SaskExpress Circus of Life comes to Moose Jaw
SaskExpress is bringing its exciting musical theater, CIRCLE OF LIFE to the Mae Wilson Theatre on Tuesday, July 10 at 7:30 pm.
SaskExpress’ vision encapsulates music, theatre and passion Igniting the talents of Saskatchewan’s young performers. The group produces cutting-edge original theatre shows relevant to today’s generation yet appealing to all demographics. They are bringing this cutting-edge theatre to the Friendly City with their summer show, CIRCUS OF LIFE. “We do two shows per year—winter and summer. This is a theatre performance which will be done for the first time in Moose Jaw. The CIRCUS OF LIFE has a great storyline that is sure to entertain our audience. There are six acts in the show. It’s a mixture of singing and dancing with an amazing storyline,” said Emma Peers, media coordinator at SaskExpress. Peers said this is a spectacular event that cannot be missed. “Envision the spectacle of the Big Top. The daring feats, the shocking displays, the glamour and the grotesque and place everyday life under those spotlights. CIRCUS OF LIFE takes the traditional three-ring circus and twists it to illuminate the mysteries, heroes, ecstasies and dangers of everyday existence. The death-defying act of falling in love; the hilarious clowns we find on YouTube; the courageous catch and release not of a trapeze but of loved ones during their passing. The Ringmaster is a DJ, orchestrating our tour of reality with live versions of current music, commanding two stellar musicians and eight powerhouse singers. The arresting physicality of our dancers flips carnival acts into gripping storytelling. Smart, contemporary and engaging to viewers f all ages. Sask Express’ CIRCUS OF LIFE is musical theatre like you’ve never seen it,” Peers said. CIRCUS OF LIFE is packed with current radio hits, splashy numbers from Broadway musicals, classic songs and hidden gems, all performed live with new arrangements by Craig Salkeld. SaskExpress says the show, with a story, arc through every act and is written and conceived by Danny Balkwill and choreographed by Maegan Marshall.
