Despite the many challenges it has faced due to the pandemic, CAC is determined to bring the joy of live performance to patrons of all ages - wherever they may be - while keeping the circus arts alive and thriving. For 10 performances over two weekends in March, the CAC has engaged incredible circus artists – many who have been featured in various Cirque du Soleil shows – who will share their gifts through a benefit called "PREVAIL." Patrons may enjoy the shows live or take advantage of digital tickets, which will be available for viewing beginning at noon on March 12. Proceeds will support CAC programs and outreach that serve students in K-12 classrooms, seniors in assisted living communities, and aspiring artists following their passion by training and performing in the circus arts.

The artists hail from all over the world. They are all donating their time (although housing and incidentals are being covered). While they are in Sarasota, they will train as well as do workshops with Sailor Circus Academy students. Many have related that, as the pandemic has stifled entertainment worldwide, they are thrilled to have the opportunity to train, teach and perform here.

Stringent health and safety protocols are in place for the in-person performances to protect patrons, artists and staff. Measures include reduced seating, masking required for all, temperature checks, enhanced cleaning and disinfecting of the facilities (including fogging after each performance), pre-packaged concession stand items, ongoing COVID-19 testing for staff and artists, and more.

Performances take place at the Sailor Circus Arena (2075 Bahia Vista St., Sarasota) on consecutive weekends, on March 5-7 and again on March 12-14. Show times are 7 p.m. on Fridays, 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Saturday, and 1 p.m. and 6 p.m. on Sunday. In-person tickets are $20-$50; digital tickets are $25. Tickets are available at or call the Box Office at 941-355-9805.
