This was a wonderful event. We were in the front row and felt like part of the action. My children, ages 4 and 7 both really loved it. Every act was great. Thanks for making it affordable. I would recommend it highly.

Wholesome family entertainment! Kids of all ages -- including adults -- will enjoy. The only negative was that our seats were off to the side and slightly obstructed. But a good time was had by all!

Description

About the Big Apple Circus:

It’s 30 years since the folks behind Big Apple created one of the most eagerly anticipated family traditions: The Big Apple Circus. They put the circus under a big top tent and gave their world-class artists the theatrical focus of one ring. The Big Apple Circus puts their audience right in the middle of the action—no one sits more than 50 feet from ringside, so even if you’re very small, you won’t miss a thing!

This all new 30th Anniversary show, Celebrate!, features comedy acrobats on the ground and thrilling acrobats in the air; high prancing horses and old dogs with incredible new tricks, soaring ballerinas, acts of renown and, of course, Grandma the Clown.

So, juggle that schedule and bring the whole group to see the Big Apple Circus. The show is new but one thing stays the same: The Big Apple Circus is your circus. Big Apple is back in town!

About the Ticket Supplier: Big Apple Circus

As a leading presenter of family entertainment and a not-for-profit performing arts institution, our nationwide performances and community programs have made our 34-year history far-reaching and full.

It all began in Kent, England, in 1974, when American entertainers and Big Apple Circus co-founders Paul Binder and Michael Christensen became juggling partners and took to the street corners of Europe. Their comedic juggling act was a hit, and they soon found themselves on the stage of the presitigous Nouveau Cirque de Paris. They returned home to America in 1976 with a vision: to entertain and improve the lives of millions. One year later, they found a site for the first tent-raising in Battery Park, New York, and went on to create the award-winning, not-for-profit Big Apple Circus.
