Seasonal Special Happenings

The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey circus

When: Thu., Oct. 20 2016

The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey circus dates back decades, but the circus still strives to regularly reinvent itself. This year’s incarnation will feature thrill skaters in addition to acrobats, animals and clowns. The “immersive atmosphere: created by lighting technology and video projection will combine with a “thrilling storyline.” Ringmaster Johnathan Lee Iverson and “Circus Star Seeker” Paulo battle evil forces such as the Intergalactic Circus Queen Tatiana. The technology in this year's incarnation, Out Of This World, provides a multisensory experience, and video screen production enhancements deepen the connection between the audience, the performances and the performers’ journey through space. Projection technology transports fans to far-off planets throughout the galaxy and transforms the arena into a swirling space-scape. The circus performs at 7 tonight at the Q, where shows are scheduled through Sunday. Tickets start at $20. (Niesel)
