Tour FAQs

Q: Is this family friendly? Can I bring my kids?
A: Absolutely. This is a show for all ages!

Q: Does Circus 1903 feature a live elephant?
A: No. The elephants featured in Circus 1903 are puppets, brought to life by the talented team at Significant Object (the award-winning puppeteers from War Horse). Circus 1903 is a very unique show in that it takes aspects of the traditional circus but puts a fresh, innovative and more humane spin on them. One of those new directions is using carefully constructed and realistic puppets in place of actual animals.
