WILKES-BARRE — The greatest show on earth is coming to the Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza as Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey will present Circus Xtreme from April 28 to May 1. The show is being called the ultimate family entertainment experience, and it promises extreme thrills, exotic animals and extraordinary performers.

The circus will include high-wire acts, strongmen, BMX trick riders, trampoline daredevils, contortionists, a human cannonball, a bungee aerial skydiving display and an international assembly of more than 100 world-renowned artists.

Circus Xtreme’s four day tenure at the arena will provide a last opportunity for families in Northeastern Pennsylvania to see the Asian elephants perform before they are transported in May to their permanent home at the Ringling Bros. Center for Elephant Conservation in Florida.
