Together Apart Summer Cirque: A Summer Tale
From The Concierge Club, producer of Toronto’s highly successful POLAR Drive Holiday drive through event, comes Together Apart Summer Cirque: A Summer Tale.
This never-before-seen outdoor, live theatrical cirque show is set to amaze audiences starting July 1, Canada Day.
Canada’s own, world renowned production company, The 7 Fingers, creates this exclusive acrobatic theatrical production— its first in-person presentation since the world locked down, more than a year ago.
Live, outdoor performances will run Thursday through Sunday nights, weekly until August 1 at the Markham Fairgrounds. Early-bird tickets for the one-hour performances go on sale May 10 and are available at www.togetherapartcirque.com.
This event will be fully compliant with government Covid-19 safety regulations. Partial proceeds will be donated to the Restaurants Canada mental health initiative.
A Summer Tale takes audiences into a fantasy world where the lives of 10 familiar, magical characters converge at a ball to celebrate the summer solstice.
As they interact with one another in drama, delight, and acrobatic feats; an enchanting story unfolds. A sensation of sight, sound and emotion, A Summer Tale promises to dazzle audiences with heart-pounding cirque performances, stunning costume design, breathtaking staging, audience engagement and ruckus musical beats.
