Have you experienced the magic the circus can provide? I remember the first (and only) circus I went to when I was a child. It was in the parking lot at our local mall. My parents surprised me as we pulled into the mall parking lot and I saw the huge tent and wondered at what would be in store inside.

Before we entered the tent, I had the chance to ride on the elephant. I had ridden on horses in the past or ponies at the local fair, but getting on top of such a huge creature was an exciting adventure and something I haven’t forgotten.

The show was everything you expect from a circus, or when you don’t really know what to expect, an entertaining show full of tricks you never knew existed.

If I were to join the circus, I would want to do something that could wow the audience, the same way the performers were able to create a magical experience for me. I would either want to do illusions that could captivate the audience or work with the animals to showcase their amazing abilities.

How about you? If you were to join the circus, what would you do?

From Disney and visionary director Tim Burton, “Dumbo” expands on the beloved classic story where differences are celebrated, family is cherished and dreams take flight. Circus owner Max Medici (Danny DeVito) enlists former star Holt Farrier (Colin Farrell) and his children Milly (Nico Parker) and Joe (Finley Hobbins) to care for a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him a laughingstock in an already struggling circus. But when they discover that Dumbo can fly, the circus makes an incredible comeback, attracting persuasive entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere (Michael Keaton), who recruits the peculiar pachyderm for his newest, larger-than-life entertainment venture, Dreamland. Dumbo soars to new heights alongside a charming and spectacular aerial artist, Colette Marchant (Eva Green), until Holt learns that beneath its shiny veneer, Dreamland is full of dark secrets. “Dumbo” soars into theaters on March 29.
