"Ladies and gentleman, the show must go under! From the land of Oz (Australia, that is) come those fun-loving rockers the Newsboys in their hilariously offbeat film debut, written and directed by Steve Taylor. When the band inherits a minor league circus on the verge of bandruptcy, it's up to the lads to save a show where the clowns are psychotic, the hot dogs are of questionable origin, and the only animal act is a hamster fired from a cannon. Adding to the anarchy are guest stars Gary Chapman as a hapless translator and Mark Lowry as a clueless TV commercial director. Thrill to the sights and sounds of the Newsboys as they defy death and dignity to bring you the world's most unusual circus!
Featuring songs from the Newsboys hit album Take Me To Your Leader, along with two bonus video clips: "Take Me To Your Leader" (filmed in Australia) and the award-winning "Shine."
