Entertaining Branson audiences since 1998 the Acrobats of China showcase one of the best and most elite Chinese Acrobats troupes in Branson in an all-new show every year. This celebrated Acrobatic Troupe is from the province of Jinan and is known for their colorful costuming and cutting-edge creation of new acts. For over 19 years the Incredible! Acrobats of China featuring New Shanghai Circus have brought awesome acrobats to Branson. Visitors use words like "wow," "amazing," and more to describe the New Shanghai Circus at Yakov's Theatre.

Excellent show. Theater is a little dated, but no complaints about show. Got half-priced tickets at one of the discounters, probably will be inundated in time-share calls. Excellent show.

Money and time well spent. Each of the acts performed were worth watching. Most of the acts kept us at the edge of our seats. I would certainly suggest this show to anyone visiting Branson.

Went and saw the show on Aug 1st. The show was jaw dropping. Its definitely worth seeing if you have not seen it before. The performers were very talented, even the kids that perform.

This show could have been even better. It was entertaining. Most of the feats were amazing. It just lacked the full entertainment package. We got some discount tickets and felt it was worth the money. There were some amazing performers.

It was our family's second year in a row watching this show. We enjoyed it the first time and again this second time. There is lots of variety. We saw acts that weren't there last year. We loved it.

Very impressive performance. However, the theatre is outdated and awful. They need to relocate to get more business.

It isn't required to purchase the tickets in advance but it does allow for better seating. If you call 417-336-8888 that is the box office number. We will be looking forward to seeing you.

We went June 7. The theatre was hardly full. However I'm a planner and would get my tickets just to be sure. At the end of June you'll be more in season.
