Circus coming to town!

January 11, 2008

Albany--Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey rolls into the Albany Civic Center, with BOOM A RING, an action-packed circus spectacular where the energy bursts out of the ring, into the audience and bounces back to electrify the Ringling Bros.® performers. Circus-goers will enjoy an up-close and personal experience as they sit feet away from beautiful white tigers, majestic Asian elephants and thrilling acrobats from around the world!

Tickets went on sale Friday, January 4, and are available through http://www.Ringling.com, Ticketmaster or the Albany Civic Center box office.

Justin Case serves as the hilarious host of Ringling Bros. presents BOOM A RING where the action bounces from one high-energy act to the next. Featuring a daring crossbow demonstration by Martti Peltonen that takes archery to new extremes, Los Scolas in a gravity-defying performance on the whirling Wheel of Steel and in a high-wire extravaganza that tests the limits of human balance and breathtaking aerialists gracefully soaring over the audience's heads.

Of course, Ringling Bros. is not complete without its amazing animal family. Vicenta Pages, one of the world's youngest performing tiger trainers, demonstrates the bond she shares with her rare white-striped Bengal tigers in a dazzling display of acrobatic jumps, balancing and even a high-five. Patti Zerbini performs alongside majestic Asian elephants and the Vedyashkina family presents a delightful Daschund dog act.

BOOM A RING will bring circus patrons closer to the amazing performers that make the thrilling magic happen. During the FREE All Access Pre-show, which starts an hour before show time, the audience will have a chance to meet and get to know the performers personally. Circus fans will discover how the performers got into the circus world, how they train each day to prepare for the show, and even learn some circus skills of their own.  Then they'll get to see their new friends in action during the circus spectacular.

BOOM A RING is a one-of-a-kind experience that engages all the senses while providing Children Of All Ages with a day at The Greatest Show On Earth® they never imagined possible!
