The U.S. Cellular Arena is the home for a three-ring circus spectacular with several performances of the Tripoli Shrine Circus this weekend. Performers from around the world including acrobats, clowns, dancers, animal acts, and daredevils pack in non-stop entertainment mesmerizing those of all ages.

Making sure this show runs smooth is Ringmistress Audrey Michelle. Ms. Michelle is one of only a few women in the world taking on the role of ringmaster. She was born into the circus world, first performing with her parents in their handbalancing act at the age of six. Later roles in the circus for her included training animals, performing with elephants and being an aerialist before becoming the emcee of one of the largest traveling circus companies in the world.

Ms. Audrey Michelle, one of only a few Ringmistresses in the world, helps keep the show run smooth.
Numerous stage hands work non-stop in changing over each ring to its next performance setup. Ropes and wires fill the center of the arena and the crew must perform a delicate dance of balance between the chaos of three stages. They very successfully changeover each set with the greatest of ease.

Bo the Elephant clearly stole the show and the hearts of the audience. Some even gave a standing ovation for the gracefulness and talent of this nearly six ton animal.
