Acrobats, performers flying through the air on trapeze, aerial dances, juggles, feats of strength unbeknownst to the average man, stunts that glue the audience’s eyes to the stage: this is just a taste of the exciting performances one can witness at the Big Apple Circus. If you’re intrigued, that’s good. It starts in our area this weekend! And we have a special promo code you can redeem for 15% of each ticket!
The Big Apple Circus will be at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks from May 18th – June 16th, 2019. Performances occur just about every Wednesday – Saturday at 7pm; Saturdays at 11am and 3pm; and Sundays at 12pm and 4pm.
This year’s show has so many awesome, jaw-dropping things to see. It’s hosted by a new ringmaster named Stephanie Monseu. There’s Virginia Tuells, a.k.a. the “strongest mom in the world” who dominates lifting duties in a breathtaking acrobatic act of dancing, strength, and flexibility with her husband Ihosvanya Perez. In the Spicy Circus, a team of performers bounce off the walls in a feisty trampoline act. The Flying Tunizianis attempt a quadruple somersault (something only successfully landed by ten people in the world) in a double-wide trapeze act. There’s also a balletic dual aerial straps act, a ladder balancing act, a gravity-defying horizontal juggler (for the first time in America), animal trainers, and comedic performances.
So North Penn Under Ten is obviously all about things we can do with our kids. But I need to confess something. I’m super-pumped to go! Maybe more excited than my kids 😊 . Bottom line: we have a potential gold-mine here. Something that’s truly fun for the adults AND kids!
No seat is a bad seat at the Big Apple Circus, which is a relief. With their unique stage style, nobody is more than 50 feet from the stage! If you plan to bring younger kids, that’s a really big deal. Plus, we all want to experience these exciting and death-defying acts. Being close is more exciting! Thus, every seat is essentially a great seat. If you’re concerned, Ticketmaster will present a “what you’ll see from your seats” view when you check out.
Big Apple Circus differentiates itself by going the extra mile to make sure everyone has a great time. If you want to feel extra special, you can add a VIP upgrade to your seats which gets you unlimited popcorn, cotton candy, beer, and wine. The “popcorn is now made with organic kernels, real butter, and sea salt, and all-natural Fresh Spun Cotton Candy is made from Fair Trade sugar, without dyes and preservatives.” And yes, you saw that correctly. There’s beer and wine for the grown-ups. Plus a private bathroom.
On May 31st at 11am, Big Apple Circus will hold a sensory-friendly performance for those with autism. This special performance will feature lowered light and sound levels, a descriptive social story showing the different areas and acts involved with the circus, and a “calming center” that can be accessed at any point during the show. All performances feature additional staffing and specialized entertainment to ensure an inclusive circus experience.
