Last year Yes Ma'am Circus came together to create It's Not Me, It's You: A Paradise Lost Reimagining. The show was a great experience, and we were able to perform it in several theaters in Chicago and Philadelphia. Now we're back with our latest project, a circus interpretation of Shakespeare's 12th Night. The show will be performed at Theater Wit in Chicago, on June 20-23 & 27-30. Regular tickets are being sold directly through Theater Wit.
12th Night: If Circus be the Food of Love, Play On! is a big step up for us in complexity and artistic ingenuity. We've edited large sections of the original text to fit our circus needs, choreographed new and even more daring circus acts, expanded our cast twofold, and booked a larger theater. We've also incorporated shadow puppetry to add additional visual depth to the show.
As we push forward and continue to challenge the lines that divide traditional theater and contemporary circus arts we need the support of our community more than ever. This project has been thrilling to work on, and we want to share it with all of you. The show will be performed at Theater Wit in Chicago, on June 20-23 & 27-30. General Admission and Discount tickets are available on their website. VIP tickets are only available on Kickstarter for a limited period of time!
Thank you all for your support of the circus arts!

Pictures of Rewards!
Risks and challenges
This show is happening one way or another. The theater is booked, tickets are live, our acts have been created, and rehearsals are happening. Most rewards have been created, with the exception of any personalized or custom rewards. Although shipping delays do happen, we feel confident that they can be sent out shortly following the completion of the show for anyone who cannot pick them up in person. This fundraiser will help us make the show even better. Props, costumes, and advertising cost money. By going bigger this year, we're incurring more expenses. Your help will make this show as good as it can be!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
