Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® returns to the Palace of Auburn Hills Nov. 18 – 22 with its newest show, Over The Top.

Over The Top is a wacky and whimsical circus spectacular where audiences will experience maniacal mayhem as Ringmaster Chuck Wagner and clown eccentric Tom Dougherty compete for control of a magical top hat that brings to life their imaginations.

From the silliness evoked by the clown to the stupendous spectacle conjured by the Ringmaster, Over The Top provides excitement for the whole family. Dogs fly, Asian elephants skip, hop and groove and one courageous man stands eye to eye with a pack of powerful Bengal tigers, all at the 138th Edition of The Greatest Show On Earth®.

Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® presents Over The Top will take daredevil thrills to new extremes with the renowned Cossacks’ mind-boggling equestrian stunts and the Flying Caceres’ high-altitude feats on an enormous double-decker trapeze.

One hour before show time, families can join Ringling Bros. athletic performers in getting CircusFit® and learning circus skills at the FREE All Access Pre-show.
