The Flight Fantastic
This fascinating look at the world of the flying trapeze centers on one of the greatest acts in circus history, The Flying Gaonas. First performing on a trampoline, the Gaonas went on to become a star attraction for the best circuses in the world, including Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey. Longtime Broadway, film and TV director, trapeze flyer, and Peterborough Players Alumnus Tom Moore brings their story to life through interviews with family members and colorful archival material. The Gaonas fill the screen with their dazzling skills and charisma, qualities that are undiminished in their “second act.” Having left the center ring, we see them pass the torch through teaching and coaching to new generations.
Special note: Tom Moore will be here for a talkback.
