About the Show

This year’s Spiegeltent premiere will feature jaw-dropping aerial, mesmerizing cyr wheel, tantalizing burlesque and a singer with chops comparable to Adele, Elton, and Winehouse. The full cast will be announced soon – keep calm and keep your eyes peeled!

A night fit for royalty! Get ready to be shaken and stirred by the world’s best in circus and cabaret, straight from the West End. 

This festive experience is an unmissable theatrical event unlike anything you’ve seen before in Charleston. The world’s best are bringing a night of glamour, humor and sparkle to the Gaillard Center, featuring tantalizing tricks that even 007 couldn’t do.

Set in the magnificent Spiegeltent, it promises to be a show that would make Freddie Mercury, Shakespeare, and Dame Julie Andrews blush.
