GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WCJB) - An R-rated circus is making it’s way to North Central Florida for the weekend.

Cirque Alcatraz features a variety of stunts, aerial acts, adult humor, and more all while following a story of two wrongfully convicted prisoners. This production is rated “R” due to the raw content of the story featuring adult language, acts of simulated violence, and suggestive dialogue and situations, according to Cirque Italia.

The experience begins upon walking into the big white tents next to the Oaks Mall in Gainesville. Guests are immersed into a prison-like atmosphere where inmates unload from their bus and get locked up before the show.

“There’s a moment for a release of emotion,” said comedian Ryan Combs. “People have been pent up but this is an opportunity to come out and laugh, scream and have a good time and leave happy. I think that’s why people like Cirque Alcatraz.”

Showtimes are as follows:

July 22 – Thursday: 7:30pm

July 23 – Friday: 7:30pm

July 24 – Saturday: 6:30pm & 9:30pm

July 25 – Sunday: 5:30pm & 8:30pm
