Circa Contemporary Circus has joined forces with animation studio Aardman to create a new circus-theatre production, “Shaun the Sheep’s Circus Show.”

Queensland has secured the World Premiere season to be held at QPAC’s Lyric Theatre in March 2021.

“Shaun the Sheep is a global phenomenon,” says Annastacia Palaszczuk, premier of Queensland. “It’s great to see Circa — one of the state’s most successful performance companies — premiere this show here in Queensland.”

Australia’s Minister for the Arts Leeanne Enoch envisions “Shaun the Sheep” will be able to play to full houses and engage the young and the young at heart.

“’Shaun the Sheep’ is a family favorite throughout the world and to have this production here is a fantastic win for Queensland,” says Enoch. “The arts, cultural and creative sector plays a crucial role in our COVID-19 recovery, bringing our communities back together and supporting jobs for artists and arts workers.”

“Shaun the Sheep’s Circus Show” is being supported by the Queensland

Government through a unique three-way partnership, comprising investment from Screen Queensland, Arts Queensland funding via the Queensland Arts Showcase Program and QPAC as the

Presenting Partner. The project has also been made possible by the Federal Government’s Restart Investment to Sustain and Expand (Rise) fund.

“Circa’s Shaun the Sheep’s Circus Show will continue to build Brisbane’s reputation as one of the world’s significant circus cities and I’m very pleased the Morrison Government has lent its support to this new family-focused Production,” says Trevor Evans MP, federal member, Brisbane.  “There is no better place for the world premiere to occur than right here in Brisbane.”
