For six fun-filled weeks in June and July, the entire spectrum of the Ringling legacy is on full display when the curtain goes up on the annual Summer Circus Spectacular at the Historic Asolo Theater. Presented each year in collaboration with Circus Sarasota, the Summer Circus Spectacular provides delightful—and affordable—summer entertainment for “children of all ages.”
Serving as Master of Ceremonies for 2012 will be the Emmy-Award winning, forty-year circus veteran, Steve Smith. Steve’s good humor and quick wit will be matched by the Chaplinesque clowning of the irrepressible Renaldo.
Once again—soaring high overhead—will be the magnificent Queen of the Air, Dolly Jacobs. Back on earth and at center stage, will be the magically mesmerizing and award-winning contortionist, Princess Elayne. And rounding out the show, the astonishing Poema family will dazzle and delight the audience with their risky acts of Risley—also known as “foot juggling.”
At press time, our impresario Pedro Reis was securing the talents of yet another great circus act, but the identity of that exciting addition to the show will have to come in a later communication. In the meantime, plan now to join us for an hour of affordable family fun at the Ringling!
