Kids are the stars of the show at this student-run circus
Plymouth Meeting students are doing daring stunts during performances all to tell a story.Plymouth Meeting Friends School holds student-run circus every year in which kids are doing tricks and stunts in a performance.

PLYMOUTH MEETING, Pa. -- Will Starr has been organizing and hosting a school circus at Plymouth Meeting Friends School for the past 18 years.

He was inspired to do it based on a math book that he wrote that had a circus theme.

The kids put on this play every year and it always has a different story and theme.

Students will practice for over a year at the various stunts in order to prepare for the show.

The elementary-aged kids say they enjoy it so much that they often use their recess time to practice their unicycle skills.
