“I’Mpossible” tells the story of a young boy named Johnny who dreams of joining the circus. He confronts a world full of challenges and through a death-defying, awe-inspiring, madcap circus adventure discovers the strength, courage and perseverance that changes his life forever. Audiences follow Johnny as he encounters a beautiful aerial love story, flying hula hoops, the daring free-standing ladder, multi-level rolla bolla, Cyr wheel, Diabolo, mind boggling acrobatics and a contortionist who shoots a crossbow with her feet! New York is represented by the legendary King Charles Unicycle Troupe, the hilarious comedy of Rob and Miss Jane, dancer Rik Daniels, and Ringmaster Johnathan Lee Iverson. The company is a beautiful mosaic of backgrounds, skill and ability, authentically representative and engaging.
