This may be the coolest thing ever, dare I say even better than BACON! If our friends at the circus need a dad to balance a remote on his belly while eating an Italian Beef, then I have found a new career!
For those of you with “real” talents, this is your chance to shine!
Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey is holding open Auditions Nov. 20 at United Center!
You! Yes, you!!! You could be a part of the Greatest Show On Earth!
The Greatest Show On Earth® is on the lookout for extreme talent, and has its sights set on Chicago. In town throughout the month of November with its newest spectacular, Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Presents Circus XTREME, Ringling Bros. will hold open auditions, 2:30 to 4:30 p.m., Friday, Nov. 20, at Chicago’s United Center. Auditioners are encouraged to take it to the max with the biggest of their best, from freestyle running/parkour and BMX trick-riding, to extreme gymnastics, stunt skateboarding, contortion, breakdancing, fire-breathing, even bowling ball juggling. More traditional circus skills are also welcome.
Auditioners…yes that’s a word! Auditioners should come prepared with two to three minutes of family-friendly material and bring their own props. Advance registration and submission of music tracks is requested. For additional information or to reserve an audition slot, call 877-777-0818. Must be 18 years of age or older, and available to travel.
If your parkour isn’t quite up to snuff but you still want to feel the excitement of the Greatest Show on Earth, then plenty of tickets are still available when they roll into town on November 2nd.
