Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey’s Barnum Bash debuted last night in West Palm Beach, FL at the Palm Beach County Convention Center. The show was a huge success and was reportedly sold out. Barnum Bash is RB&BB’s “Gold Unit” that is an intimate one-ring circus and plays mostly in rural areas.

The show is melodiously narrated by the beautiful “Ringlettes”; three world-class dancers that starred in RB&BB’s “Over the Top” and “FUNundrum”/”Barnum’s 200“. Also featured is 7th generation Circus Girl  Cathy Carden (née  Hanneford) with her majestic displays of domestic & exotic animals. Performing death-defying feats in the Globe of Steel, The Urias Family, with talented & fearless Circus Girls  Jodie Urias and Olga Surnina (one of the few female Globe Riders in the world). The husband & wife team, Duo Fusion, will make your jaw drop when Virginia Tuells bases for her husband in their beautiful hand-balancing act.

This year’s show is ALL about the ladies, which makes us very happy indeed. The producers, Nicole Feld & Alana Feld, have done it again! Bringing in world-class entertainment with Circus Divas that will impress even the more experienced of circus enthusiasts. ■
