Cirque du Soleil Rolls Into KCMO


KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Cirque du Soleil has rolled into town — and it was probably pretty hard to miss them.

It took more than 15 semi-trucks to lug around some 500-thousand pounds of gear.

The show features 52 performers from 18 different countries — including acrobats, gymnasts, dancers and everyone’s favorite — clowns.

Performers spent the afternoon rehearsing for their debut show Wednesday evening at the Sprint Center.

It took more than 12 hours to unload and set-up for the performance — which runs through Sunday.
