Moose Jaw - - Sports - Sasha-Gay Lob­ban

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.
