On Saturday, May 16th the Cemetery will partner with 7textures, a local creative production and event design group, to bring The Ghostly Circus to life again. Somewhere between the clouds, the tombs, and Dante’s rings, an intriguing and site-specific stage features fire and aerial acts evoking and encompassing the spirit of Laurel Hill. This unique, other-worldly show will include: fire dancing, aerial performers, theatrical side-show, original music, and a Dance with the Dead After-Party. Bring your own blankets or beach chairs, snack, and/or beverages and enjoy a picnic under the stars in one of the most beautiful settings in Philadelphia- surprises will await you.
The main show starts at 8:00pm on Saturday, May 16th (with a prescheduled rain date of Sunday, May 17th at 7:30pm). Gates open to the public at 7pm.
