Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Return to Erwin Center 8/22-26


AUSTIN, Texas--Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey will bring a surge of circus entertainment to the Frank Erwin Center August 22-26 with their all new show, Fully ChargedSM! Megawatts of thrills will explode off the arena floor as Children Of All Ages are energized by breathtaking daredevilry, superhuman stunts and never before-seen performances.

Fully Charged celebrates all kinds of power, including horsepower, performance power, the power of beauty and grace, and sheer athletic power. The show is led by newcomer Brian Crawford Scott, who will introduce the amazing acts and take the audience on a fully charged journey while singing original songs.

One of the remarkable performances includes Tabayara, a dynamic animal trainer whose rare ability to communicate with animals allows him to ride rearing stallions and orchestrate majestic four-ton Asian elephants in a symphony of dance. When he stands inside a cage, eye-to-eye with 12 ferocious tigers, Tabayara sees family where others see danger.

The fearless Fernandez Brothers are sure to dial up the thrills as they perform daring feats of athleticism on the Twin Turbines of Steel, including extreme jumps and twists inside and outside of the spinning wheels. The Human Fuse, Brian Miser, will set the arena sky ablaze as he is ignited and propelled 110 feet through the air at 65 miles per hour from his self-made human crossbow.

Another amazing act includes the Tian Yi Cheng Troupe as they perform jumps, leaps and flips on state-of-the-art bounce stilts, combining ancient Chinese acrobatics and modern sports technology. The Danguir family will electrify circus-goers on the high-voltage high-wire as they execute difficult and dangerous stunts.

The excitement will continue throughout the show as clowns from the world-famous Ringling Bros. Clown Alley charge up the energy with their silly antics and clownish comedy.
