What is The Dead Mans Carnival?

The Dead Man’s Carnival is the largest monthly variety show in the midwest, featuring entertainment the likes of which you’ve never seen!

You’ll see impossible feats of juggling, skill and daring!

You’ll enjoy the most tantalizingly beautiful burlesque you’ve ever seen!

You’ll witness magicians making mystical miracles manifest!

You’ll cry laughing at the antics of our physical comedians!

You’ll be in awe as our sideshow performers risk life and limb for your amusement!

You’ll gasp as our aerial daredevils perform acts on trapeze, the lyra and the exotic silks!

You’ll stare in wonder at the variety of dance and movement exhibited!

Your jaw will drop at the sight of the performers who have tamed the element of fire itself!

All this and more, while being serenaded by the toe tapping talented live band featuring music as diverse as jazz, ska, blues, swing, rock, alternative and much much more!

Our regular monthly show is performed on the First Friday of every month, from February to November, at the historic Miramar Theatre! We are also available for private hire gigs, and have performed at Turner Hall Ballroom, The Oriental Theatre, The Majestic in Madison and many other venues!
