Circa Contemporary Circus, one of the world’s leading performance companies, has joined forces with Aardman to create a new circus-theatre production for audiences of all ages, Shaun the Sheep’s Circus Show.
Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk announced today that Queensland had secured the World Premiere season to be held at QPAC’s Lyric Theatre in March 2021.
“Thanks to the way Queenslanders have managed the coronavirus pandemic, we’re now able to return to the theatre,” the Premier said.
“Today’s announcement is a great win for Queensland, not only for our arts community but also for our economy as we continue to rebuild from the pandemic.
“Shaun the Sheep is a global phenomenon. It’s great to see Circa—one of the state’s most successful performance companies—premiere this show here in Queensland.
“The arts industry employs thousands of people throughout the state. World class productions like this will help this sector to recover from the impact of COVID-19.”
Minister for the Arts Leeanne Enoch said Shaun the Sheep will be able to play to full houses and engage the young and the young at heart.
