The Circus Is Back In Town! Celebrate And See The Show!

Last week, the sensational cast and crew of Las Vegas’ newest stage production, CIRCUS 1903 celebrated their opening night performance at Paris Theater at Paris Las Vegas. Featuring the world’s most talented performers and breathtaking puppeteering, the new resident production transported the filled room of invited guests and theatergoers back to the golden age of circus with thrilling acts and all of the nostalgia that made the era one to never forget.

Sharing the story of traditional circus, the big top production presented awe-inspiring and death-defying acts such as aerial acrobatics, high-wire walking, body contortion and many others, mixed with heart-warming moments featuring the world’s largest performing elephants, Queenie and Peanut, who are brought to life through groundbreaking design and puppeteering. Ringmaster Willy Whipsnade kept the laughter rolling throughout the one-act production, and the high-spirited audience delivered nearly non-stop applause in return to the extraordinary cast before giving them a full standing ovation at their final curtain call.

Vegas has seen many shows come and go but we are really hoping that this show is here to stay. Forget about the huge special effects and come see the show that celebrates pure talent. The blog is huge on animal activism, so not to see live animals but enjoy the magic that is the circus makes this show very special. We were seated next to a young girl around 9 and she was mesmerized. A great show for the entire family.  

In attendance of the premiere performance was the production’s director, Neil Dorward and creative producer Simon Painter, as well as several celebrities and local performers, including The Gazillionaire and Melody Sweets from ABSINTHE Las Vegas, cast members from MAGIC MIKE LIVE LAS VEGAS, magician Mac King, cast members from Chippendales, DIVAS star Frank Marino, comedy hypnotist Anthony Cools, mentalist Frederic Da Silva, and magician Murray SawChuck.
