On Friday, April 10, teams of local military service members representing the Army, Navy, Air Force and the Coast Guard will compete in an “XTREME” fitness challenge with Ringling Bros. performers. Competitors will participate in four events, showcasing strength, power, agility and dance, as well as a crowd-inclusive spirit contest involving hundreds of service members from local bases. Circus performers will join the military in this exciting event. The winning team will be awarded a trophy, 200 circus tickets for their branch of service and a check for $500 to the charity of their choice.
“We are excited to recognize local military branches and give them a chance to show off their talents alongside our very talented and athletic performers, “said Crystal Drake, Regional Communications Director for Feld Entertainment. “These men and women give so much to the entire Hampton Roads community that we wanted to organize a fun event to celebrate their skills.”
In Circus XTREME artists redefine the word “extreme” in everything they do. Traditional elements of the circus are magnified and combined with never-before-seen spectacles, original fast-paced performances and incredibly hilarious moments. Show tickets can be purchased at Ticketmaster outlets, www.Ticketmaster.com, by calling 800-745-3000, or in person at each venue.
