This is the story of two boys and two girls who have grown up in two families on the Gold Coast with a deep love of
circus. As children of circus parents, they would take every opportunity to see, watch, learn & study anything to do
Now as young adults, they are 4 of the Gold Coast’s most dynamic, young and in demand circus performers who have
come together for a dynamic new show, CIRKUS MAXIMAS which is just the tonic for this year’s school holidays!
Ringmaster Rhett Morrow, at just 27 is a veteran of the stage. As a two-time winner of the Australian Street
Performance Championships who was brought up on circus, he has also worked & studied overseas at the incredibly
prestigious Beijing International Circus School which routinely turns out the best circus performers in the world.
