BALLISTA is a fast paced, exhilarating ride through the 20th century, narrated through the lives of 2 circus artistes, Pablo & Popsi.


Pablo, the consummate showman, is the Expert Trickster, juggling, balancing and manipulating his way through the ages, and Popsi, circus stage sensation, is the Queen of The Hoops, delivering glamorous and polished performances, and leaving suitors swooning in her wake.


World class skills, slapstick and spoken comedy, clever audience interplay and just a few special effects, this show knocks the socks off any age on any stage! Circus has come a long way in the last 100 years.


From the dusty floorboards of the vaudevillian theatres of old, to the technological wonders of the modern day, the circus has always inspired, excited and enthralled. The combination of physical prowess, unrestrained imagination, and theatrical magic have always left audiences gasping for more.

BALLISTA celebrates this legacy and journeys through time with one constant thread throughout, sensational circus spectacles!


So roll up, roll up, the circus is coming to town!!!

This show has been adopted by the wonderful people from Marketing Essentials Ltd NZ. Thank You!!!
