This summer, Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® Presents Built To Amaze! an all-new circus spectacular that will tour the Southland. The show comes to Staples Center Los Angeles July 10-July 16, Citizens Business Bank Arena, Ontario July 19-July 23 and the Honda Center in Anaheim July 26-Aug. 4.

The show is led by Ringmaster Andre McClain, accompanied by his horse Comanche, who leads his funny and mischievous circus supervisors to construct a fantastic design of heart pounding and wondrous performances. Built to Amaze! is an extraordinarily engineered circus experience custom built for family fun where Children Of All Ages®  find out what it takes to construct The Greatest Show On Earth® said McClain.

With more than 110 of the world’s best artists and athletes representing 17 countries along with 95 exotic and domestic animals assembled together, Built To Amaze! is highlighted by several unique acts such as nine-time international award-winning comedic animal presenting duo Alex and Irina Emelin of Russia. They introduce their uniquely designed brand of magic and humor with remarkably trained animals including poodles, ferrets, rabbits, snakes and more.

“Ringling Bros. Presents Built To Amaze! takes a child’s curiosity of how things all around us work by showcasing the very best performers from around the world, both human and animal,” said producer Nicole Feld.

In addition, the show features the electrifying high-wire acrobats, daredevil stunts on the steel vortex, the youngest female human cannonball, remarkable hand-balancing duos, and the audience pleasing Clown Alley. Clown Alley newcomer, Genevieve Flati, who auditioned at the Honda Center and was selected to join the nationwide tour, said, “I always knew I wanted to be a performer when I grew up, but most important, a performer that made people laugh.”

No Ringling Bros. circus experience would be complete without the four-legged star performers including the majestic Bengal tigers presented by the charismatic Taba and a fun-filled Asian elephant dance party.

Guests are encouraged to arrive early at the Honda Center for several exciting interactive elements before the show starts. Opening 90 minutes prior to each performance, all ticket holders are invited to tour the animal open house to get up-close with the performing animals. One hour before show time, families can step onto the arena floor to meet circus performers and animals at the interactive all access pre-show – provided free for all ticket holders.

Tickets start at only $12.
