The circus is coming to town, but don’t head toward the showgrounds.

This Saturday from 2pm to 5pm, a Circus Extravaganza will be happening at Living Waters Church, 62 Allan St, Kyabram.

Circus Extravaganza promises all the fun and excitement of the circus, minus the big top, and will feature the entertainment of Two Up Circus and Eric the Red, along with a jumping castle and face painting.

Two Up Circus consists of the dynamite duo Kyle ‘‘Smiley’’ Raferty and April Dawson and features juggling, acrobatics, unicycle and contortion, all mixed in with a dash of laughter.

Kyle is one of Australia’s most sought after circus entertainers and has worked with companies such as Circus OZ, Cirque Du Monde and Flying Trapeze Australia.

He has performed at the Sydney Opera House Studio, Royal Exhibition Building, Australia’s premier children’s festival Fun 4 Kids and aboard various P&O Cruise Liners.

April has worked extensively in the circus and theatrical dance world.

Touring internationally in the circus from the age of 15, she has gained performance experience as a contortionist, dancer and acrobat during the past 10 years.

She has performed in the United States for Disney and Universal Studios, in Singapore for Discovery TV, aboard P&O cruise liners, and at major arts festivals across Australia. She has also worked with numerous circus companies.

Since developing his show in 2000, Eric The Red has toured across Australia, New Zealand and France with his original set of juggling tricks and balancing feats.

His wide-ranging experience includes arts and music festivals, agricultural shows, markets, street performances, private functions and corporate events.

Circus Extravaganza is a fundraising event, with all proceeds going to Kyabram P-12 College Chaplaincy.

Tickets cost $20 per family (two adults and two children), $10 per adult and $5 per student/concession and are available at Fab Flowers or at the door.

A variety of snacks and drinks will be available to buy.
