The Magnificent and Spectacular Circus Comes to Waikari School


In the last week of Term Three Waikari School presented their school production. The story line evolved around Joey who after receiving a bad school report decides he is useless at everything. Joey decides to run away to the  circus and try the acts to see if he has a circus talent. Unfortunately everything seems to go wrong. Eventually Joey (Finn Fricker) finds that he can drum and the performance ends with the children singing and dancing to “Try Everything” from the movie Zootopia. 

The circus acts included juggling, acrobats, clowns, performing animals, sharp edge Eddie - the knife thrower and many more. The final act being a DJ Philip the ventriloquist dummy played expertly and hilariously  by Tanner Barton. 

Both the matinee and night performance played to full houses.


Waikari School would like to thank the Hurunui District Council for their financial support through the Creative Community Funding.
