Shaun the Sheep’s Circus Show

★★★★ “…Shaun the Sheep Circus Show is so entertaining, and so packed with physical marvels, that no child who sees it will ever forget it.”


Two worlds gleefully collide when the internationally-acclaimed Australian circus ensemble Circa and Academy Award®-winning studio Aardman, bring Shaun the Sheep to the stage.

Shaun the Sheep’s Circus Show combines the extreme physicality and awe-inspiring feats of Circa and the playful charm of the multi-award-winning TV series Shaun the Sheep.

The entire family will be treated to a visual spectacle, packed full of Aardman’s signature wit and outright hilarity, as the Circa ensemble continues to blur the lines between movement, dance, theatre and circus. Shaun and the flock will entertain the audience through incredible feats of daredevil acrobatics and vibrant circus skills.

Shaun the Sheep’s Circus Show is must-see family entertainment full of heart-warming comedy delights.
