 The 141st edition of the Greatest Show on Earth isn't the same show your parents or grandparents saw back in the day. Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus presents "Fully Charged," at The Palace of Auburn Hills on Wednesday, is a show like no other.

The "Fully Charged" theme is a celebration of "performance power," and a nod to the highly electronic and technological world we live in today.

"The theme is really about people," says Chantal Stringer, the circus' production manager. "These days they have their cellphones, laptops. They're always plugged into something, if you will.

"Coming to the circus is like you're unplugging from your electronics, and you're coming to a high-impact, high-energy show that's gonna make you focus on the show. The clowns plug in for you, the performers plug in for you. And you come out smiling."

There are the traditional circus acts such as the high wire, tigers, elephants, horses and, of course, there's Barnum & Bailey's Clown Alley that brings the power of laughter.
