Still in a Halloween mood? Payomet's Cirque by the Sea team of professional circus ghouls is relishing the spirit of Halloween with its latest original production, "Scout: A Cirque Scary-Tale." After performing several times in Truro, the troupe is bringing its performance to the Cotuit Center for the Arts this weekend with performances on Saturday, November 7, at 3:30 PM and Sunday, November 8, at 2:30 PM.
The show stars local performance artists Teddy Ment, Eleanor Getz, Trevor Pearson and Georgie Johnson.
The plot of the circus theater show features a group of young Scouts on a camping trip who gather 'round the fire to tell ghost stories. Unnerved after the stories, they try and sleep—but one wakes in the night to mysterious sounds in the woods. She investigates, and the stories come to life around her in the form of circus acts.
The performances will take place outdoors in the back parking lot of the center. Social distancing and other safety protocols will be strictly enforced. Masks are required. The center will provide seats, but audience members might want to bring extra sweatshirts and blankets.
Tickets are $20 for adults and $5 for kids. A $5 discount is available for members of the Cotuit Center for the Arts.
