With restrictions starting to ease up a few New England clubs have embarked on a cautious approach to bringing back shows.
Inverell RSM Club has partnered with Coffs Harbour-based booking agency JLE to bring the Gold Coast acrobatic children's show Cirkus Maximas to the town.
The show will perform in Inverell on Friday, April 9, but almost two weeks out all the tickets have already been sold.
Although for families willing to travel tickets are still available for a Glen Innes show at 3pm on the same day, and another in Armidale the following day.
For those families who are going to the Inverell show, the promoter said they have a lot to look forward to.
"We are delighted to do something for the families for the school holidays and this show looks like it hits the mark," John Logan from JLE said this week.
"It's ideal for kids and parents alike and all shows are at family friend times. Mums and dads and carers will like it as well as there are plenty of laughs in the show. These guys are young and highly skilled as well as very funny."
Ringmaster Rhett O'Hara, the leader of the troupe and show emcee was excited when the event was announced.
"We did a tour in January but couldn't get dates for the New England so we asked our agent to please include some of these towns. Three clubs came on board and we couldn't be happier."
Cirkus Maximas is a young four piece acrobatic troupe from the Gold Coast and despite the oldest being only twenty seven years old, three of the four have worked and studied overseas at the prestigious Beijing School of Circus.
They are all veterans of circus and regularly star in Gold Coast Carnivale as well as having performed at dozens of festivals including the Surfers Paradise Street Entertainment Championships that Rhett won twice and where they met John Logan.
"I'd seen a lot of kids shows over the years and a lot of them were just average so when I saw these guys, I thought we just have to get this group into the clubs," John said.
"They are brilliant and combine comedy with acrobatics, and make the show fun for both adults and kids. Mum will love it just as much as the kids. That's their secret".
