Ponderous

Pachyderms

Everyone’s favorite – the biggest stars in show business. Lisa, Tracy, Beck and the amazing Asian elephants are sure to fascinate with their tremendous talents.

The Silk Road

Camels

Animal expert Mike Rice presents his “ships of the desert” and a zebra in a dazzling display of animal expertise. It is midnight at the oasis as the circus dancers join them in a “Putting on the Ritz” style dance.

Penelope and Her

Puppies of Penzance

Stand by for fun as the SS Dogpaddle sails into the circus ring with a crew of Ye Olde Salty Dogs. These pirate pooches are full of canine cleverness and surprises.

Raul Olivares

The whirlwind wizard of juggling. When Raul juggles, the air is full of flying objects…he even juggles five ping pong balls in his mouth.

Duo Delara

This talented team brings grace and daring to the air with their remarkable display of strength, style and sensational skill. They may be at ease on the trapeze, but audiences are on the edge of their seats as they deliver heart stopping entertainment aloft.

Ryan Holder

and his tigers

The world’s youngest tiger trainer, Ryan is confident and comfortable with his sleek striped jungle giants as he presents an awe inspiring display of their natural feline ability and agility.

The Enchanting

Miss Rebecca

Aerial excitement on the trapeze. Direct from her appearance in the hit movie “Water for Elephants”, she executes magnificent maneuvers in the dome of the big top.

Clown Alley

Steve Copeland and Ryan Combs are masters of mirth. Each year they bring carefully crafted chaos to the circus ring. It is a serious business for this dedicated duo, but guaranteed fun and laughter for everyone in the audience.

The Fusco Gauchos

Energetic entertainers from Argentina deliver acrobatics, juggling, dance and drums and merge them to create memorable magic. Their joyful exuberance is impossible to resist.

Fridman Torales

This astounding acrobat from Peru does the seemingly impossible. He balances on a board on top of a rolling cylinder at the top of a crow’s nest on a pirate ship.

Tony The Clown

Stand by for fun with the king of comedy. Tony works magic both in the ring and with the audience.
