Circus starts tonight

Deniliquin Pastoral Times - - OUT & ABOUT -

It’s been two years since Circus Royale last set up its big top at De­niliquin’s Me­mo­rial Park, and it is back again tonight.

Pre­sented by Damian Syred, four per­for­mances will be held over the next three days, open­ing tonight from 7.30pm.

Two per­for­mances will be held to­mor­row at 4pm and 7.30pm, and the fi­nal show at 11am on Sun­day.

Each per­for­mance is a two hour hu­man and do­mes­tic an­i­mal show, with one in­ter­mis­sion.

With 20 elite ath­letes and per­form­ers, Circus Royale brings to­gether a com­bi­na­tion of acrobatics, com­edy and deathde­fy­ing stunts in a show that will have you on the edge of your seat.

The Dare­dev­ils from Mex­ico — sib­lings Hugo, Bran­don and Geral­dine Fer­nan­dez — will fea­ture in the thrilling Globe of Death per­for­mance. On mo­tor­bikes, they ma­noeu­vre around a 4m cage at speeds of up to 80km/h.

Geral­dine, who is now 18, is be­lieved to be the only fe­male rider to tackle the Globe of Death in Aus­tralia.

‘‘Some­times, if they don’t know I’m a girl, the crowd is re­ally shocked,’’ Geral­dine said.

‘‘We have been rid­ing to­gether for a long time, so we know how each other rides and we know when we ride we are safe,” older brother Hugo added.

The show also in­cludes Pan­cholin the Chilean Clown, who will keep circus-go­ers of all ages en­ter­tained with his comic an­tics. There’s also a colour­ful ring­mas­ter, acro­batic artistry, foot­ball play­ing dogs, danc­ing horses, young jug­glers and baby camels.

‘‘This is a real old-fash­ioned tra­di­tional circus, the way it was from our child­hood,’’ Mr Syred said.

‘‘It’s big, ex­cit­ing and won­der­ful fam­ily en­ter­tain­ment.’’

Adult tick­ets start from $25 per per­son, de­pend­ing on your choice of seat­ing. Con­ces­sion tick­ets start at $20 per per­son and tick­ets for chil­dren aged two to 14 start from $15 per per­son. All chil­dren must be ac­com­pa­nied by a pay­ing adult.

Peo­ple should ar­rive at least 30 minutes be­fore show­time.
