CIRCUS ABYSSINIA at Children's Theatre Company  Postponed To 2022 – 2023 Season

Children's Theatre Company (CTC) announced today that because of visa challenges due to COVID-19 and the civil war in Ethiopia, CTC has had to postpone the return of the beloved Circus Abyssinia's new show Tulu, originally scheduled to run January 18-February 13, 2022. Circus Abyssinia will instead kick off CTC's 2022 - 2023 Season with a 6-week engagement beginning September 11, 2022. Ticket holders for performances are being contacted by CTC with further information about rescheduling their performances.

"The combination of the current rise of the Omicron variant across the globe and the civil war in Ethiopia presented unprecedented challenges with the visa process," stated Kimberly Motes, Managing Director. "Regrettably, we were forced to make the painful decision to postpone their January return to Minnesota. We are thrilled that Circus Abyssinia is available to kick off our next season and we are confident the visa issues will be resolved well before this engagement."
