NOW: Cirque Italia water circus holds final performance in Michiana

KOSCIUSKO County, Ind. -- The Cirque Italia traveling water circus is in Warsaw for one more day.

Every year Cirque Italia traveling water circus changes its theme to bring something new to its audience. This year's theme takes guests around the globe.

“It’s based as if you’re on an airplane, and we take you around the world to where the performers are from," Abbey Lawley, the on-site media representative said. "So, for example, if the performance is from Mexico it will be Mexican themed."

Besides the many costumes, music, and laser and light show, guests will experience many circus acts. The water circus brings a unique entertainment experience under one tent.

Inside the tent is a stage that holds 35,000 gallons of water.

The ultra-modern water curtain controls every drop of water that makes special effects like different patterns and features.

The show features performers from over 15 countries from France, Mexico, Brazil, and Romania.

“It’s like we are bringing a Las Vegas-style show, here to your very town, it’s incredible,” Lawley said.

Sunday, Sept. 20 is the last day the water circus will be in Warsaw. There are two showings at 1:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m.

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the circus crew is taking all the necessary precautions to make sure all employees and guests are safe when they enter the tent.

“We’re doing the best we can to make you feel as safe. So you can sit back, relax, forget what’s going on in the outside world, and just enjoy the incredible show that we’ve got on for you guys,” Lawley said.

Everyone over the age of three is required to wear a mask when entering the tent or one can be purchased at the show.

There are signs reminding guests to social distance and common areas are always being sanitized.

They're also limiting capacity to 30 percent.

“That allows us to be able to space all of the guests out. "Every other row will be closed off and then each side will have I think three or four seats. So you do have your own space. It’s not going to be overcrowded in there,” Lawley said.
