Circus Flora is a longstanding tradition for many St. Louisans and is back in action this month for its 33rd season. This year’s show is bringing audiences to an unlikely place for an adventure – a grocery store. Schnucks, to be exact. 

(June 06, 2019) Circus Flora artistic director Jack Marsh (at left) and Alex Wallenda of the Flying Wallendas high-wire act joined Thursday's talk show to talk about Circus Flora's 33rd season.

On Thursday’s St. Louis on the Air, St. Louis Public Radio’s Jeremy D. Goodwin talked about how “The Caper in Aisle 6” takes a usually mundane trip to the store and turns it into an exciting visual performance for circusgoers. 

Joining him for the discussion were Jack Marsh, Circus Flora’s artistic director, and Alex Wallenda of the Flying Wallendas high-wire act.
