Circus Flora’s brand new, permanent home in Grand Center is preparing for its first-ever production this spring.

“The Case of the Missing Bellhop,” billed as a “one-of-a-kind madcap adventure,” will make its debut April 19 through May 13 at Circus Flora’s new location. The Big Top is now located on 3401 Washington Blvd., just south of its previous location in the Grand Center Arts District.

Circus Flora’s new home, a result of a partnership formed with the Kranzberg Arts Foundation, will also be equipped to host the foundation’s events and other special events year-round.

“The Case of the Missing Bellhop” will transport audiences to the famous Balding Hotel—an exclusive destination for dignitaries and nobility from across the globe. The hotel’s staff is known for having unusual skills, but when a beloved bellhop goes missing, the Balding begins to attract attention and people want to know what happened to the bellhop.

“It’s always an honor to bring the world-class Circus Flora performers together under the Big Top each year,” said artistic director Jack Marsh. “This spring, we have the added excitement of welcoming everyone to our brand-new, permanent home in Grand Center for a one-of-a-kind mystery.”

Performances of “The Case of the Missing Bellhop” take place Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday at 1 p.m.; and on Super Saver Sundays at 5:30 p.m. and Little Top Fridays at 10 a.m. (except April 20). Circus Flora will also present a peanut-free preview on Thursday, April 19, at 7 p.m. for guests affected by peanut allergies. On Wednesday, May 2, at 7 p.m., there will be a special one-hour sensory-friendly performance for adults and children on the autism spectrum, as well as attendees with visual impairments or other sensory sensitivities.

Tickets go on sale Friday, Jan. 19, and can be purchased online at, by calling (314) 534-1111, or in person at the Fox Theatre Box Office. For more information, visit
