Written by Super User ..

Guyanese have been promised a treat, as from today the circus act ‘Circus of Dreams’ is slated to take over the Guyana National Stadium at Providence, East Bank Demerara. The show is a collaborative effort among LinkUp Media and GuyEnterprise and, the Guyana Telephone and Telegraph (GT&T) company, one of the major sponsors.
Organisers of the circus that features a ‘Christmas Circus’ and a ‘Santa’s Funland, as well as most of the performers, today met with Minister of Culture, Youth and Sport Dr. Frank Anthony in the ministry’s boardroom at Main Street. The show featuring 19 performers from across many countries inclusive of Dominica, Canada, Chile and the United States of America commences at 16:00hrs daily with Santa’s Funland. This segment features fun filled activities for the kids such as a fun land, a candy land, a gift land and also a Christmas village featuring with Mr. and Mr. Claus.
The Christmas Circus itself begins at 19:00hrs featuring juggling, trapeze and acrobats’ acts as well as the comedic performance of Bozo the clown. Minister Anthony welcomed the troupe to Guyana and promised that the show will be well received by Guyanese. “It is not often that we get a circus to come to Guyana,” he told the troupe, “but when they do come we get a large turn out and people look forward to a wonderful performance.”
Referring to the name of the show, which is also the name of the act, ‘Circus of Dreams,’ Minister Anthony said that he hopes that the show, through the different performances, does indeed fulfill the dreams and aspirations of the attendees.He urged the Guyanese public to come out to the show and said that this is “one way we can all get together and celebrate Christmas.”
He also encouraged the performers to take the opportunity whilst in Guyana to visit some of the local tourist sites and recommended Kaieteur Falls, which he described as the highlight of the country to the circus troupe. Director, GuyEnterprise Lisa Insanally said that the company was excited about the promotion and promises that if the Guyanese public is not already in the Christmas spirit then the show will get them there. Insanally also said that the Culture Ministry has been very helpful in the organisation of the show especially as it relates to the challenges of getting the performers to Guyana.
Chief Executive Officer, LinkUp Media, Kwame Mentore also thanked the Government of Guyana and the ministry for their assistance with regards to the show and promised patrons that it will be a tremendous success. Mentore said that LinkUp Media and GuyEnterprise collaboration was especially to bring a number of family events to the Guyanese public and promised that the enterprise will realize at least four to five major family events annually. The LinkUp Media and GuyEnterprise collaboration had brought Guyana the recently successfully ‘Dora’s Friendship Day’ promotion.
Circus of Dreams is a family-run troupe organized and managed by the husband and wife team, Silvestre Guerrero and Laura-Jane Mitchell who coach and mentor an ensemble of performers from across the world.
