Ringling Bros. Makes World Debut in Tampa Next Week

Wednesday, January 6 – 10, 2010 – St. Pete Times Forum

TAMPA BAY - Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® will roar into Tampa next week for the 140th Edition of The Greatest Show On Earth®, playing at the St. Pete Times Forum January 6-10, 2010.  The new show, Barnum’s FUNundrumSM, comes to life in a way that can only be inspired by the greatest showman who ever lived, P.T. Barnum.
Thrill-seekers may pay for the entire seat, but will only need its edge as a rip-roaring motorcycle troupe braves fear and physics in the 16-foot Spherical Miracle.  Height-seeking high-wire artists perform 40 feet in the air, all while at a 45 degree angle.  Masters of Musculature use their bodies in the ultimate test to see how far the human body can be pushed in a mind-blowing world of distortion and contortion.  Just as the Ringling Bros. train keeps traveling from city to city, Barnum’s FUNundrumSM keeps the energy going as each extraordinary act blends thrills and contemporary spectacle to over 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.
