WILMINGTON, MA — Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls, the Shriners Circus is back with an all-new show. Presented by the Aleppo Shriners at the Shriners Auditorium in Wilmington, the circus will be held for the first time since 2019 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The greatest show to hit the Shriners Auditorium in 2022 will be a fun-filled extravaganza for young and old,” said Roger Metcalfe, Shriners Circus Chairman. “This is an all-new circus featuring some of the best performers and entertainers in the country.”
The circus will offer twelve performances during school vacation week from Wednesday, April 20, 2022 through Sunday, April 24, 2022.
Highlights of the 2022 Shriners Circus include aerialists, dancers, acrobats, performers flying through the air, death-defying stuntmen riding four motorcycles at the same time in the Globe of Death, and a man being shot out of a cannon. Of course, the famous Aleppo Clowns will spread laughter and silliness throughout the arena. No exotic animals will be performing at the circus.
