Dallas Circus 1903

CIRCUS 1903 –The Golden Age of Circus will play at the Music Hall at Fair Park May 23 – June 4, 2017, presented by Dallas Summer Musicals.

This North Texas premier has all the thrill and daredevil entertainment one would expect from the circus, with an exciting new twist.

Elephants at the Circus

That’s right – I told you not to judge about the elephants at the circus. Circus 1903 has created elephants like you’ve never seen before. With puppetry, they are putting Elephants back in the ring – introducing the largest ever performing African elephant and her baby, along with a huge cast of the most unique, amazing and dangerous circus acts from all four corners of the world, from strong men to contortionists, acrobats to musicians, knife throwers, high wire and much more

The award-winning team of puppeteers and model makers who created the National Theatre’s WAR HORSE have designed, built and brought to life two stunningly beautiful elephants for CIRCUS 1903 –The Golden Age of Circus. Featuring groundbreaking advances in design and expression, the puppets appear throughout the show as the mother teaches her calf the tricks of the trade.
