The Great Y Circus runs from September – April every years and auditions take place every August at Redlands Y. During the summer, the YMCA offers a summer Circus program that offers a variety of classes to become familiar with acts before auditions. Children are encouraged to attend the Circus performance in May to discover which acts they would like to learn.
The Great Y Circus was founded in 1929 by Director, Roy Coble, a former Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus Clown. The Y Circus has grown tremendously throughout the years and now has close to three hundred performers. Each year, performers practice from September through April to prepare for the annual shows held in May. During the month of May, the Circus hosts 9 performances at the Redlands Y.
