THE THRILL OF CIRCUS, THE MAYHEM OF MOZART IN WOLFGANG'S MAGICAL MUSICAL CIRCUS

Straight from the score and onto the stage, the man known as Mozart appears amid a storm of powder, tumbling and twirling, as musical mayhem and movement fuse in a family show with a circus twist - Wolfgang’s Magical Musical Circus at Griffith Regional Theatre on Thursday 2 May at 6pm.

To those who know him, he is Wolfgang, the dart-playing, pun-loving ratbag. To those watching and listening, he is the wigged genius Mozart. Discover his irrepressible spirit and vibrant composition in a fast moving, heart-warming dervish of physical comedy and mischievous antics.

Manager of Griffith Regional Theatre, Raina Savage said adults and children alike will adore this show.

“Designed to amaze people from the age of three upwards, Wolfgang’s Magical Musical Circus reinvents the composer’s magical music in a skilful and illuminating show featuring Circa’s daredevil artists and live music,” said Ms Savage.

‘Watch the notes physically lifted off the page as the amazing performers bring the well loved compositions to life in a storm of powder, tumbles and crashes, all under the eccentric swirl of the conductor’s baton.

“We are delighted to have Circa return with this fantastical, delicious family show. Our audiences love their blend of incredible skills and original story telling. They are guaranteed a top quality, thoroughly entertaining performance. “
