Fritzi’s Flea Circus

Performed by Shoshana Bass

Fritzi’s Flea Circus welcomes audiences into a delightful world of circus feats, presented by a tiny flea with a big personality. In this 20 minute show, you will experience Fritzti as the strong man, the high diver and even watch as he is shot out of a cannon into the audience. This miniature, family friendly show was conceived by Ines Zeller Bass and is now embarking on a new life in the next generation. Daughter, Shoshana Bass proudly continues its tradition, inviting the power of imagination, play and ear wiggling, scalp tickling, heartwarming fun.
