A "jaw-dropping" musical theatre and circus show is set to play in St Albans.

Cirque - The Greatest Show will play at The Alban Arena - in Civic Close - from Friday, July 21, until Sunday, July 23.

West End stars will take to the stage with circus performers, while "the biggest hits from the greatest musicals of all time" are played.

Contortionists, trapeze artists and aerialists will all perform.


James Taylor, company director of concert show specialists Entertainers, said: "It’s a smash-hit circus musical and is guaranteed fun for all the family.

"It takes you on a truly wondrous journey as a monochrome life bursts joyously into kaleidoscopic colour.

"From The Greatest Showman to Moulin Rouge, Hairspray to Rocketman the Musical, there’s something for everyone, all brought to the stage in unique, spellbinding style.”

"(The show is) a cracking new spectacular suitable for all ages.
