GREAT FALLS -

"So we have the really exciting shrine circus tonight we have 2 shows at one at 4 and the other is at 7:30, our doors are open an hour before each performance," says Emerson.

The Great Falls Shrine Circus is here in the electric city and ready to wow the crowds with some amazing acts.

"It's really unique the audience gets a chance to come down actually on the circus floor in the ring they get a chance to ride our elephants," explains Ringmaster Tess Emerson.

But to getting the entire show ready for dancers, tigers and camels takes some work.

"It does take a lot," adds Emerson.

In fact crews are setting in at the crack of dawn and working all the way to midnight setting a removing the entire set and all the safety ropes.

"The guys come in here very early in the morning and they start setting up almost just about right up until show time. it takes a lot to get the show going it's a big show and we want to make sure everything is perfect," says Emerson.

Deweese Jackson has been traveling with the Jordan World Circus for a year and while the set up may be the hardest part, the best part to him is the travel.

"Well you got to start off with the vinyl, put them on sticks that takes a long time like maybe and hour or 2, and I was blowing them up also and unwrapping toys setting them up, putting them in the right order, it's great you get to travel the world see the world for free, you know like see all different types of people," says Jackson.

So it's really thanks to Emerson, Jackson and the rest of the crew for if it wasn't for them folks wouldn't get to see one of the greatest shows on Earth.
