CircusWest proudly announces its newest theatrical circus production entitled 'NEVERLAND.'
Journey to the top of NeverPeak Mountain where you can see beyond belief! Audiences will be astounded by our newest production featuring dynamic circus aerials and acrobatics, set in a lush multimedia environment showcasing B.C.'s top young circus talent.
CircusWest takes you on a magical adventure to the land where mermaid, pirates, and pixies reside, found in the minds of children and those that refuse to grow up! It is not only the origin story of Peter Pan but also an ode to the mystical place that resides in all of us.
