FLASHBACK FRIDAY -- JUNE 2021

Once Upon a time last June, CircusWest performed 12 shows of ONCE UPON A CIRCUS. The show, featured CircusWest's PERFORMANCE TROUPE as they brought six fairytales to life to help a young girl navigate & gain control over her fears. The 90 minute production was staged around the PNE Gardens in seven different locations & featured large pop-up fairytale books, 4 outdoor aerial rigs, a 25 foot long tightwire, & a cast of circus fairytale characters come to life.
