All New Ringling Bros.® Production Takes Families Over The Top!

(Raleigh) -Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey comes to the RBC Center Thurs. February 5 – Sun. February 8.  Over The Top, a wacky and whimsical circus spectacular where audiences will experience maniacal mayhem as Ringmaster Chuck Wagner and clown eccentric Tom Dougherty compete for control of a magical top hat that brings to life their fantastical imaginations. From the silliness evoked by the clown to the stupendous spectacle conjured by the Ringmaster, Over the Top provides excitement for the whole family. Dogs fly, Asian elephants skip, hop, and groove and one courageous man stands eye to eye with a pack of powerful Bengal tigers, all at the 138th Edition of The Greatest Show On Earth®.

From the renowned Cossacks’ unbelievable equestrian stunts to the Flying Caceres high-altitude feats on an enormous double-decker trapeze, the 138th Edition of Ringling Bros. will take daredevil thrills to new extremes. Circus celebrities will help rev-up the motorcycle madness featuring one cycle on a high wire and an amazing seven speeding riders in a Globe of Steel. Audiences will flip their lids as this Ringling Bros. circus really goes Over the Top!

And one hour before show time, families can join Ringling Bros. athletic performers in getting CircusFit® and learning circus skills at the FREE All Access Pre-show.
