An enormous woman with sumptuously brocaded child-bearing hips glides around event grounds effortlessly as if propelled from beneath. She shares social tittle-tattle with the audience as she careers between them.

When at last she chooses her spot to stop, the orchestra from beneath her petticoats tunes up and with great aplomb, her skirts open to reveal a full theatre and a series of theatrical surprises.

An enchanting line up of short vaudeville and circus acts, amusingly compered by the great lady herself with plenty of audience participation. 

The Dress Circle can be adapted into Elizabethan show with the full white collar ruff and red curly wig of Queen Elizabeth I to suit Shakespeare themed events as well as a Mexican Day of the Dead Halloween Dress show! 

This street show truly brings the magic of theatre and circus straight to the people with an engaging, eye catching and spectacular variety performance.

‘Circo Rum Ba Ba's Dress Circle was really exceptional and the team are fantastic to work with. The sticky grass made it very difficult to manoeuvre the dress, but they were not put off and still did a bit of perambulation for us.’
