EL DORADO, Ar. (KNOE) - The show’s performers say Paranormal Cirque is all about having a different experience, something unique filled with mystery and a little bit of illusion. It’s Cirque Italia’s newest show, and this is the first time something like it has come to El Dorado.

Delilah Santos is a performer with the Paranormal Cirque. She says the show started as a way to entertain adults in a mysterious and dark way.
“We have a horror-themed twist featuring vampires and zombies so like Walking Dead meets Vampire Diaries,” says Santos.
They say shows like this usually happen during Halloween, but Paranormal Cirque gives people a chance to see scary shows all year round. The ‘scare actors’ say when you walk into the big top, you’ll enter their graveyard.
“It's my job to scare you, whether to sneak up on you or to just be creepy in general that kind of thing,” says actor Sonya Black.
She says be warned that the scares aren’t just limited to the graveyard. “You might find us outside or you might find us in your seat you never know,” explains Black.
She does say if they happen to catch you while you’re holding food, and you drop it, they’ll replace it for you.
It isn't just scary; they say the show also has some comedy, romanticism, acrobatics and other death-defying acts. They’ll be performing with “silks, parallel bars, Lyra, dancing and magic illusions,” says Santos.
Santos says you can see international acts too, she says there are performers from at least 14 countries with this show; all with the goal of keeping you entertained.
You have to be over 13 to see the show and accompanied by an adult if you’re between the ages of 13-17. All the shows will take place at the Union County Fairgrounds in El Dorado, Arkansas.
