The cat’s finally out of the bag: The Greatest Showman cast trained right here at the Warehouse.

Not only were Zac Efron, Zendaya and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II Warehouse regulars for two months as they prepped for the film, they trained with our own circus mega star, Miguel Caceres. If you haven’t seen Greatest Showman already, make sure when you do to check out Miguel’s influence on the flying!

Actually, you can check out Zendaya flying in the great hands of Miguel, Suzi and Stuart in the clip below that Zendaya posted to her Instagram:

Efron and Zendaya spoke about their time training at the Warehouse in the LOS ANGELES TIMES:

“The two were on equally uneven footing when they began training at Circus Warehouse in New York.

“Efron says the first day was spent ‘doing some stretching, learning how to swing with one arm — without harnesses, sans harness. But I walked in and you were already on the trapeze — ‘

“ ‘They had me there early, just learning stuff — ‘ she says.

“ ‘Like, legitimate, real trapeze,’ he says, eyes wide. ‘Doing the flip, going onto your knees, being caught in the air. She landed one, I was like, ‘What the …? What …? Is that you? Oh my God!’ I felt so behind.’ ”

Abdul-Mateen, who plays W.D. Wheeler in the movie, spoke in a PARADE MAGAZINE story about how he prepared for his role: “I trained for about two months at Circus Warehouse in Long Island City. Zendaya, who was awesome in the film, did the trapeze and also the ropes, as did Zac Efron. It was really exciting to step into a new skin and conquer fears.”

Though Zac, Zendaya and Yahya played starring roles in The Greatest Showman, a whole lot of Warehouse people appeared in the movie as well, including Crista Marie Westley, Anna Venizelos, Olga Karmansky, Natalie McFancy, Evan Armbrister, Mark Curtis Ferrando, Samantha Sweet, Khazu Chan, and Richard Maguire.

A super big thank you to Mathieu Leopold for casting so many Warehouse stars!
