    Hideaway Circus’ Canvas Sky, an all-new outdoor show, will be in Essex June 28-30.

    The show will be taking place in, and presented in partnership with, Essex Steam Train & Riverboat. Showtimes are 7:30 p.m. June 28, 4 and 7:30 p.m. June 29, and 1 and 4:30 p.m. June 30.

    The stop is part of a 35-week tour across 22 states. Canvas Sky features a tale centered on themes of self-acceptance and the power of uplifting one another, portrayed through the journey of a circus troupe. Audiences will follow the story of a clown, struggling to find his place, who discovers his voice with a little help from an unexpected friend. This narrative is brought to life by a cast of 10 performers, and it’s set to original music.

    This all-ages production is performed outdoors on a custom-built circular stage and aerial rig, offering a unique open-air experience.

    The show offers three tiers of seating: General Admission, where spectators can bring their own portable chair or blanket; Premium Seating, providing an outdoor spectator lawn chair; and the VIP Experience, which offers center-front seating with the most comfortable chairs. Ticket prices range from $25 to $65. Visit hideawaycircus.com.

    The creators and producers are Josh and Lyndsay Aviner.
