AND SCENE!

CircusWest is on hand at Safeway at Denman and Robson downtown promoting SCENE+ cards.
Our crackerjack circus team of Stefan, Julian and Sherry perform a one minute command performance for new SCENE+ members once they sign up in the store.
The reactions are hilarious as people are in shock, that they alone, are the reason for a personalized circus show.
Come on down, sign up, and you too may get a customized circus performance just for you!

A SUPERNATURAL CIRCUS!

Thanks to Arts Whistler and the Maury Young Arts Centre for a hosting our FIREFLIGHT - Supernatural Circus show this evening!
Our cast all commented on how wonderful and supportive the Whistler audience was — following our circus parable about protecting the environment and ultimately revealing your spirit animal.
FIREFLIGHT was the first production of Arts Whistler’s 2022/23 season — and we are honoured to help them kick off their season.
Now, we look to continue the conversation with Whistler and to develop a spectacular Sea to Sky Circus show celebrating the region, BC and the Pacific Northwest.
Dream BIG with CircusWest!

TECHNICAL REHEARSAL

CircusWest is prepping for our show tonight at Whistler’s Maury Young Theatre.
We are stoked because the 8:00pm show is SOLD OUT! It will be so awesome to perform our Supernatural Circus Show ‘FIREFLIGHT’ to an excited theatre crowd.
And now, to do some final preparations before the curtain rises.
