141st Edition of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus Roars into Tampa January 5-9

January 5 – 9, 2011 at the St. Pete Times Forum
TAMPA BAY - Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® will roar into Tampa for the 141st Edition of The Greatest Show On Earth®, playing at the St. Pete Times Forum January 5-9, 2011. The new, electrifying show, Fully ChargedSM, comes to life in a way that can only be inspired by the greatest showman who ever lived, P.T. Barnum.
Ringling Bros.® powers up audiences with acts from all over the globe featuring breathtaking dare-devilry, superhuman stunts and never-seen-before performances that spark the imaginations of Children of All Ages! Clowns from the world-famous clown alley charge the audiences’ funny bones, while megawatts of thrills explode out of the ring including The Human Fuse who rockets across the circus skies igniting the power of the people.  Of course, amazing animals will also spark the audience’s awe and wonder. Just as the Ringling Bros. train keeps traveling from city to city, Fully ChargedSM keeps the energy going as each extraordinary act blends thrills and contemporary spectacle to deliver a heart-racing experience that, until now, was beyond imagination.
Beginning 90 minutes before show time, families can get up close with some of their favorite animal performers in the free Animal Open House.  And then, starting one hour before the show, guests can join on the arena floor for the All Access Pre-show, free to all ticket holders.
