8-year-old Bucks County girl designs Cirque costume

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- A costume created by an 8-year-old girl from Bucks County is featured in a show playing at the Merriam Theater.

Clare Sheehan rode across the stage Thursday on opening night of Cirque Dreams' Holidaze.

Clare won a contest to design a costume for the show.



Her "Festive Elf" costume is among the more than 300 in the holiday show that is part Broadway musical, part acrobatic showcase.

Holidaze runs through Sunday.
