Riverside Theatres' SPOT ON Children's Festival Presents Circus Oz

Circus Oz – But Wait…There’s More!


Riverside Theatre


01 October - 03 October 2015



Following the premiere in Melbourne under the Big Top, an action-packed national tour across Queensland including a season in the Brisbane Festival, and a smash-hit international tour across America to Montreal, Circus Oz rockets into Riverside Theatres with the brand new show But Wait…There’s More.

Performed within a spectacular large-scale set inspired by an abandoned theatre in tatters, the touring circus troupe arrive, with hula showstoppers, and unicycle jaw-droppers, they delight and entertain. The MC interacts with the audience, hip hop style, this is LIVE and the audience can feel the authenticity. Circus Oz is always a celebration of diversity.

With an astonishing mix of stunt-jumping acrobatics, cutting-edge juggling, virtuosic hoop diving, elegant flying trapeze, cheeky impersonations, ridiculous knockabout and multi-skilled human physical exuberance, But Wait…There’s More is pure entertainment. An exhilarating two-hour spectacle for audiences of all ages.

Dates & Times:
Thursday 1 October 7pm
Friday 2 October 1pm
Saturday 3 October 1pm & 7pm

Please note, children must be accompanied by a parent/guardian at all times, including performances and workshops. Riverside Theatres is not responsible for the supervision of children.
