The 7 Fingers Markham Fair Grounds July 1 – August 1
A physically distanced Cirque du Soleil-inspired show will run from July 1st to August 1st.
The 7 Fingers custom-produced a show for the Markham Fair Grounds called A Summer Tale. They have won Tony Awards, they’ve done Olympics opening ceremonies, and they’ve performed at the Academy Awards. A Summer Tale takes audiences into a fantasy world where the lives of 10 magical, acrobatic characters converge at a ball celebrating the summer solstice. As they interact with one another in drama, delight, and acrobatic feats, an enchanting story unfolds. A sensation of sight and sound, A Summer Tale promises to dazzle audiences with heart-pounding cirque performances, stunning costume design, breathtaking staging, and raucous musical beats.
The 104-acre site features a catwalk that is 240 feet long, and an expansive stage, giving guests panoramic sightlines of the performance. They have created a 360- degree stage experience with dramatic lighting, fireworks, and colourful smoke grenades that make the experience truly magical.
Showtimes are 6:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m., Thursdays to Sundays, and each performance is 60 minutes long.
Though the province of Ontario will only be entering Stage 2 of reopening the day before the show launches, attendees can rest assured that everything about this event has been planned with safety in mind. Each party that arrives will watch the show from their own private platform for their social bubble. Each platform can accommodate up to eight guests (with a minimum requirement of four ticket purchases per platform), and tickets range in price from $65 per person to $85, depending on which section of the fairgrounds you are seated in.
Together Apart, Summer Cirque is produced by The Concierge Team. They have partnered with Restaurants Canada and will be donating a portion of the proceeds to their mental health and wellness initiative.
In addition, to show appreciation for all of the hardworking people who have kept our province going through the pandemic, Together Apart, Summer Cirque is inviting front line workers to attend for free
