The Royal Hanneford Circus takes great pride in introducing you to our Ringmaster, Mr. Billy Martin. Billy has been with the Hanneford Circus family for almost a decade. He has been voted #1 Ringmaster in the Circus to date. He is living his childhood fantasy, having grown up in a little town in near Buffalo New York, his dream was to become a Ringmaster. He “ran away from home” in his teens to join a small circus run by James Cole, “Cole’s All Star Circus” and the rest is history! He has performed in circuses throughout the United States and Canada. We are proud to say he is your Ringmaster

Among the feature acts in the 2009 version on the Royal Hanneford Circus is world renown Adam Burck and his spectacular, crowd pleasing, ferocious felines. This awe-inspiring and educational display combines the beauty and intelligence of exotic Bengal tigers with mutual respect and affection. A true animal training masterpiece!

Returning by popular demand, Miss Angela is our “Queen of the Air”. Angela has been performing on the single trapeze since she was a teenager. Hailing from a circus family she started practicing as a little girl on an “old axle” with two ropes tied to it , hanging under the grandstand seats of the circus. Performing death defying tricks high above, on the aerial trapeze, she will thrill you as she executes each and every move with the perfection of a great “artist”. Sit back, relax and enjoy a “rhapsody in flight”.

Davide Zoppe's Rhesus Monkey Revue. This is an act that is in a class by itself. A fast-paced great comedy show displaying some hilarious antics engineered and carried out by the primates themselves, offering one comedy skit after another. Consisting of seven Rhesus Monkeys, the Zoppes are the only ones known to ever attempt an entire act of this nature. Also, featured is the rare Black Celebese Ape, a show stopper in itself.

Under the direction of our dynamic circus ringmaster Billy Martin, the entire arena comes alive with the sounds and smells, and sights of the circus as he presents all of the acts including the amazing quick change artistry of the Smirnovs, the amazing acrobatic dexterity across all three rings by Miss Alicia, Miss Getti and the amazing Vlastic Duo; the hilarious antics of Roger and his trampoline; the circus fantasy of flight as the Cortes Flyers fly through the air with the greatest of ease high above the ring; the ever entertaining hilarious Salaam Shrine Circus clowns; and everyone’s favorite - the Royal Hanneford Circus elephants under the direction of Tim Frisco.
