THE circus has hit Gladstone, and it's set to perform a flipping great show tomorrow night.

Circus Oz will deliver its energetic and theatrical performance at the Gladstone Entertainment and Convention Centre.

Customers at the Lightbox Espresso Bar were treated to an impromptu performance on Thursday when some of the performers gathered with their props.

Touring show director Debra Batton said the performers were keen to put on a great show for Gladstone.

"I think the people love the unicycle act where two people ride the one unicycle - it's a very highly skilled act," she said.

"Olivia Porter's solo juggling performance is also popular, it's an innovative approach to juggling."

Each of the 12 team members have several roles, which could include solo performances, support acts, band members and acrobats.

"I think that's why the audiences find it charming," she said.

"They're more like ordinary people doing extraordinary things."

Tickets are still on sale and can be purchased on the Gladstone Entertainment Centre website.
