School Age children. They came and did a performance and it was very entertaining and exciting. They brought props, a backdrop, and their adorable little boy who stole the show!
The Runaway Circus did a great job with our fun-packed, circus-themed fundraiser at Fitzgerald's last night. They were professional, talented, and fun to work with. We received exactly what we expected and then some! I highly recommended them for your party.
Working with Sara and the Vagabonds for Diner en Blanc was an absolute treat. Initially, I went to see a show they had running at Stage 773 and I was really impressed with the creativity and skill of the show. I decided to book them for Diner en Blanc. We had some issues with the venue not allowing certain things and Sara was very accommodating. She put together a program that worked for our event and made the venue people happy. Because of the Vagabonds we had a beautiful and exciting event. Thank you!!
