RINGLING RED IN TULSA


The Greatest Show on Earth Lands in Tulsa for the Weekend
06-08-2010
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
TULSA, Okla. – Through the mystery of magic and the mastery of skill, audiences will be spellbound as Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Presents ZING ZANG ZOOM, a thrill-filled, mind-blowing circus spectacular where family fun is no illusion offering hours of exciting family entertainment for about the price of a movie ticket. Magical Zingmaster Alex and his assistant, Levitytia, lead audience members through an extraordinary world of fantasy that celebrates the uplifting spirit of the circus and also wards off the cynical Mr. Gravity and his team of Heavies who try to bring everyone down all at ZING ZANG ZOOM, the 139th Edition of The Greatest Show On Earth which runs Thursday, June 10 thru Sunday, June 13 at the BOK Center in Tulsa.
Captivating illusions await Children Of All Ages, as apprentice illusionists mysteriously levitate their parents, a four-ton elephant disappears before the audience’s eyes and the mischievous Mr. Gravity transforms into a ferocious tiger. Throughout ZING ZANG ZOOM, circus-goers’ jaws will drop when they see stunning thrill acts that demonstrate unbelievable fearlessness and bravery in performances that defy gravity and logic. Graceful aerialists perform high above the arena floor, fearless human cannonballs blast through the air, and dexterous high-wire walkers skip across a thumb-thin wire. Chinese acrobats achieve the impossible as they perform the trapeze on swinging balance beams. Two performance troupes join forces to create a never-before-seen Quadruple Russian Fire-Swing, and daredevils on dueling Wheels of Steel tempt fate.
Most magical of all is the incomparable array of exotic animals, which includes a herd of Asian elephants, Bengal tigers, and Arabian and Friesian horses that join forces with human performers to create an experience that reminds everyone that the magic of The Greatest Show On Earth® lives on!
And one hour before show time, families can meet the performers, get autographs, and see an amazing elephant that paints at the Ringling Bros. Clown College at the All Access Pre-show – FREE with a purchased ticket!
