Come quest with us and see your favorite RPG encounters brought to life by Yes Ma'am Circus! Our performers begin in a tavern and must work their way through the mysterious Circus Dungeon! Armed only with their talents, these brave artists will use burlesque, acrobatics, juggling, and more to work their way through classic tabletop gaming scenarios. Will the bard succeed in seducing the famous Owl Bear? Does the gazebo fight back? Does casting Magic Missile into the darkness achieve anything? That is entirely up to you! Roll to determine the outcome, and watch as our intrepid PCs succeed, fail hilariously, and do their best to survive!
In June 2019 Yes Ma'am tackled another classic: Shakespeare's Twelfth Night. This gender-bending comedy was right up our alley, and our zany cast danced, juggled and rolled through the awkward love triangle and below stairs plotting. Check our blog and Facebook page for pictures as they become available.
Thanks to all who came to and Theater Wit for hosting!
If Circus Be the Food of Love, Play On.

"Yes Ma’am Circus brings something new and never-before-seen to the table with a combination of exciting acrobatic acts, humor, and a new take on the story of Paradise Lost in It’s Not Me, It’s You" - Picture This Post
It's Not Me It's You... is a circus retelling of the classic by Milton, Paradise Lost. The show revolves around the emotional fallout of the war in Heaven and the relationships between those left on either side of the Hell/Heaven schism. It explores themes of loyalty, betrayal, friendship and loss through aerial performance, acrobatics, juggling, and clown.
This show was performed in Chicago at Aloft Circus Arts and the Athenaeum Theatre, and in Philadelphia at the Venice Island Performing Arts & Recreation Center.
Original Cast: Maggie Karlin, Amancay Kugler, Athena Giles, Myriam Bloom, and Matthew Kugler.
