Program description: The Acme Miniature Flea Circus is an authentic Victorian style flea circus that features Midge and Madge, trained fleas, who perform Spectacular Circus Stunts As Seen Before (and on top of) The Crowned Heads of Europe. The show was deemed one of the top shows at the Minnesota Fringe, Montreal Fringe, Piccolo Spoleto, San Francisco Fringe, and many others. The Los Angeles Times said: -'Professor Gertsacov has the audience (and the performers) in the palm of his hand.' Many other quotes and a video, are available at
Space/special requirements: The flea circus is quite flexible, and has been performed in a number of spaces, including tents, barns, a ship, people's living rooms, rec rooms, and of course, theatres. Due to the miniscule and delicate nature of the show it must be performed indoors (or inside a tent) Technical requirements are minimal. For full details, ask for the technical rider.
