Meet the Ferlo Fan Club

At our second New York State jump — Saratoga Springs— our resident New York trouper, Sam Ferlo of Rome, NY, had quite the following.

Nearly 35 of Sam’s friends and family — which I have dubbed as the Ferlo Fan Club —  traveled to visit him at the show. With them they brought enthusiasm, excitement, and delicious cookies for the cast and crew. After seeing the performance Sam’s mom, Mary Beth, said, “The troupers stamina and energy is amazing!” Everyone else in their party agreed and had nothing but wonderful comments about our show.

Traveling all the way from Rome, NY — a two-hour trek — the Ferlo Fans came to support Sam.

It was quite a sight seeing the Ferlo “section” of the audience file out of the tent to pose for a group photo. The entire group, energy and all, filled the midway and cheered Sam on as he arrived for a photo.

Thank you, Ferlo Fans for filling our tent with some wonderful energy!

Best,

    that’s cool but shouldn’t they leave some room in the tent for an actual audience..you know, people that haven’t seen the show yet? this must be why it is selling out everywhere.

    Actually arden that was the first time any of us had seen the show. So please don’t assume things.

    Considering the family has never seen the show,I would imagine they would be an “actual audience.” I am also part of Sams family and had I been able to get there,from Texas,I would have been there also.Kudos to all who make Circus Smirkus happen.!!
