Cirque Italia is pirating the high seas to present its brand new production right here in Little Rock.

Join ringmaster Clown Rafinha as a regular day of fishing turns into an unexpected treasure hunt in which he must conquer choppy waters and defeat pirates who wish to claim the treasure for themselves. Rafinha’s adventure takes audiences through stormy seas, pirate fights, aerial adventures and more. Crossbow acts and wheel of death performances keep guests on the edge of their seats. 

Manuel Rebecchi, president and owner of Cirque Italia, is tremendously proud of his circus heritage and feels extremely privileged to be able to share it in such a fun and memorable way. And never fear, the act abides by a strict animal-free policy.

To help keep audiences safe, social distancing guidelines will be followed to allow sufficient space between parties and directional signage will be in place. Guests are required to wear masks and asked to stay home if exhibiting any symptoms of COVID-19. If you forget your mask, they will be available for purchase at the gate.

Cirque Italia performances will be held at the Arkansas State Fairgrounds in big top tent July 9-19. Weekday showtime is 7:30 p.m., and showtimes for Saturday and Sunday are 1:30 p.m., 4:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. To purchase tickets, click here, call (941) 704-8572 or hit the box office between 10 a.m. and 9 p.m. on performance days.
