No one loves going to prison but people do love a circus. Especially if there's comedy thrown into the mix. But a circus ABOUT prison? That hasn't really been done, but there IS one and it's coming to El Paso in March.

El Paso has had their fair share of circuses come to town like the DO Portugal Circus, Cirque du Soleil, the Carden International Circus, & the Paranormal Circus in 2021.

The same people who brought the Paranormal Cirque, Cirque Italia, introduced a new theater production/circus in 2021 that's all about the infamous Alcatraz Prison called The Slammer: a comedic take about 2 best friends who get sent to Alcatraz & have to navigate through the prison running into guards & criminals on the way.

Some people posted their experiences at The Slammer online so if you're curious about what to expect, there's one video showing off some of the dancing & acrobats.

Another video shows two people doing a walk-through of the Alcatraz circus where they BECOME PART of the circus.

The Slammer will be in El Paso at Sunland Park Mall from March 24th to April 3rd & the Mesilla Valley Mall in Las Cruces, New Mexico April 7th to the 10th. It is NOT all ages however since this show is part circus with a touch of cabaret; their website says it's 18 & over show (anyone 13-17 HAS to be accompanied by an adult). The tickets start at $10 and you can get yours for the El Paso & Las Cruces show HERE.
