Tuffy Nicholas, Super American Circus producer, said the Saipan crowd was “fantastic and phenomenal.”

“So many nice people, coming to see the show and enjoying!” he added.

He said the rest of the cast members were delighted and honored to perform on island.

Alexander Nap, who performed a juggling and comedy act, said: “Performing for these resilient people and seeing them laughing is such an honor.”

The circus also featured the exciting Blake Wallenda who defied gravity by walking on a tightrope.

Martin Espana also thrilled the crowd while performing on a four-story high revolving wheel.

Tammy Firefly performed her famous fire act; Ivan showed his skills on a Cyr wheel and unicycle; Alex and Christina performed foot juggling, rolla bolla, and comedy; Vivian and Keren, aerialists on silks, were just as impressive; Olena’s hula hoop act was stunning; Olex Kartukov performed a fun and comic juggling; while the ringmaster’s role was superbly played by Elaine Alcorn who is also a vocalist.

Members of the audience were also entertained by a pre-show and intermission activities, including photo opportunities with superhero characters and face painting.

Before heading to Saipan, the circus performed on Guam.

The circus was brought to Saipan by the Lady Diann Torres Foundation and Joeten Enterprises Inc.
