FROM THE FRONT DESK

Hey Everyone,

It's getting cold! Remember to bring- then take home- your jumpers and socks.

Please let us know if you won't be at class; we're making a show so rehearsals are difficult when you don't turn up!

We're looking for a pop-up gazebo! Do you have something we can borrow for three days during the annual show?
Please give us a call on 0266843038.

SUPER MIGHTY SCHOOLS TOUR

Congratulations on an awesome tour, Super Mighties! An eight-show week is huge even for the professionals.
The Super Mighties performed a combination of acrobatics, hoop diving and contortion with slapstick comedy and some very cool diabolo skills thrown into the mix.
Coaches Corie, DJ and Christy are super proud of this troupe of kids who support one-another and celebrate each other’s achievements.

Did you get your email last Friday? Spaghetti’s 2019 Annual Giving Campaign is live and launched! All donations over $2 are tax deductible. Can you help us spread the love as we aim to hit our $10,000 target? Yep, we’ve certainly set the bar high and that’s because we have high hopes of buying a twin cab truck to support Spaghetti’s popular touring and outreach work.

The ever-talented Hamish McCormack of Carnival Cinema will be cutting a special campaign video for us featuring some of the best of Spaghetti. We’ll let you know when it’s ready to share.

To the Spaghetti-mobile!

SO SHE DID- The Story of May Wirth

At a time when girls weren't encouraged to be bold and daring, Australian circus rider May Wirth lived by her own rules. Instead of just looking pretty on a fancy circus pony, she longed to do thrilling stunts that would amaze crowds with her courage and skill... So she did. Here is the story of a girl from humble beginnings who defied expectations and became the world's bareback riding queen.
Simi Genziuk is a Northern Rivers based author and circus performer. Simi has always been drawn to adventure, and it was during her many travels that she discovered the flying trapeze. She spent twenty years performing as a trapeze artist with traditional circuses around Australia and with contemporary circuses around the world. Simi hopes that by reading about amazing women, children will see the incredible things girls are capable of and be motivated to follow their dreams. So She Did is her first picture book.
Buy in bookshops or online
We also have a few copies for sale at the front desk at Spaghetti Circus.

STUDENT IN THE SPOTLIGHT- MAXINE

Not only are our students fabulous at circus but many are multi-talented singers and musicians.

On Saturday night we were treated to a special guest performance by 12 yr old Super Mighty Maxine McCoy who sang 4 jazz numbers for the Sharny Russell Band. Congratulations Maxine on a fine performance after an already long week of circus shows.

PLANET LAVA- Free Showing Saturday June 8

Corie has been working on a kids show! Planet Lava is a circus show for kids where everyone is an alien and the floor is made of lava.

The show is becoming more interactive with each iteration and is intended to help kids feel smart and important while having fun watching a very silly space explorer climb out of a rocket that is way too small for an 80kg astronaut.
Corie is looking for a generous audience as this informal showing will be filmed. Footage from the showing will go towards promoting the show and applying to perform at festivals and other circus venues.

Showing at 11:30am at Spaghetti Circus in the back shed.
runtime: approximately 30 minutes.
