Jordan World Circus

Jordan Circus, Utah Valley University, UVU, Orem Utah, UCCU Events Center, Utah ValleyLions and tigers; amazing aerialists; dashing, daring, dauntless daredevils; fabulous funny clowns; enchanting elephants; boundless feats of balance and agility; hazardous horsemanship; precision performing animals of all shapes and sizes; plus we can bring in those mania motorcycle manipulators, the amazing Jordan ‘Danger Zone’ riders in the unbelievable Globe of Death! Producer Jody Jordan, who was taught motorcycle stunt riding by his father, the legendary John Jordan, one of the originators of the act, took the act in a new direction with a show stopping appearance on the block-buster television super special “Wow.” He also undertook the daunting task of teaching riding to Alfonso Ribeiro, star of the television series “Fresh Prince of Bel Air” for his spectacular appearance on the TV spectacle “Circus of the Stars.”

JORDAN WORLD CIRCUS features many new and exciting effects created especially for this show by the imaginative use of lighting, fireworks, staging and music. These amazing effects create a stunning response from the audience, and are one of the things that the JORDAN WORLD CIRCUS is known for. Rarely has such a sophisticated and intriguing show been available in any other but the largest cities and towns. Yes, it’s a truly kaleidoscopic wonderland of sight, sound and color all blended into one memorable entertainment experience that will not soon be forgotten.

The JORDAN WORLD CIRCUS, one of North America’s premier traveling circuses, is owned and produced by Jody Jordan of Las Vegas, Nevada. Hailing from a long background of aerialists and circus performers, Jordan brings a unique talent to the circus management field. His exciting two hour shows are presented on annual tours from coast to coast and border to border by local Shrine Centers and clubs, police and fire associations, civic clubs and organizations, merchant associations, local presenters and venues, and fairs, festivals, parks and the like.

Charlotte’s Web

Matinees on September 19 & 26

The Children’s Literature Association named this “the best American children’s book of the past two hundred years,” and Joseph Robinette, working with the advice of E.B. White, has created a play that captures this work in a thrilling theatrical presentation. All the enchanting characters are here: Wilbur, the irresistible young pig who desperately wants to avoid the butcher; Fern, a girl who understands what animals say to each other; Templeton, the gluttonous rat who can occasionally be talked into a good deed; the Zuckerman family; the Arables; and, most of all, the extraordinary spider, Charlotte, who proves to be “a true friend and a good writer.” Determined to save Wilbur, Charlotte begins her campaign with the “miracle” of her web in which she writes, “Some pig.” It’s the beginning of a victorious campaign which ultimately ends with the now-safe Wilbur doing what is most important to Charlotte. This is a beautiful, knowing play about friendship that will give you an evening of enchantment.
