Three Rings and All
Local children of all ages have something to look forward to this month. That's right, y'all, the circus is coming to town. Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey's Fully Charged will take over the American Airlines Arena, and it's coming loaded with trained animals, kooky clowns, and death-defying daredevils.
In line with circus tradition, Tabayara the animal trainer will race stallions, dance with elephants, and tame tigers, but the Fernandez Brothers will put a new spin on an old act, turning in the trapeze for the Twin Turbines of Steel. The Human Fuse will launch himself from a human crossbow, and an hour before the show, all ticket holders can take part in preshow activities with the chance to meet the performers and animals up close.
Jan. 6-8, 11 a.m., 2:30, 5 & 7 p.m.; Jan. 12-16, 11 a.m., 2:30, 5 & 7 p.m., 2012
