Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey build a circus

ringling TabayaraRingling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey presents an all-new design of circus excitement with the new show “Built To Amaze!”

This extraordinarily engineered circus experience is custom-built for family fun where “Children Of All Ages” find out what it takes to construct “The Greatest Show On Earth.”

The visionary blueprints have been assembled with a contemporary toolbox of unparalleled imagination that will be unleashed at Sacramento’s Sleep Train Arena on Friday, Sept. 13 to Monday, Sept. 16, and the Stockton Arena on Friday, Sept. 20 to Sunday, Sept. 22.

Ringmaster Andre McClain takes the Ringling Bros. reins accompanied by his horse Comanche, to lead his funny and mischievous circus supervisors to construct a fantastic design of heart-pounding and wondrous performances including: nine-time international award-winning comedic animal presenting duo Alex and Irina Emelin of Russia, The Trampoline Tower Tumblers from the Ukraine who launch themselves from trampolines to scale, repel and pass through a three-story high translucent tower, and the popular King Charles Troupe hailing from New York with a spirited and comedic basketball competition featuring 10 whirling unicyclists.

In addition, the show features the electrifying high-wire acrobats, daredevil stunts on the Steel Vortex, the youngest female Human Cannonball, remarkable hand-balancing duos, the always hilarious Clown Alley and, of course, no Ringling Bros. circus experience would be complete without its four-legged star performers including the majestic Bengal tigers presented by the charismatic “Taba” and a fun-filled Asian elephant dance party.

Be sure to arrive early to join performers for several exciting interactive elements before the show starts.

Opening 90 minutes prior to each performance, all ticket holders are invited to tour the animal open house to get up-close with the amazing animals. One hour before show time, families can step onto the arena floor to meet circus performers and animals at the interactive all access pre-show with free admission to all ticket holders.

Tickets range from $20 to $95 for the Sleep Train Arena performances Sept.13 to 16 and $15 to $90 for the Stockton Arena performances Sept. 20 to 22.

They are available at the arena box offices, on Ticketmaster, Ringling.com or by calling 800 745-3000.
