A UniverSoul Big Top Party

  • Written by Warren Roseborough

Circus-1-600The circus with a purpose – UniverSoul Circus – was back in Memphis on Tuesday, with some new acts and the same agenda.

The only African-American Circus in the world, UniverSoul Circus always makes a point to tell the children to tell their parents that they love them and that they thank them for bringing them to the circus.

Tuesday's opening-night performance started with a local flavor, featuring The Millennium Madness Fancy Trick Drill Team that many have seen do their thing at the Southern Heritage Classic, area high schools and other Memphis venues.

Circus-2-600Then Zeke, who has been with UniverSoul Circus from its beginning, came out with a crew guys of similar stature and entertained via a skit.

The evening rolled on from there, including performances by the Caribbean Dancers, Jean Claude and his aerial Ballet, elephant rides, the Soul Train Line and numerous other crowd-pleasers.

The show goes on at the Hickory Ridge Mall through Sept. 2. Tickets are available through all Ticketmaster outlets and online at Ticketmaster.com
