This show takes place at The Plowright Theatre
Ticket are priced £8 each and £7 concessions. Booking fee may apply.
Milly and Josh go on a journey with Esmerelda a toy unicorn through the carousel of dreams, an entertaining show filled with song and dance where Esmerelda discovers her strength and determination. Suitable for all ages and sure to entertain.
The Circus Of Horrors have come a long way since first experiencing them on Britain’s Got Talent. Obviously on a TV audition a lot more is crammed into a small slot of time so I wasn’t quite sure what the full show would entail or how it would be padded out.
Initially first impressions were made by the dazzling set. The props and set design are interesting in themselves.
The show is filled with bright lights and lots of fire and smoke so be prepared to see some pretty fancy staging. The introduction to the show was very comical and got the crowd nicely warmed up with plenty laughable innuendos then it’s onto a great aircraft style introduction video. I don’t mean it says wear your seatbelts (it maybe should) but it makes a fun instructional video and warns people of a nervous disposition to “F**k Off”. I’d say this is pretty acurate as if you’re easily offended or ridiculously squeamish then you are probably at the wrong show because what you are about to see digs deep into some people’s emotions of shock, horror and amazement. I will also warn that if you are crazily scared of clowns then please be prepared as some people in the audience looked at though they may faint or cry at this part of the show. I won’t say what happens but I will say the show does get involved with mixing in the audience at times.
I really loved the accompanying videos on the multiple screens throughout the performance and the camera man filming the show for the screens did a brilliant job at focusing on the detail of what was going on. In shows like this when you are rows away from the action it can sometimes be a little hard to see and then in turn results in it being less dramatic but the close ups were brilliant. The pyrotechnics and lighting arrangements were quite striking. At times the lights used to illuminate the audience were a little blinding but never the less a very good arrangement.
I am not going to write a play by play of what happened in the show because this show is based on it’s element of surprise so if I went into “this happened and that happened” then you would know what to expect. This show is definitely one that’s better left a mystery until you see it. Although the nice man sat next to me said he had been many times before and enjoyed it more and more each time he came. The shows full live band and the vocals throughout were powerful and rocky and the female vocalist especially had a great rock range.
Be prepared to see some full frontal nudity of the male and female origin and bare in mind this is advised for more mature audiences so the advisory is 16+. There are some pretty raunchy costumes.
All the acts in the show are great entertainers and all dressed to perfection and you will not be bored or disappointed, maybe a bit horrified at some parts but mostly entertained. The show builds suspense nicely as the audience watch intently to see what will happen next.
There is a lot to see from the cast from contortion, to swinging around in the air by their hair to swallowing or attaching things to themselves that you didn’t think possible and plenty of fire to warm your face.
The show is built around the element of combining a freak show and circus into one, which works very well. There were a lot of impressive things throughout the show and I would definitely go see it again next time it comes to the area. I would recommend this show as a MUST SEE. Some shows I walk away and wonder are people getting their money’s worth here, well with this show I don’t need to wonder because YES, YOU ARE! It is great value for money.
