Circus 1903 is Spectacular Family Entertainment this Weekend

April 28, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - April 30, 2017 @ 8:00 pm

Step up and enjoy this animal-friendly live theater performance – Circus 1903 is Spectacular Family Entertainment this Weekend.The producers of the world’s biggest magic show, The Illusionists, have teamed up with award‐winning puppeteers from Warhorse to present a thrilling Turn of the Century Circus Spectacular for all ages!
Featuring the most amazing and unique acts from all four corners of the globe, accompanied by the largest‐ever performing puppet African elephant, CIRCUS 1903 transports the audience to the golden age of circus over two hours.
Circus 1903 is a very unique show in that it takes aspects of the traditional circus but puts a fresh, innovative and more humane spin on them. One of those new directions is using carefully constructed and realistic puppets in place of actual animals.
Sensational puppetry puts Elephants back in the ring as never seen before along with a huge cast of the most unique, amazing and dangerous circus acts from all four corners of the world, from strong men to contortionists, acrobats to musicians, knife throwers, high wire and much more! The elephants featured in Circus 1903 are not live but puppets brought to life by the talented team at Significant Object (the award-winning puppeteers from War Horse). 
Discover the golden age of circus this April as CIRCUS 1903 – The Golden Age of Circus sets to captivate audiences of all ages.
