SPECIAL TO GUIDE TO LAS VEGAS SUMMER FUN
Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Presents Built to Amaze! is an extraordinarily engineered circus experience where children of all ages find out what it takes to build the Greatest Show on Earth. The foundation is set and the rising anticipation of high-energy, high-jinx and hilarity is ready to be transported by colorful circus machinery and unleashed from shipping crates right before the audience’s eyes June 13-16 at the Thomas & Mack Center.
Built to Amaze! opens with the all-access preshow where everyone is invited to join the fun and meet the international cast of performers as they prepare for the show. The Ringling Bros. Ringling Girls and Barnum B-Boys encourage kids to participate in a tug-of-war and kick off what will soon become an insane battle of girl power versus boy power .
Audiences also can pick up some hip dance moves during the dance party, try on custom-designed costumes, learn circus skills such as juggling from the famous Ringling Bros. Clown Alley and even have the opportunity to witness and win a one-of-a-kind masterpiece created by Asia, Ringling Bros. painting pachyderm.
Ringmaster Andre McClain takes the Ringling Bros. reins and, accompanied by his horse, Comanche, leads his super circus supervisors to construct the show. A fantastic design with more than 110 of the world’s best performers representing 17 countries along with 95 exotic and domestic animals will be assembled, creating never-before-seen performances.
Ringling Bros. is thrilled to introduce nine-time international award-winning comedic animal presenting duo Alex and Irina Emelin of Russia. Also new is the Tower Tumblers, a troupe of competitive aerial athletes from the Ukraine who launch themselves from trampolines to scale, repel and pass through a three-story-high translucent tower. Ringling Bros. brings a spirited and fiery competition of basketball with the next generation of whirling unicyclists, the legendary King Charles Troupe hailing from New York City.
