A SPECIALISED bike and a rare soprano saxophone belonging to members of Circus Oz were stolen from the West Gippsland Arts Centre in Warragul on Friday night.
A spokesperson for the WGAC said the bike, pictured above, was not replaceable and was key to one performer’s act.
“Without it, the act just doesn’t happen,” the spokesperson said.
“It’s not useful to anyone other than the highly trained performer who needs it so he can do what he does so well.”
In posts on social media Circus Oz tour manager Mel Fyfe said the bike could be identified by four big silver foot pegs – two on each wheel.
Ms Fyfe said the curved soprano saxophone saxophone was “very rare and valuable” and of great sentimental value to its owner.
Police are investigating and Circus Oz has requested that anyone with information about the theft contact 0404 149 407.
