Royce Hall
"With a spring-loaded love of the absurd, the internationally heralded troupe Circus Oz has created a fabulous new future From the Ground Up. Join this wildly popular company in a glorious rebellion against the generic as they deliver a delightfully ridiculous show for all ages. This versatile and diverse home-grown mob of quick-witted stunt jumpers are fully charged and raring to go with power-packed aerialists, knockabout jugglers and live-wire musicians all acrobatically suspended in disbelief under the big top of Royce Hall.

    Go on a humorous, mind-tingling search for nudity the amazing Getty Center. You don’t need to know anything about art or the museum—or nudity—to solve our tricky questions. Highlights include a sultry dog whisperer, slapstick with a lemon, an ancient game of wife swap, Toulouse-Lautrec’s “moodel,” Mischief’s bear hide, a Cupid who pulls a Mike Tyson move, a god who enjoys children (preferably with a bit of mustard), and much more. After the hunt, linger in the mountaintop gardens for a great view of the sunset.
    Please be sure to arrive at least 30 minutes before the start of the hunt to park and take the tram up to the museum. Contact us to learn more and get in the game!
