Join the Circus!

Roll up! Roll up! For the great Merredin circus!

For four days come to the Cummins Theatre and learn everything you need to know to run away with the circus!

Each day is just $5 per student per day or $20 for all four days including the final performance. If you come each day you can also perform in our very own Circus Extravaganza where you can put all your new found skills into practice complete with make-up and costumes in our very own three ringed circus!

We ask that all participants wear shorts, long pants, or tights that are comfortable to move around in. We will then provide both parents and children with a safety briefing before the first workshop commences. Parents are not required to stay with their children during the sessions but are welcome to wait in the Tivoli Room while the classes are in progress. There are strict number limits to these classes and all children must pre-register in order to participate.
