Giveaway: Circus of China, Dec. 11 at Walton Arts Center

The National Circus and Acrobats of the People’s Republic of China


Update: This giveaway is now closed. Congrats to the winner, Jeffrey Walker.

The circus is coming to town next month, except this one’s not like anything you’ve ever seen before.

The National Circus and Acrobats of the People’s Republic of China will be performing at Walton Arts Center Dec. 11-12.

This troupe has performed in more that 50 countries and regions around the world since it got its start in 1958. Since then, the company has become internationally known for its innovation in the circus arts, including amazing acts such as the Great Teeterboard, Grand Flying Trapeze, and Group Contortion.

The circus incorporates elements of traditional acrobatics, Chinese circus, and Peking Opera, with colorful costumes and elaborate make-up and visual effects.

The troupe will be in town for two performances, both at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 11 and Saturday, Dec. 12.

Tickets range from $15-$35, but there’s a chance you can win a pair for free.

Good luck! Here’s how.
