(Fresno, CA) – Prepare to blast off on an intergalactic adventure for space-age family fun as the ultimate circus experience launches into the future with Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey ® Presents Out Of This World™.

This all-new, immersive production will premiere for the first time on the West Coast, marking the national tour’s first stop with debut performances in Fresno playing Selland Arena from Thursday July 7 – Sunday July 10 th .
Through the lens of a magic telescope, Out Of This World transports the entire family on an unforgettable outer space journey as Ringmaster Johnathan Lee Iverson and “Circus Star Seeker” Paulo battle evil forces, the Intergalactic Circus Queen Tatiana and her bumbling henchman Davis, to return the most talented circus performers in the universe back to Earth.
Families will be amazed by the cosmic voyage story line exploring extraordinary new worlds and captivated by the twinkle in their child’s eyes as they visit far away planets of ice, fire, sand and water inhabited by gravity-defying acrobats, orbital aerialists, majestic animals and fearless daredevils that will ignite wonder with Children Of All Ages ® .

- Simet Family Astronauts – the only-one- of-its- kind aerial “space walk” with three astronauts balancing zero gravity maneuvers on a spinning wheel
- Heilongjiang Provincial Acrobatic Troupe – original presentation for the first time in America showcasing the mastery of skilled Chinese acrobatics (such as an 11-person human pyramid and hoop diving) – all performed on ice!
- Thrill Skaters – introducing a new genre of ice skating, combining lyrical figure skating with energetic freestyle skaters performing tricks and stunts on ice
- Sway Pole – clown entertainer Davis climbs a 47ft pole to complete a handstand 5 stories above the audience as he sways and tumbles around with a surprise ending
