Ringling Bros. 'Fully Charged' Is Coming To SoCal!

There’s nothing more exciting than going to the circus! Getting to see all the different acts, the goof ball clowns and the animals…what fun. It’s been years since I’ve been to see the Ringling Bros. circus but I have only the fondest of childhood memories (besides having to cover my face when the clowns came out...darn you clown phobia) from going with my parents.

I’m definitely not going to miss it when they come to town this year because Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey is bringing us an all-new show…

Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® invites families to disconnect from the digital world and plug into the most electrifying circus experience ever at the all-new show Fully Charged, where megawatts of thrills explode off the arena floor with breathtaking dare-devilry, superhuman stunts and never-before-seen performances that will energize Children Of All Ages!

Fully Charged celebrates all kind of “performance power”: horse-power, man-power, athletic-power and features amazing circus acts that can only been seen at The Greatest Show On Earth!

The show will include such acts as:

Tabayara, a dynamic animal trainer whose rare ability to communicate with animals allows him to ride rearing stallions at a fully-charged gallop, orchestrate majestic four-ton elephants in a symphony of dance and stand inside a cage, eye-to-eye with 12 ferocious tigers.

You’ll definitely feel the earth shake when The Brothers of Brawn, who are as wide as they are tall, enter the arena. The strongmen duo will lift large telephone poles & twirl them above their heads while acrobats balance atop, sustaining up to half a ton of total weight.

The fearless Fernandez Brothers dial up the thrills on the Twin Turbines of Steel, including extreme jumps and twists inside the moving wheels! Audiences will crackle with excitement as they watch Guillermo perform a 360-degree, flying-forward somersault, three stories in the air.

The Danguir Troupe thrills on the high-wire as they execute dangerous stunts and for the first time ever a shoulder to shoulder leap, three stories high!

Sparks will fly as The Human Fuse Brian Miser sets the arena sky ablaze as he rockets through the air at 65 miles per hour from his self-made human crossbow.

Combining ancient Chinese acrobatics and modern sports technology, the Tian Yi Cheng Troupe from Henan, China amazes audiences as they perform jumps, leaps,and flips on state-of-the-art bounce stilts. Including a luminescent display of incredible skill for a crowd-pleasing game of slam-dunk basketball.
