How the Grinch Stole Christmas
Sunday, December 9, 2018
Every Who down in Whoville
Liked Christmas a lot...
But the Grinch, who lived just north of Whoville, did NOT!
You know the old story,
And you’ve read the book,
But Flip has the Grinch with a whole different look!
See Cirque du Flip,
Retell this Christmas fantastic,
Through acro and props and tricks most gymnastic!
Watch our Grinch’s heart,
Grow from two sizes too small
As he leaps and he flips off of the trampowall!
And as all of our Whos,
do delight you with ease,
By their aerial skills on silks, hoops, and trapeze!
So join us at Flip,
On the 9th of December,
For a circus performance you’ll surely remember!
