Antics for tots at Drum circus musical

Roll up for a circus musical show at Drum Theatre in Dandenong this Thursday.

Big Tops for Little Tots pits five circus artists from the National Institute of Circus Arts performing acrobatics and ninja-juggling among live music and singing.

It follows a shy girl’s journey in making friends and learning tricks from clowns and acrobats. The show, designed for 3-10 year olds and their families, is part of Greater Dandenong’s month-long children’s festival. It premiered with sold-out shows at the 2011 Melbourne Circus Festival.

Audience members can come dressed as clowns and bring their favourite stuffed circus animal toys for before- and after-show antics.

The show is on at 10.30am and 1pm on Thursday at Drum Theatre, corner Lonsdale and Walker streets, Dandenong. Bookings: 9771 6666 or For more on the Greater Dandenong Children’s Festival go to
