Animal tricksters, atmosphere-scraping aerialists, and cavorting clowns rustle their three-ringed spectacle into American Bank Center Arena for the Al Amin Shrine Circus. With Ringmaster and Spectacular section seats nestled right up to the ring, guests will not lose track of Ringmistress Michelle Audrey as she steers eyes and ears toward lions leaping through flaming rings or toward trapeze artists soaring overhead. The elephant Bo traipses before the stands to unfurl both his stretched snout and brawny repertoire of more than 60 tricks. Donning ruby-red noses and Sasquatch’s hand-me-down shoes, clowns tease the audience with high hilarity, and the Georgettes delight with synchronized dance and high-flying rope routines.
An hour before each show, the circus preparty boards brave kiddie pilots onto an elephant or pony transport. Those early onlookers can also meet the circus stars and have their faces painted with a pretty butterfly or an impromptu Pollock.
