Step right up and step back in time with “CIRCUS 1903 – The Golden Age of Circus,” a new production show coming to Paris Las Vegas in July.

“CIRCUS 1903” brings audiences back to the turn of the century, a time when the circus was a spectacle when it rolled into town.

That thrilling and magical moment is alive in this show, which features a cast of exotic and amazing circus acts from around the world. Expect to see everything from strong men to contortionists to acrobats, high wire artists and musicians. The action is moved along by the charismatic ringmaster/emcee Willy Whipsnade.

“After playing to sell-out theaters and enthralling audiences of all ages through Australia and North America, we are thrilled to be afforded the opportunity to present our acclaimed, spectacular production in such a perfect theater at Paris Las Vegas,” said creative producer Simon Painter of the Works Entertainment. “We are grateful to our local partners for their invaluable support and look forward to being part of the entertainment tapestry at Caesars Entertainment for years to come.”

When you think circus, you probably think elephants. The majestic animal has traditionally been the star of a big top show. In “CIRCUS 1903,”  the producers of the world’s biggest magic show, “The Illusionist,” teamed up with the award-winning puppeteers from “War Horse” to create life-size, realistic elephant puppets as the show’s centerpiece.

In the show you’ll see a mother and a baby elephant named Queenie and Peanut. It takes four puppeteers to operate Queenie – three inside and one out in front. The baby elephant is controlled by one puppeteer. The skilled puppet’s movements and mannerisms will make you feel like you’re watching the real thing.

The show keeps the 1900s vibe going with authentic turn-of-the-century-style costumes by Angela Aaron. The costumes were inspired by historic circus photographs and museum pieces.

Audiences will also be wowed by the sets. The first act of the show is set outside the circus tent and in the second act the stage is transformed into a big top complete with striped fabric walls.

Don’t miss this family-friendly show, set to open at Paris Las Vegas July 25. Tickets are priced from $49 and go on sale Friday, June 30 at 10 a.m. The show will perform in the Paris Theater Tuesday through Sunday at 7 p.m., with additional performances at 3 p.m. on Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday, and will be dark on Monday.
