Roll up, roll up – a new circus has come to town.
Grandparents, parents and children alike will enjoy Circus McCabe’s Sinbad Show in Razorback.
Organiser and performer Patrick McCabe said the circus stage show will be a swashbuckling adventure that features a human canon, tightrope walkers, trapeze, fire twirling, juggling and uni-cycle riding.
The show will feature sword-wielding pirates and daring sailors as good versus evil.
“I want the audience to feel as though they have escaped and gone to a new magical world,” Mr McCabe said.
Mr McCabe said he, like many, always wanted to run away to the circus.
“A couple of years ago, I was living in Perth and a circus came to town,” he said. “I knocked on the door and I became a tent hand.
“I moved to Razorback and I wanted to work with my family so we bought a circus tent.
“Putting on the show means I can work with my brothers, parents and wife and we get to create a magical experience for people.
“This show will be like the old-fashioned circus – it will be a traditional and authentic experience for the whole family.
“There won’t any clowns or animals.
“It will be nice to perform on our property just outside Picton.
“It is unusual to have a circus in a rural town so we hope everyone comes along to see it.”
Mr McCabe said the proceeds of the show would go to a charity All for Life, Like for All which provides sponsoring for children and small business loans to people who live below the poverty line in India.
Performances will be held from Tuesday, September 26 to Sunday October 1 at 6:30pm. Friday to Sunday will also have matinée performance at 1pm.
Located at 1285 Menangle Road, Razorback. Tickets cost $20 for adults, $15 for students and $50 for a family (up to 8 children).
