February 25, 2016 by Perthshire Creates
‘Coulrophobia : a fear of clowns’ is not uncommon, whether it’s the clown’s costume, make-up or facial features, many children develop a fear of clowns which can stay with them into their adult years.
If freakish performances entertain you and you don’t suffer from coulrophobia, read on to find out more about the Circus of Horrors new production ‘Welcome to the Carnival’, which comes to Perth as part of it’s world tour on Saturday 5th March 2016.
Their latest incarnation ‘Welcome to the Carnevil’ is set in Victorian London in 1899, Jack the Ripper was still at large & this was the age of the Freakshow. Three young & damned adolescents dream of running away to join the Circus, only to see their dream become a nightmare in a decrepit & corpse ridden Carnevil. The show features a plague of killer clowns, sword swallowers, death defying aerialists, back flipping & fire limboing acrobats and a Guinness World Record holding hairculian diva swinging solely from her hair. A show ruled by the undead & climaxing in an awesome flaming apocalypse.
The story twists and turns with grisly murders and sensational shock’s – all interwoven with some of the greatest and most bizarre circus acts on earth, performed by an almighty cast with a forked tongue firmly in each cheek and the devil driven rock n’ roll of Dr Haze & The Interceptors from Hell.
The show rose to fame after storming into the finals of Britain’s Got Talent before becoming a West End & now a world wide hit. It’s even made history by becoming the first UK circus to appear in Japan & Russia.
