Shaun the Sheep's Circus Show coming to Cairns

And, sheep might fly….Australia’s internationally acclaimed circus ensemble, Circa, and Academy Award®-winning studio Aardman, are bringing Shaun the Sheep’s Circus Show to Cairns Performing Arts Centre, 26 to 28 March 2021.

 And, sheep might fly….Australia’s internationally acclaimed circus ensemble, Circa, and Academy Award®-winning studio Aardman, are bringing Shaun the Sheep’s Circus Show to Cairns Performing Arts Centre, 26 to 28 March 2021.

In its thrilling world premiere season, Shaun the Sheep’s Circus Show combines the extreme physicality and awe-inspiring feats of nine Circa acrobats with the playful charm of Aardman’s multi award-winning TV series, Shaun the Sheep.

Shaun is a sheep who doesn’t follow the flock – in fact, he leads them into all sorts of scrapes and scraps, turning peace in the valley into mayhem in the meadow. Whether they’re tormenting the weary postman or escaping the havoc of a runaway tyre, Shaun and his pals run rings around their poor sheepdog friend, Bitzer, and the oblivious Farmer.

Shaun the Sheep’s Circus Show 
is must-see family entertainment full of heart-warming comedy delights, daredevil acrobatics and vibrant choreography.

Shaun the Sheep first appeared on screen in the Wallace and Gromit film, A Close Shave. The spinoff animated television series first aired in 2007.  It is produced by Aardman, the creators of Wallace & Gromit and Chicken Run

According to Circa’s Artistic Director, Yaron Lifschitz the true achievement of Shaun the Sheep is the way in which he entertains across generations with hypnotising action sequences, a sharp wit and innocent sense of adventure that is typical of Aardman productions.

“The spirit of circus aligns with these qualities perfectly and we’re delighted to be extending Shaun’s Circus Show adventure with a season in Cairns,” Mr Lifschitz said.
