BRAVO! BRAVO! BRAVO!

We, at CircusWest, could not be more proud of the AMAZING CAST of THE GOLDEN TICKET featuring our Performance and Apprentice Troupes. This same sentiment goes to the ENSEMBLE Troupe who did a superb pre-show on Friday through Sunday.
This cast was special! It was one of the most supportive, focussed and eager casts in CircusWest history — who were so happy to perform on a stage again in front of a LIVE AUDIENCE. In fact, due to COVID, only five of the cast members had done a circus show in a theatre setting before. So, they were all keen to give it everything had to make it a success!
The result on stage was truly amazing! Today was an emotional day as it was show closing and it was the final day of programming — and the last time we will see each other until The Fall.
It was also the last show for many of the cast who will be going to post secondary studies and other pursuits next year. Many have been in CircusWest for 10+ years!
And now, the work begins to take down the lights, the projector, the cyclorama, speakers, and set pieces and start dreaming of our show for next year.
WE ARE EXCEPTIONALLY PROUD OF ALL OF OUR PERFORMERS, CREW, MAKEUP ARTISTS, HAIR WRANGLERS, COACHES, VOLUNTEERS, CREATIVE TEAM, ADMINISTRATION, AUDIENCES and all that made THE GOLDEN TICKET the amazing success it was!
All we can say is BRAVO! You did a very good thing!

THE MIDAS TOUCH!

THE GOLDEN TICKET is a FAN FAVOURITE! Audience members have said it is one of the BEST CIRCUSWEST SHOWS in the last 10 years.
Come and see what ALL THE BUZZ is about!
We have 4 shows left today and tomorrow at 12:30pm & 7:00pm. But, be advised, get tickets early as tickets are being scooped up due to the positive reviews -- and people coming to see the show a second, and in some cases, a third time.
Come and witness CircusWest's latest creation showcasing B.C's aspiring young circus artists as they weave a tale of wonder and adventure in Willy Wonka's wacky chocolate factory.
We are proud of what we have created and want as many people to se it as possible in the next two days.
Bring your family, you grandparents, your friends, your enemies, and your long lost cousin to the show -- and support local circus and CircusWest in the process.

THE GOLDEN TICKET HAS ARRIVED!

THE THE GOLDEN TICKET debuts today.
After months of hard work, training, rehearsals -- IT IS FINALLY HERE.
We look forward to sharing our circus adaptation of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory with you. We can't wait to perform in a theatre again -- complete with lights, sounds and projections -- after a 3 year hiatus. Sure, we stage shows outside since 2020 but there is something special about LIVE THEATRE in front of A LIVE AUDIENCE.
The show is chalk full of acrobatics, aerials, object manipulation, tramp walls, handstands, dance, unicycles, bikes, German Wheels, and a few other surprises.
We'd love to come out and share in the magic of circus with us.

RINGMASTERS BACKSTAGE!
Sneak peak at Saturday Ringmasters performers backstage as they wait for their group pyramid act to start. CircusWest showcases started on Monday and our last performances are tomorrow. It has been an incredible year as things slowly returned to normal and we could bring out all of our fun circus toys and equipment once again.
Thank you to all who supported CircusWest over the last few years — and for your ongoing support this year, this summer, and next!
Congrats to all our students who worked so hard and gave it their all! You deserve much applause!
See you at the circus!
