Early mining-inspired machines serve as a playground for a cast of Old West characters in Cirque Mechanics “Boom Town.” The acrobatic troupe will perform the show at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 21, in Leach Theatre of Castleman Hall, 10th and Main streets in Rolla, Mo.


Tickets are $16 for adults, $12 for youth and $10 for Missouri S&T students. In a special promotion, students and employees of Missouri S&T can buy one ticket and get one free with a Missouri S&T ID at the Leach Theatre Box Office. This offer is limited to a total of four tickets per ID. Box office hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Call 573-341-4219 for more information. Tickets are also available online.


Cirque Mechanics combines traditional circus arts with machinery and mechanics to create this unique show. The audience will be transported to the 1860s frontier town of Rosebud, where two ambitious saloon owners hope to cash in on the gold rush frenzy. Innovative mechanical apparatus serve as both scenery and performance props as the adventure unfolds with a series of explosive events, an unexpected romance and a lucrative discovery.

This performance is sponsored in part by Good Radio.

The Leach Family Series offers discounts for purchases of four or more tickets to this performance. In addition, in the event that tickets remain, discounted tickets will be offered through the theater’s “Back Row Club.” The seats in the last row of the theater will be sold one hour before each event for $10 each.

Leach Theatre is a division of Missouri S&T’s student affairs department. For more information about the series, call the Leach Theatre Box Office at 573-341-4219.
