The Turners Circus spring performances will take place the second and third weekends in March again this year. The 2017 show will be a performance called “Stagecoach” and will take the audience through the Cumberland Gap straight to the American Frontier where outlaws, sheriffs, cowboys and gold prospectors converge in a tale of the Wild West.
The performances are as follows:
Friday, March 10 – 7 p.m.
Saturday March 11 – 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Sunday March 12 – 2 p.m.
Friday March 17 – 7 p.m.
Saturday, March 18 – 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Sunday, March 19 – 2 p.m.
Advance tickets are $12.50 for adults and $7.50 for children and are available online at www.louisvilleturners.org. Ticket prices at the door are $5 more for both ($17.50 for adults and $12.50 for children). Shows typically sell out so advanced ticket purchases are advised.

Turners Circus is best described as a contemporary circus theatre and features cutting edge aerial and circus arts programs for families of the Greater Louisville area. The annual spring performances are the culmination of the group’s year-round Aerial and Circus Arts Training Program.
Turners Circus began in 1942 as a fundraiser to support the American Turners of Louisville Gymnastics Team. Over time, the program took to the air and is now a leader in the growing adult and youth circus arts programs across America. This year marks the 67th annual presentation of Turners Circus.
