The Circus Firemen

There’s mischief going on in the Cornucopia at Gluttony and it’s not coming from the packed-out audience of children and accompanying adults. On the stage, Angus and Matilda, the titular firemen are throwing beach balls at folk and generally messing around as they wait for the cue to start the show. It perfectly sets the mood for the chaos to follow.

Excellent ladder balancing, juggling, acrobalance and tumbling

The Circus Firemen is a circus show for children presented by two incredibly skilled performers who get that children don’t want to be patronised to, and that there needs to be enough in there to keep the grown-ups happy too. In amongst the excellent ladder balancing, juggling, acrobalance and tumbling there’s plenty of one-liners and knowing jokes to the audience that keep the children giggling and the adults wondering if the children are laughing for the same reasons.

With so much circus at the Adelaide Fringe, it can be difficult to choose which shows might suit if you have the responsibility of finding entertainment for children of varying ages and attention spans and The Circus Firemen is the answer to your dilemma.
