Catch Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey at Newark ShopRite the weekend of its curtain call
by Brick City Live Staff/March 11, 2017
The Newark ShopRite has a reputation for being a highly social supermarket where reunions are just a quick left turn down the produce aisle.
On Saturday, March 11th, it will up the ante by temporarily turning into a performance venue for both the young and the more mature–and in particular those who love the circus.
Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey, which recently announced that the current tour of its “Greatest Show on Earth” will be the last in its 146-year history, will be making a personal curtain call to the community by bringing some of its performers into the supermarket itself. On Saturday, March 11th, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., the supermarket will host some of the circus’s clown performers. They will meet and greet with customers, and perform juggling and other routines in the store.
Tickets are still on sale for Ringling Bros.’ “Final Farewell: Out of this Word”, which has seven remaining shows from Friday, March 10th through Sunday the 12th. Tickets are still available; prices start at $33.
ShopRite Springfield Avenue Marketplace is located at 206 Springfield Avenue.
