Las Vegas’ newest stage production hit the stage last night when “Circus 1903” held its opening night performance at Paris Las Vegas. Talented performers and breathtaking puppeteering came together in this new resident production that transported the filled room back to the golden age of the circus with its thrilling acts.

Aerial acrobatics, high-wire walking, body contortion and more sideshow acts took the stage along with the showstopper, the world’s largest performing elephants, Queenie and Peanut, who are brought to life through puppeteering. Peanut quickly became a crowd favorite as she learned tricks from her mother.

Ringmaster Willy Whipsnade kept the laughter rolling throughout the one-act production, throwing popcorn at the crowd, bringing children on stage for magic acts and keeping the show moving forward.

The production’s director Neil Dorward and creative producer Simon Painter were on hand for opening night, along with The Gazillionaire and Melody Sweets from “Absinthe,” cast members from “Magic Mike Live,” magician Mac King, cast members from Chippendales, “Divas” star Frank Marino, comedy hypnotist Anthony Cools, mentalist Frederic Da Silva and magician Murray SawChuck.

After the show, the cast and creative team joined invited guests for an exclusive post-show celebration at Napolean’s Dueling Piano Lounge inside the center-Strip property. Late into the night, guests enjoyed a hosted bar and a selection of sweet treats inspired by the show – including caramel corn balls, miniature cotton candy cones, a liquid nitrogen popcorn station and more – while sharing laughs and their enjoyment for the performance.
