Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® Presents Built To Amaze!, an extraordinarily engineered circus experience custom-built for family fun where Children Of All Ages® find out what it takes to construct The Greatest Show On Earth®. The visionary blueprints have been assembled with a contemporary toolbox of unparalleled imagination that will be unleashed from shipping crates right before the audience’s eyes for the all-new circus spectacular Built To Amaze! at the XFINITY Arena at Everett October 1 – 4.
Ringmaster Andre McClain takes the Ringling Bros.® reins accompanied by his horse Comanche, as the skilled circus supervisor (alongside award-winning comedic clown Davis Vassallo) to construct a fantastic design of high-energy and wondrous performances sure to amaze and thrill audiences. Featuring more than 40 of the world’s best artists and athletes representing 13 countries along with numerous exotic and domestic animals assembled together, Built To Amaze! is highlighted by several unique acts this year including:
- The popular King Charles Troupe hailing from New York City brings one-wheeled b-ball excitement to the ring with a spirited and comedic basketball competition featuring ten whirling unicyclists.
- Crossbow Casanova presents an insanely accurate crossbow act shooting arrows through a thin piece of paper and the stem of a flower held in the mouth of his lovely assistant Ashley Vargas plus ending the act shooting off eight crossbows at once shooting the last arrow at an apple on top of his head.
- Supersonic Skyscrapers aerial casting act will stun audiences as they toss and flip through the air only by the catch and release of each other’s hands while standing on a stilt-like platform.
- Single Trapeze act featuring a solo female aerialist named Electra performing remarkable high-flying release moves.
Be sure to come out one hour early to each performance to meet the performers and animals on the show floor, try on costumes, learn circus skills and more at the interactive All Access Pre-Show, FREE admission to all ticket holders.
