BRIDGEWATER, NJ - The Big Apple Circus trundled into the parking lot at TD Bank Ballpark last week and is unloading dozens of trucks and beginning to set up the Big Top, ticket office, support trailers and living accomodations in advance of its month-long run.
The Big Apple Circus has returned for the company’s 38 season with the New Jersey Premiere of The Grand Tour.
The Grand Tour transports audiences to the roaring 1920s, the advent of the modern travel era, when the most adventuresome began touring the world in ships, planes, trains, and automobiles.
With every seat less than 50 feet from the stage, audiences will be awed by the world-class entertainers as they perform breathtaking acts from the four corners of the globe.
Clowns, jugglers, acrobats, and aerialists from Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, and North and South America appear with ponies, puppies and more; the troupe sets off on a whirlwind adventure, accompanied by the live, seven-piece Big Apple Circus Band at each performance.
Tickets start at $25, and the show runs from Feb. 12 through March 13 under the Big Top at TD Bank Ballpark, at 1 Patriots Park (GPS: 860 East Main Street) Bridgewater. To purchase tickets or for more information, visit www.bigapplecircus.org.
