We all have fond memories of the circus coming to town. The doors of the high top welcomed you into a world of laughter, imagination, and high-flying excitement. The Trenton Circus Squad invites you to relive the magic with the next generation of circus artists with their latest performance, “One Man’s Trash.”

“Cirque Us: One Man’s Trash” is an innovative approach to the traditional circus, incorporating repurposed items and transforming trash into treasure. This production was originally produced in 2016 and was such a smash hit that it was brought back for the 2022 and 2023 seasons. The show is coming to town on Wednesday, April 12th at 7 pm at the Trenton Circus Squad headquarters, located at 675 S Clinton Ave, Trenton, NJ 08611. You can purchase your tickets here: Tickets – Cirque Us. General admission is $15 not including any applicable fees.

This performance features impressive feats of circus artistry, highlighting the teamwork and tenacity of the Trenton Circus Squad performers. The eclectic use of repurposed props takes items that you might typically find on trash day and transform them into an adventure through the junkyard. During the show, guests can look forward to performances from awesome acrobats, soaring aerialists, and hilarious clowns just waiting to show off their skills. The Trenton Circus Squad has the dumpster doors wide open for a show to remember, now they just need you to dive in!

This innovative group of remarkable circus artists makes up the talented team of the Trenton Circus Squad. These performances feature children and teens throughout the City of Trenton and beyond. Young performers are allowed to attempt feats they’ve never tried, connect with their fellow performers, and bask in the glory of a performance well done.
