A family highlight of Marin Country Mart's new Winter Markets on Saturdays and other holiday festivities before Christmas is the return of Le Petit Cirque de Noël, featuring an original show, "Rue des Roses," performed under the Big Tent on December 5 and 12. New this year is a performance of the Wooden Nickel Circus on December 19. |
Full of enchantment, thrill and wonder, Le Cirque de Bohème has delighted kids and adults for years. Founded by Frenchman Michel Michelis, his circus company, Le Cirque de Bohème, was created 11 years ago in Paris and moved to California seven years ago. The goal of Monsieur Michelis - an eclectic artist, author, singer, actor, and interpreter - is to present the joy and mystery of a Parisian-style circus of the 1920s, with its mix of theater, music and circus sets. Some of this year's artists, who hail from the Bay Area, France and Germany, have performed in circuses for over 30 years.
Tom Sweeney is the founder and creative director of the Wooden Nickel Circus, based in Marin. With close to two decades of experience as a musician and performing artist working in variety shows and independent circus arts events, Tom brings together many of today's top performers from the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond. Featuring live entertainment that charms and inspires, the Wooden Nickel Circus creates unique and unforgettable events appropriate for all ages.
Children 18 and under are $10; adults' tickets are $20. However, because space is limited in the tent, all attendees must have a ticket, available here at Brown Paper Tickets.

- December 5 and 12: Le Petit Cirque de Noel, featuring "Rue des Roses"
TONIGHT, DECEMBER 5: TICKETS SOLD AT THE DOOR, IF AVAILABLE.
