Chimera rocks with show to mark 10th year

KINGMAN - The Circus Chimera is coming back to town April 6 through 8 celebrating its 10th anniversary.

The Circus Chimera, "the ultimate non-traditional big-top circus," decided this year that two things are here to stay - rock 'n' roll and the traveling circus. To celebrate their 10th anniversary, the circus decided to combine both into "an evening of excitement and enchantment you'll never forget," a news release said.

This year's show will feature renowned international performers from Argentina, Bulgaria, China, South America and the U.S., backed by good old rock 'n' roll from the '60s, '70s, '80s and '90s.

"The music is fabulous, the choreography daring and exciting. The dancing, with the amazing Chimerettes, incredible. Your family will leave the show singing, dancing and jumping with joy!" the release said.

The show will also feature Allen and Beem, clowns from the San Francisco School of the Circus Arts. The Acro-Stars Acrobats from China will perform ancient acts to the beat of rock 'n' roll.

"Lyubomir Karamiprex, famous in Europe for his X-treme motorsports, is truly the 'leader of the pack' with his motorcycle Globe of Death. All entertainers are masters of spectacle and illusion that will provide wholesome enjoyment for the whole family," the news release said.

Tickets range from $10 to $22. They are available at Pitzer Air Conditioning & Heating, 2010 Kingman Ave., and other locations in Kingman. The Kingman COYOTE group will be selling tickets this weekend at Wal-Mart Supercenter.

Children under 10 can receive free general admission with the paid admission of an adult. Tickets are also available online at www.circuschimera.com or by phone at (888) ONE-RING.
