Christian Atayde Stoinev

Born into the circus, he graduates from high school this season. Will college be his next step?

Cast and Crew


They make the payroll. They hire the talent. They worry about the overhead.


They'd sell their souls for the love of a good crowd. They've got sawdust on their feet and stars in their eyes.


They eat dust. They suffer splinters. They sweat and strain and raise the roof.


They sew the leotards, teach the children and keep the lights from burning out.
