Acrobats of China at Yakov's Theatre are one of the top things to do for fun in Branson! 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. During the show you'll see acts like Hat Jugglers, Human Hoops, Flag Man on a Pole, Aerial Ballet, Chair Stack, Human Strength & Beauty, Bicycle, and many more. This is a Branson Show that is Fun for Everyone! Also see the show before the show with a traditional Chinese Tea Ceremony conducted in the lobby before every show.

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 However, the theatre is outdated and awful.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.

This show was wonderful- kept the attention of my 13 year old son and myself. The performers were simply amazing and the theater was clean, easy to access and easy parking. I would highly recommend for families!

This could be a top Las Vegas act in Branson Missouri. Every act was something that only few people can do in the world. Every acrobat was amazing. There wasn't a single person that didn't have an important part. The amount of skill I watched...More

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.
