Marcia Miquelon and Jacob Mills
Mars and Jacob are the dream team behind the Wild Rumpus Circus, Madison’s only youth circus. Since 2002, they have offered circus/theater-based experiences to kids through adults via their Wild Rumpus Circus camps, performances, classes, and workshops. Mars and Jacob use the traditional arts of the circus, including juggling, tight-wire walking, clowning, aerial arts, and acrobatics to teach kids and adults about overcoming challenges and connecting with others in a way that is safe, non-competitive, and fun. Together, they have toured to the Middle East, Europe, and numerous U.S. locations to make their unique brand of hands-on circus accessible to multilingual audiences by speaking the international language of laughter.
