Mount Isa residents will soon get a chance to enjoy a unique community event that will bring world-class live circus and cabaret performances, comedy and music together in one place when Wonderland Under the Stars is held in late October.

The team from the touring Wonderland Spiegeltent have put together a spectacular socially distanced program of live entertainment, including world-class circus, roving entertainers, and country rock star Casey Barnes and his band, all performed outdoors in their newest open-air venue under the Outback night skies.

Melissa Head, Director of Wonderland Spiegeltent said: “It’s been an extraordinary year for everyone, and part of the ethos of Wonderland Spiegeltent has always been to create a magical escape for audiences through live performance. Putting together this show has been met with overwhelming positivity, and we cannot wait to be back on stage, and I am so excited to bring Wonderland in the open air under the Outback stars in Mount Isa.” 

Brought to the community by the team from Wonderland Spiegeltent, in partnership with Mount Isa City Council, the three-day Wonderland Under the Stars spectacular will be held at Kruttschnitt Oval on Friday, October 23, from 5pm to 10pm; Saturday, October 24, from 5pm to 10pm; and Sunday, October 25, from 9.30am to 2pm, with some morning family events programmed and plenty of adult fun as well.

It will be an open-air, COVID Safe event, with a free entry family day event on the Sunday.

Tickets for the Friday and Saturday shows range from $20 to $49 per person, with visitor numbers limited at each event, in keeping with COVID Safe requirements.

The program of live entertainment will be headlined by country-rock star Casey Barnes, who has performed across the USA, was a previous contestant on Australian Idol, and who will be supported by local talent.

Circus performers will take to Wonderland’s very own specially made stage throughout the day, while roaming performers will have visitors of all ages entertained.

There will also be a licensed bar and food stalls available.
