"Ladies and gentlemen, children of all ages . . . welcome to the greatest show on Earth!"
Brian Crawford Scott makes that announcement in arenas across the country dozens of times a month. And it's always electrifying.
"The audience lives to hear those words," said Crawford Scott, the newest ringmaster of Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey Circus. "Every night they have the same magic. The audience lives to hear those words."
Crawford Scott will soon make that grand proclamation to Connecticut crowds when Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey presents "Fully Charged" at the XL Center in Hartford from Thursday to Sunday, May 5 to 8.

Crawford Scott is flanked by a colorful cast of high-flying, daredevil performers, including Brian Miser, whose stage name is "The Human Fuse"; the Danguir high-wire troupe, which performs death-defying acts without the use of safety cables; and Taba, whose full aggregate of equines, felines and pachyderms will be on display throughout the show.
It's Crawford Scott's task to introduce those performers, and to guide audiences through the high-energy big-top spectacular.
"I'm in and out the entire show," said Crawford Scott, who also lends his voice during several musical numbers. "I'm using voice the entire time. That's my skill here at the circus."


Crawford Scott, who is making his debut with Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey, never could have envisioned going off to join the circus.
