CircusWest Takes You to the Magical Land of Oz! CircusWest Artistic Director, Jay Nunns, continues to push the envelope of “circus through story telling” a style that is unique to the West Coast. Alongside other coaches and senior students, he has built a show inspired by the timeless L. Frank Baum’s Wizard of Oz story infused with aerial artistry, daring acrobatics, and compelling circus acts to amaze and delight. The Circus of Oz features an innovative set design including portable projector screens that will move throughout the show to recreate each scene. For this year’s production, the CircusWest team has built a new 15 foot trampoline wall, framed like a house, from which performers will fly into the air. The show is taken to the next level with otherworldly projections by Production Assistant, Cameron Fraser, a CirKids alumni who has created breathtaking projections for stages across Canada and recently in the US. The Circus of Oz runs for four days at the PNE Garden Auditorium, Vancouver, BC, May 7-10, 2015 with shows daily at 12:30pm & 7:00pm. Tickets cost $14 – $22 (special group rates available) and can be purchased online by visiting circuswest.com/tickets-to-oz.
