Malone said people will be treated to aerials, juggling, clowning and a little bit of fire. 

"When you go to a circus it's happening in front of you," Malone said.

"There [are] no special effects. You see that physical activity, the artistry that people bring to it — right in front of you. You see the sweat when you're in the front row."

After the show in St. John's, Circus Glorious heads to Grand Falls - Windsor, Gander, Stephenville and Corner Brook.
