Bring a Group to the Circus!

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!  

Audition to Become a Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® Clown!
                       
Fully Charged is lead by dynamo newcomer, Brian Crawford Scott, who energizes audiences throughout the show as he introduces amazing acts from around the world and masterfully guides circus-goers on a remarkable journey while singing original songs.     Fully Charged celebrates all kinds of “performance power”:  horse-power, man-power, athletic power and features amazing circus acts that can only be seen at The Greatest Show On Earth®, including:

• 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 Asian elephants in a symphony of dance and stand inside a cage, eye-to-eye with 12 ferocious tigers.
 
• Audiences will feel the earth shake when The Brothers of Brawn, who are as wide as they are tall, enter the arena. The strongman duo will lift large telephone poles and twirl them above their heads while acrobats balance atop, sustaining up to half a ton 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 amaze 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.

• Ever wonder how many clowns it takes to change a light bulb? Hilarious hoopla ensues with the comedic duo of Stas and Vas plus the clowns from the world-famous Ringling Bros.® Clown Alley, will send jolts of laughter shooting straight to the audiences’ funny bone with hysterical silly antics and clownish comedy.
