Looking for some wholesome, family-friendly entertainment that will have you laughing, gasping and tapping your toes? Look no further than Shaun the Sheep’s Circus Show, the latest offering from presenter Base Entertainment Asia and producer Circa Contemporary Circus, who brought you the fantastic Carnival of the Animals in March 2022.
Shaun the Sheep, the beloved character from the popular television series launched in 2017, has become an international favourite, recognized for its slapstick humour, unique appearance and eccentric characters. The character has even spawned two critically acclaimed feature films, becoming a full-fledged film franchise.
This May, audiences in Singapore will be treated to the international premiere of Shaun the Sheep’s Circus Show, which promises to captivate families and audiences of all ages. The show combines Aardman’s signature animation of the Mossy Bottom Farm crew with live performance from Circa, creating a captivating mix of live action acrobatics and on-screen animation.
The show does not have any spoken dialogue, but the story is told perfectly through animation, movement, dance, theatre, circus skills, mime, and slapstick comedy. Audiences will be treated to the playful charm, mischief, and slapstick humour of Shaun the Sheep mixed brilliantly with Circa’s daredevil acrobatics that will draw audible gasps from the audience.
The storyline of the show revolves around Shaun, who sets off to arrange for a bigger triumph for his flock of sheep. The adventures of Shaun and his farmyard friends underline a subtle theme about creating our own entertainment without reliance on digital and electronic devices.
Shaun the Sheep’s Circus Show is produced by Shaun Comerford and Yaron Lifschitz with QPAC, Screen Queensland, Merrigong Theatre Company, and Circa Contemporary Circus by special arrangement with Aardman Animations. Critics have praised the show, with the Sydney Morning Herald describing it as “so entertaining, and so packed with physical marvels, that no child who sees it will ever forget it.”
