We are raising money to fund the first of what will be many large scale theatrical style circus performances. Production is well underway with a cast of 25+ performers creating an inspiring story with an original score by ENSMB. While our talent level is high, our finances are stretched. Through this auction our goal is to raise the money needed to jump start our organization, make a uniquely creative spectacle and bring more splendor to the cultural landscape of Greater Boston.

Additionally, we are still seeking donations of goods and services to add to our ever increasing selection of auction items. If you or anyone you know or are affiliated with (bands, theaters, small businesses, restaurants, community groups, etc.) are interested in helping us out by contributing, please do not hesitate to contact us at Furthermore, if you'd like to make a direct monetary donation, we would gratefully accept those as well, so please contact us for more information.
