Set during 1890's France, Mirette is a magical tale that takes you backstage into the world of big tops and circus performers. Mirette, a young girl living in her mother's boarding house, has always been surrounded by a colorful cast of interesting and strange characters. However, no one has piqued her interest more than Bellini, a guest who can gracefully walk on top of clotheslines. As Mirette convinces the retired tightrope walker to teach her the secrets of his trade, Bellini discovers that his new student can also give him a lesson in overcoming his own fears. Based on Emily Arnold McCully's beloved picture book, this all-new production makes its world premiere at Victoria Gardens Cultural Center.
