Ringling Bros. circus coming to Kent Sept. 25-28
The circus is coming to Kent Sept. 25-28 at the ShoWare Center.
Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus will bring its all-new production Super Circus Heroes to the arena for seven shows.
Ringmaster David Shipman introduces an international cast who perform seemingly impossible displays of strength, speed and precision.
The cast includes award-winning, Italian clown Davis Vassallo, who makes his American debut as “Mr. Boredom” as he takes audiences on a journey to find a super power of his own while witnessing high-flying action and surprises along the way.
Other acts crowds will see include the power and concentration of the Shaolin Warriors of China to the whirling energy of the high-flying Cuban Comets and the graceful flexibility of the Russian super-vixen Lightning Rods.
The circus also will feature exotic animals such as dogs, ponies, camels and of course the world famous Ringling Bros. performing elephants.
Families can arrive one hour early before show time to experience the All Access Pre-Show “Super Circus Hero Training Camp” where families can step onto the arena floor to meet performers, try on costumes, get an up-close look at our exotic performing animals, learn super human circus skills such as juggling, wire walking, martial arts and much more.
Tickets range from $70 for ringside, $55 for floor seats, $35 for VIP, $25 and $20. Kids (ages 2-11) tickets are available for $10 each for select seating at 7 p.m. Friday, 11:30 a.m. and 7 p.m. Saturday and 5 p.m. Sunday.
