JULY 8, 2004 - Posted at 3:19 p.m. CDT

 

JONESBORO, AR - The world famous Ringling Brothers Barnum & Bailey circus will make its first Jonesboro appearance in nearly 50 years next month.

The company's Ringling Brothers "Hometown Edition," a third touring unit, will appear at the Arkansas State University Convocation Center for a total of six performances August 27-29.  The new Hometown Edition encompasses the sights and sounds of this tradition along with "unprecedented opportunities" for observers and their families to be a part of the show.

It all begins one hour before the show when every ticket doubles as an all-access pass to step into the ring and meet the performers.  Ticket holders can also pose for pictures with circus performers, and wander through the circus' backstage animal habitat.

The performances schedule is as follows...

Friday, August 27 - 7 p.m.

Saturday, August 28 - 11 a.m., 3 p.m., 7 p.m.

Sunday, August 29 - 1 p.m. and 5 p.m.

The August 27 show will be the first Ringling Brothers Barnum & Bailey performance in Jonesboro since 1955.

Ticket prices range from $13 to $23.  All seats are reserved and available at www.Ringling.com, or at the Convocation Center box office at 870-972-2781.
