Fun-filled Family Treat at The Civic

Fun-filled Family Treat at The Civic

Get ready to laugh out loud – Canada’s Daredevil Opera Company is coming to The Civic with its side-splittingly funny family show Cirkus Inferno.

For the first time ever in New Zealand and presented by THE EDGE®, in association with Strut & Fret Production House, Daredevil Opera Company’s show Cirkus Inferno brings mess and mayhem to The Civic from November 25-29.

Exploding popcorn, water pistols, pyrotechnics, slapstick adventure, circus skills and outrageous visual effects combine in this fun-filled pre-Christmas treat.

Cirkus Inferno features Lucky (Jonah Logan) and Lady (Amy Gordon) – the world’s most dangerous clowns!

When Lucky and Lady show up for The Daredevil Opera Company’s Cirkus Inferno they find the main show is cancelled and this lovable pair of troublemakers create a new one as they find their way onto Rocket Johnny’s rocket pogo and Roxanne Roll’s jet skates, get tied to the Hound of Hades and even end up in Hula Lula’s grass skirt and ukelele.

“The whole piece bulging with slapstick powers towards an explosive finale making a fine mess into a stupendously great one. Hurray for anarchy and Canada and clowns.” – EdinburghGuide

“Here is every child’s dream come true: a pair of virtuoso clowns putting on a show that’s enormously messy, full of things that blow up and explode, with pratfalls and flame-throwing roller skates and fart jokes and action galore.” – The Seattle Times

Cirkus Inferno’s high-energy explosive fun is perfect for ages five to 105 and family tickets are available for $75.00 (service fee applies).

Book at Ticketek – Ph: 09 307-5000 or online at www.ticketek.com
