Sending home the clowns, and other circus news

Fern Street Circus
Fern Street Circus, the San Diego-based circus company that pops up in Balboa Park every year and runs ongoing educational programs in local schools, will shut down operations.

Executive director Laura Stansell confirmed that Fern Street will close, but she declined to comment further until she consults her board of directors.

Fern Street Circus was founded in 1990 and has been producing circus shows in Balboa Park every spring since 1991.

Meanwhile, The Center for Amusing Arts and Technomania Circus have found a new home at the recently refurbished Victory Theater (2558 Imperial Ave. in Grant Hill). The historic 1920s theater is also hosting DangerHouse Productions' staging of Fear Beautiful Fear through Nov. 6 and other special events and performances.
