Circo Tap

Event Type
Event Description

Chicago Tap Theatre continues its circus odyssey that began this spring with the behind-the-scenes inspired TightWire, a live performance combining traditional circus arts with tap dance. Audiences will be brought to the forefront of the circus and experience tap dance as never before. Chicago Tap Theatre, working with circus professionals, has created a thrilling evening of danger and rhythm incorporating stilt walkers and a rhythmic gymnast. Fans of TightWire will enjoy the return of the production’s characters and, perhaps, even find resolution that impacts the heightened action in Circo Tap’s finale.

The cast in Circo Tap is comprised of Mark Yonally, Jennifer Pfaff Yonally, Kirsten Uttich, Jessica Williams, Sioned Papporotto, Isaac Stauffer, Aimee Chase, Johnny Huntoon and Marc Kelly Smith as “Ringmaster” and narrator. Additional choreography by Rich Ashworth and Valerie Lussac will also be featured throughout the production.
