Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for seniors 62 and up, and free for Alma College staff, students, and youth 18 and under. Seating is reserved. Call (989) 463-7010 for ticket information.

“The same people who brought us the iO Theatre’s improvised musical in September suggested the Kenya Safari Acrobats,” says Michael Sheldon, building coordinator for the Remick Heritage Center. “The troupe is world-traveled and professional. They do lots of different shows including outdoor ones.”
While the crowd can be grateful that this show will not be taking place outside, Sheldon says the acrobats still plan to steal the audience’s breath with a “wowing” performance.
“This is not just a circus piece; it’s artistic,” he says. “These dancers are performing stuff straight from their homeland. This is their dance, and it’s pretty amazing.”
Rhythmic music and light displays will accompany the performers’ choreography, says Sheldon.
“This event is completely different from anything we’ve done in years,” says Sheldon. “With the lights and acrobatics, it’s like Cirque du Soleil in Alma.”
