A high-flying gala in Chicago Saturday night has folks running away to join the circus.

Live music and circus performers from the Actors Gymnasium entertained guests Saturday night filling a big top tent at the Riverfront Theater on West Chicago Avenue.

It's all for the Lookingglass Theatre's annual Madhatter's Ball.

The festivities go until midnight Saturday night.

Then an after party gets underway at Lumen on West Fulton Market.

Proceeds go to education and community programs for Lookingglass Theatre.
