Juliette Kline, an 11th grader at Minnehaha Academy and her sister, Lillian Kline, who recently graduated from the school, are among the advanced students of the circus arts who will be starring in Circus Juventas 2018 summer show, “STEAM: Grab your goggles and fly!” It’s an epic sci-fi adventure set in 1890’s Paris following a young H.G. Wells and beloved science fiction writer Jules Verne on an unforgettable trip. The Steam Punk atmosphere of the show has spurred the imaginations of many of the performers.

“I wish that I could travel through time,” said Juliette, who plays the mechanical doll Clockwork Girl in the show. “I also think it would be amazing for a doll to come to life with real feelings like my character does in STEAM.”

“The athleticism and artistry in STEAM has pushed our advanced students to a new level,” said Dan Butler, co-founder and executive director of Circus Juventas. “The massive 20-foot revolving Wheel of Steel will be just one of the exceptional acts holding our audiences spellbound.”

STEAM premieres at 7pm, Fri., July 27 and runs through Sun., Aug. 12. Tickets may be purchased through the Circus Juventas box office or through Ticketworks. Ticket prices range from $18.50 for children 10 and under and seniors 65 years of age and older to $45 for VIP seating. All shows are held at the Circus Juventas big top, 1270 Montreal Ave., St. Paul.
