The Games We Play

The Games We Play is all about the most charming charades of children – playing games.

Flipside Circus’ annual school show, this year titled The Games We Play, is a charming interpretation of the all-important work of children – playing games!

How about a brain (and body) workout with a giant chess act, or some stacking fun with circus Jenga? Even the classic arcade game Space Invaders gets a hilarious and clever remake with our circus-inspired version. With Twister, Snakes and even a Gladiator hoola hoop act, you’ll be itching to leave your seat and join in the fun.

The annual school show is the biggest Flipside Circus show of the year. A cast of over 30 young students from Foundations to Step Ups classes work with their trainers to create an original show.

The Games We Play is suitable for the entire family – grannies and grandpas, too! We’ll be barbecuing up a storm and serving an array of yummy treats, so best come hungry. All funds raised from the show go towards supporting our social circus programs.
