The circus is coming to town along with a Miss Behaving ring leader who has her own game show. Circus 1903 — The Golden Age of Circus debuts July 25 while The Miss Behave Gameshow opens on July 7.

Circus 1903 brings all of the thrills and daredevil entertainment one would expect from the circus, with an exciting new twist. Puppetry puts elephants back in the ring as never seen before by introducing the largest ever performing African elephant and her baby. Led by a cunning ringmaster, the production features a huge cast of strong men and contortionists, acrobats and musicians, knife throwers and high wire acts and much more.

And those elephants? They’re puppets that appear throughout the show as the mother teaches her calf the tricks of the trade.

Tickets begin at $49. The shows perform in the Paris Theater at Paris Las Vegas Tuesday through Sunday at 7 p.m., with additional performances at 3 p.m. on Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday, and will be dark on Monday. Tickets can be purchased online at Circus1903.com, by phone at 702-777-2782.

Over at the new Back Room at Bally’s, The Miss Behave Gameshow brings a game show with no rules and where everyone’s a winner with a host of prizes and variety acts. Guests will be pitted against other audience members in a series of challenges, some involving their phones. Two digital tribes — those with iPhones versus others — battle it out to win something, nothing, or maybe a TV. Games include Dial My Number Quickest, The Laid Lottery, Sit on a Seat and See What Happens, Shazam That Riff, Porn I’ll Admit To and Smash a Phone.

The Miss Behave Gameshow performs Wednesday through Sunday at 8 p.m. with doors opening at 7 p.m. Tickets are $49.99 at missbehavegameshow.com.
