ST. LOUIS (KSDK) - Clown auditions are coming to St. Louis this weekend.
Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus will hold their first-ever Clown College auditions in St. Louis Saturday, Sept. 7.
Aspiring clown artists will have an opportunity to show their skills for a chance at joining "The Greatest Show on Earth." An interactive clowning workshop will be held during auditions to help teach some basic skills. After the workshop, clown wannabes will be able to give a three to five minute freestyle routine involving any special skills like acrobatics, juggling, or even unicycle riding.
Auditions will be held at Circus Harmony at City Museum, 701 N. 15th Street from 3:30 p.m. until 6:30 p.m. Anyone wishing to join the circus must be at least 18-years-old, but younger clowns are welcome to attend to watch.
You must register in advance through the Ringling Bros. website or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
