The Beastly Frightful Unspeakably Spooky Circus of Doom

This year, the Bellingham Circus Guild put on its first Halloween show* and it was awesome! Della and I wrote a whole new act for the occasion. It was a little gimmicky, a little over the top, a little funny(?), and hopefully a lot fun. I sure liked how it turned out, anyway. Check out the video below.

(Since you can barely see our costumes in the video, here's a shot we snuck in the photo booth. And since we're talking about photo booth photos, here's one of the cast and crew. What a group!!)

Before the show, I did ambient as a fire juggling fireman. Della was the cutest little teapot you could imagine.



Overall, it was an awesome experience. The gal the put on the show did a knock out job promoting it (3 total sellout shows plus a last minute show that almost sold out!) as well as all other aspects. It was really an honor to be a part.

Very cool effects. Can you change the lights out to something more ominous for next year, like green or orange? If you could do red ones, then it could a Valentine's theme?
In any case, I have to ask, same as the voice at the beginning: "Where is this song from?" I've heard it a hundred times, but couldn't tell you who did it, or which film I saw it in (Exorcist?)...

@Horge: You can change out the light colors and I would be super into to doing it for Valentine's Day, but it is a little ominous for the tone of the V-day show we've been in the past couple years. But maybe a new song and similar act/concept? As for the song, it is Oh Fortuna from Carmina Burana by Carl Orff. It's a really popular piece of music used in various places, but I can't say where exactly it is most recognized from.
