Run away and join the Cirque

Cirque Dreams Jungle Fantasy, a fanciful circus reminiscent of (though not affiliated with) Cirque du Soleil, is coming to the Mahaffey Feb. 3-8. To rev up local interest, the Cirque Dreamers will be auditioning local acrobats, musicians, singers, dancers "and anyone else with a special talent" for a small walk-on (cartwheel-on?) role in the production. Auditions take place on Saturday Jan. 24 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. ("limited to the first 100 dreamers") at the Saturday Morning Market in downtown St. Pete. A stage will be set up at one end of the market, so there should be no danger of gymnasts doing double-somersaults into your Uhuru breakfast tortilla. (Auditioners get two minutes each and must bring their own CD if they require music; only one or two performers will be selected.)
