CircusWest Presents Circus of Oz Win Tickets

Comments 44 by Rebecca Bollwitt

CircusWest Performing Arts Society’s latest production, Circus of Oz, features talented performance students from the CirKids program, bringing L. Frank Baum’s Wizard of Oz story to life in Vancouver.


Circus of Oz will run from May 7th until May 10th, 2015 at the historic PNE Garden Auditorium, offering something for circus fans of all ages.

CircusWest Artistic Director, Jay Nunns, continues to push the envelope of “circus through story telling” a style that is unique to the West Coast. Alongside other coaches and senior students, he has built a show inspired by the timeless L. Frank Baum’s Wizard of Oz story infused with aerial artistry, daring acrobatics, and compelling circus acts to amaze and delight.

The Circus of Oz features an innovative set design including portable projector screens that will move throughout the show to recreate each scene. For this year’s production, the CircusWest team has built a new 15 foot trampoline wall, framed like a house, from which performers will fly into the air. The show is taken to the next level with otherworldly projections by Production Assistant, Cameron Fraser, a CirKids alumni who has created breathtaking projections for stages across Canada and recently in the US.

The show features live music, dazzling costumes and a cleverly designed set with 30 sonotubes, which move to create various structures and act as screens where projections are displayed. Shows run daily at 12:30pm and 7:00pm, and Circus of Oz for $14 to $22 with special group rates available.

CircusWest, a registered charity, offers children, teens, and adults an opportunity to explore circus arts in an encouraging, non-competitive environment. CircusWest’s programs foster respect while providing an environment to learn responsible risk-taking. As a collaborative community in which everyone can develop skills and realize their potential, CircusWest is a creative space where individuals can dream big, push limits, and defy gravity all while having fun.
