Jacs Entertainment and Woodward Productions today announced the full cast for the Melbourne season of CIRQUE BON BON.

Joining the world-class, multi-talented cast in the acrobatic, dance and comedy-filled extravaganza will be dancers Jayden Grogan, Holly Soper, Hunter-Jai Clist and Tiara Locke.

CIRQUE BON BON will be led by world-renowned comedy emcee, Mario, Queen of the Circus (Clarke McFarlane), and will star a multi-talented cast including contortionist and foot archery artist Shannen Michaela who holds the Guinness world record for shooting an arrow the farthest with her feet; world-renowned Cyr Wheel artist Alexandre Lane; Aerial Hoop contortion and Hula Hoop artist Ashleigh Roper; Australia’s own hand to hand and skating duo Emma Goh and Scott Lazaravech; as well as juggler Cody Harrington and Aerial Straps and mouth hang artist Liam Dummer.

Ash Jacks, executive producer of Cirque Bon Bon said, “We’re thrilled to welcome Jayden, Holly, Hunter and Tiara to the CIRQUE BON BON company. As highly-skilled technical dancers, these four individuals are the perfect addition to our cirque troop. We can’t wait for Melbourne to experience their infectious energy and jaw-dropping skill.”

Hot on the heels of its sell-out run in Brisbane, CIRQUE BON BON’s all-star cast of contortionists, acrobats and dancers will transform the Athenaeum Theatre stage into a cauldron of excitement, drama and hilarity from 11 July.

CIRQUE BON BON is the brainchild of former Cirque Du Soleil Assistant Creative Director Ash Jacks and choreographer Julieann Nugent, and has attracted over 14,000 audiences in Brisbane, Adelaide and Noosa since it began in 2021.
