Well to be more specific, we are not running away...we are shipping to...and its not the circus...but the Cirque Du Soleil!!
Now you might ask yourself....what or how on earth could Riley ever be associated with the world renowned acrobatic phenomenon that is Cirque? If your confused, you are not alone...I scratched my head for quite some time on this one as well. A unique request for a Complete Dressed and Padded set of Goal Frames...but painted completely WHITE!
After some rather intense investigative reporting (Really it was just me and google...but its sounds so much cooler the other way) I managed to find a press release giving us some insight. Although the production has been kept somewhat secretive, we were able to gather some information on what will be the newest, latest and greatest Cirque Du Soleil production.
Now this is something I would go and see! Word to the wise to all you "D****Y on Ice" type shows...Watch out because...the Cirque is coming!
