“Winter magic and Enchantment is heading to UK Theatres this autumn, Thanks to Umbrella Productions new show CIRQUE ENCHANTMENT! This concert style cirque production features stunning choreography, breathtaking vocals and mesmerizing cirque performers. Great live entertainment for audience’s young and old.

What follows is an adventure through good and evil lead by the captivating vocals of Miss Enchantra. With an eclectic musical soundtrack that offers something for everyone, including current hits from One Direction, Sia, Paloma Faith, Rihanna and Beyonce in addition to a mix of classical, rock, dance and classic favorites. Cirque Enchantment is a striking production that will delight adults and children in equal measure.

Review by Richard Lambert, 5 Stars
A fusion of circus skills, daring performances, incredible singing, strong dancing, stylish choreography, stunnning costumes, staging, pop songs, great lighting (Tim Austin and Jon Smith) ……this show is a wowzer from start to finish! There is something for everyone, the pace doesn’t let up, and without a doubt this is a fantastic entertainment experience!
Punch after punch of talent all brought together in a most creative manner by Stuart Glover of Umbrella Productions. The right decision made on Song Choices throughout! It’s not easy to mesh circus performance into a story and make such risk and skill almost, but not quite, incidental to the story. It takes real talent to take all this on board and highlights that the cast are masters of their crafts!
I caught up with this UK tour at a “half-term” performance in Potters Bar – young couples, families, children, mums, dads, grans – everybody was fully engaged watching Cirque Enchantment. This is a unique show touring UK theatres.
Now audiences have finally lost their apetite for watching cruelty to animals, thankfully many circuses have closed. Ringling Bros, the largest provider of family entertainment closed “The Greatest Show on Earth” on May 21st, 2017 – and not before time. There is a new genre of entertainment now springing up – Cirque du Soleil, Cirque Eloize, Circus of Horrors are part of this evolution. Circus schools are springing up and provide an alternative to drama stage schools. Old Tyme Musical Hall theatre is now nostalgic, the “end of pier” variety show has had it’s time. Cirque Enchantment is part of a new breed and now here as a show for everyone!!! It’s not parents enduring “Frozen” or smiling through clenched teeth at the latest lego trivia. This is a show to take your mum, your teenager, your child or your partner to go – and really enjoy!
The show had a well deserved Standing Ovation! Leaving the theatre on a high and listening to the praise, comments and excitement of fellow audience members, Cirque Enchantment is undoubtedly 5 Star!!! Catch it when it comes to your local theatre and be one of the first to experience and enjoy this entertainment evolution – details for the tour below.
