First of all, it’s pronounced “pa hase.” Circus Pages is a traveling show that originated in Cuba in the 1960’s, and now is based in Florida and they tour the US.
They are a smart act in many ways. They have a good financial plan, and will play small venues. I took my kids to see them twice in modest-sized rented buildings, and they put on terrific shows.
They also are very inexpensive. An adult pays 12 bucks to get in, and that entitles him or her to bring two kids under twelve in free!
Of course, you need to purchase some popcorn and cotton candy to help them make ends meet. And I have a picture of my kids holding a big python that cost me ten bucks or so. But hey, everybody’s entitled to turn a profit.
Circus Pages has a fine reputation of treating their animals like valued employees, rather than property. Some fly-by-night circuses have caused the entire industry to draw the ire of animal-rights-groups. Rest assured, Circus Pages does NOT mistreat their animals.
If you live in a town of 10,000 or more population, Circus Pages may well be visiting you. If so, I recommend you take your kids or grandkids and treat them to a show they’ll never forget.
