The jugglers, tumblers, actors and clowns of Canning Vale College have organised a day of circus entertainment at City Farm tomorrow, Sunday, February 19. CVC is one of the only schools in WA to offer circus as a subject, and its accomplished troupe normally does a Fringe show. It got turned down this year because Fringe’s high profile is making the application process more competitive, so the troupe organised their own event.
Year 12 student Grace Guppy, who does hoop, acting, and clowning for the troupe, has been in the circus since year 8 and reckons this performance is even more exciting than their regular shows because it’s all been organised by the students. ‘Circus at the Farm’ will run from 12.15pm – 5pm on Sunday 19 February at City Farm, East Perth. Tickets can be bought through trybooking.com.
