Such a lot of fun. Relaxing and funny, and a nice change from our otherwise more gloomy and quiet experiences in cambodia (killingfields, temples etc. Loved those too but nice with some happier and more lively variation!). They perform saturdays and mondays in the evening. *spoiler alert* Dance, music, acrobatics, story, comedy and fire. Loved it.

This was one of the highlights of my trip and one of the most entertaining shows I've ever seen. The music was great, drums and Cambodian instruments I've never heard before. The first act was a sort of play, with a Cambodian princess and a cripple and a group of toughs from the town. I have no idea what they... More

Great show and terrific performers. Great value and very energetic performance. Artists were entertaining and if at first they missed a trick they kept going until they made it work. Please donate when show finishes they are worth a helping hand.

Went to to see this show tonight, it's a must see. These talented youth will keep you entertained for the full 60 minutes. Visited the gallery before the show, also worth a visit.

Fun, energetic circus showcase the students of Phare Ponleu. Arrive early to watch them practice and having fun. The students are also selling some amazing artwork to support the school.
