The world's oldest form of family entertainment comes to you in Spencer. The James Cristy Cole Circus is returning for the third consecutive year with all new acts and a brand new show to the Clay County Regional Events Center on Saturday, March 24 and Sunday, March 25. Circus fans will have the opportunity to see three performances over the weekend, at 2 p.m. Saturday, March 24, and 1:30 and 6 p.m. Sunday, March 25. Doors open one hour prior to show times.
"We are truly excited to bring back this full three-ring family circus to Spencer," Scott Hallgren, general manager for VenuWorks at the Clay County Regional Events Center, said. "James Plunkett, the owner and producer of our Circus, is a fourth generation circus performer himself, and he knows how to produce a quality show. James has worked with several Shrine organizations across the country in producing circuses for them. In fact, the same circus and circus acts you'll be seeing in Spencer were in Omaha for the Tangier Shrine Circus. Please come out and join us for a fun-filled family day--the James Cristy Cole Circus will remind you of the good 'ole days when you went to the circus with your mom and dad or grandma and grandpa, but yet will still have all the fun and magic kids love today."
The James Cristy Cole Circus is a true old-fashion, three-ring nostalgic circus and a time-honored tradition that has been entertaining kids of all ages for over 20 years.
The James Cristy Cole Circus will feature all of the popular circus acts with an elephant, bears, horses, dogs, and more. New for the 2012 edition of the circus is The Castle-Hall Performing Bears -- multi-talented animals -- doing tricks an average human can't even perform, including handstands, walking on rolling globes, riding bicycles, and dancing. America's favorite circus animal and featured act -- the elephant -- is back again.
"Jeffery's Jalopy" comedy car routine features Jeffrey and his real, working 1927 Model-T.
Aerial artists will be performing their poetry in motion on the Roman Rings, aerial lyra's and featuring the aerial adagio on the cradle.
No circus would be complete without a ringmaster. The ringmaster for the James Cristy Cole Circus is Cristine Herriott-Plunkett. Also appearing with her is her registered Lipizzaner-Pinto horse "Cebero." As co-producer of the James Cristy Cole Circus, she designs and sews all of her costumes and puts the "bling in the ring!"
