Thanks friends for all your support! We had a great show at the Wildish Theater this past month, and I cannot emphasize enough how much fun it was! As one parent said, "I can't recommend Girl Circus enough for what it has accomplished in empowering each and every young lady who it touches...all of them are better for having been a part of the wonderful community of people involved."
We also have some exciting news coming up: Girl Circus performers will be featured at the Girl Scouts of America Girlfest November 15, 2014 at PDX Expo Center, details HERE
