The Grand Imperial Cirque de Paris -- With a bold flourish, the anniversary season begins with the "Grand Imperial Cirque de Paris" taking center stage in this classic American musical. Director Bonnie J. Monte will bring her unique vision to this 1961 musical adaptation of Lili, the story of an innocent, homeless girl who joins a troupe of jaded, not-so-imperial performers including The Incomparable Rosie, Marco the Magnificent and Paul, a crippled puppeteer. A joyride of music, romance and glittering theatricality, Carnival!'s score includes the standard "Love Makes the World Go 'Round." Original production directed & Choreographed by Gower Champion.
