The venerable Triton Troupers Circus, which features entertainment ranging from tightrope walking to trapeze, will setup in the Robert M. Collins Gymnasium on Triton College’s main campus, 200 S. 5th Ave. in River Grove, this week.
The circus is composed of nearly 100 people from four area counties, including Cook and DuPage Counties, who “all have a passion for circus arts,” according to a statement the college released last month.
“The Triton Troupers Circus has entertained crowds of all ages for decades with exciting acts including tightrope walking, stunts, cycling, juggling, the gymwheel, teeterboard, stilt walking and more,” the statement reads.
