When the Circus of Horrors started in Glastonbury ’95 people thought it would not run for 25 weeks let alone 25 years, yet here we are a quarter of a century later and The Circus of Horrors is still touring all over the World and still getting rave reviews
AND NOW THE SHOW IS BACK IN SPECTACULAR FASHION IN DORSET THIS AUGUST!
Local Woman returns to Wimborne as The Circus of Horrors comes out of Lockdown to become one of the first live shows to perform at the Tivoli theatre since the start of the pandemic!
‘The Circus of Horrors are itching to get back to what they know best, producing the best rip roaring sensational Entertainment, -Says Stephanie Bates who is an aerialist and plays a part of Sinister Sister in The Circus of Horrors
‘I am very much looking forward to returning to the Tivoli in Wimborne, I used to see shows there when I was young and my parents would often bring me there when the venue was used as a cinema’ she continues.
‘The Circus of Horrors is the first show at The Tivoli since the pandemic and the great thing about this venue is everyone will see the show really close up, so everyone gets a great view of our amazing & bizarre acts and we are very proud to be the show back at The Tivoli, I grew up just down the road in Corfe Mullen’
Stephanie who’s signature act involves her hanging from the roof of the auditorium by just her teeth adds ‘We promise the people of Dorset great entertainment!’
The new ReBorn, ReVamped & Rockin show will be a celebration of its amazing history and will include a fangtastic phantasmaglorious amalgamation of acts, driven by a rock ‘n’ roll sound scape, a show that will have you sat on the edge of your seat when not falling off it with laughter.
From Sword Swallowers to Hairculean aerialists hanging from their hair & their teeth whilst suspended above the auditorium, Whirlwind Jugglers to Voodoo Acrobats, Pickled People, Hula Hooping Divas to Human pin cushions and lots more!
The almighty cast that stormed into the finals of Britain’s Got Talent is now a West End & World Wide Smash. The show will take you on a rock n’ roller coaster ride of amazing & Bizarre acts. It is a circus like no other and a show you simply can’t afford to miss.
Whether a Rock fan or theatregoer The Circus of Horrors has something for everyone.
Imagine a brilliant rock show combined with amazing, bizarre, dare devil & downright beautiful Circus acts, a stella light show and all performed with a forked tongue firmly in each cheek. If Quentin Tarantino had directed Cirque Du Soleil you would be half way there.
It was phenomenal, one of those shows that if you missed you would say Gosh I wish I could have seen that’.
