If I Joined the Circus (movie trailer)

Like most moms, some days are hard and I dream of running away to join the circus. In reality, I would take my kids over smelly animals any day. But it’s fun to think about what it would be like to actually join the circus.
If I were to join the circus, my job of choice would probably not be one that most people would think of. I would not be a trapeze artist or a lion tamer. I would not be a bearded lady or the world‘s shortest woman. I would love to be the ticket taker.

In college, I was pregnant with my first child and worked in the cafeteria. I had a horrible morning sickness all day long and could not stand to be around food. So the manager, a dear friend of mine, made me the cashier. I loved every second of it!

As the cashier or the ticket taker at a circus, you get to see everyone come in. You are the face that greets them and ask them how they are doing. Those kind words of greeting can make a person’s day!

I am very extroverted and I usually gain energy from being around a lot of people! I love busy stores and the rush of Christmas time and big conferences or events. I like looking at interesting people and talking with whoever I’m standing near. Learning a little bit about people and usually finding out what a small world we live in, those are things that I really enjoy about being around people. That’s why I think being a ticket taker for a circus would be so fun! Everyone loves a circus and you could meet multi generation families or aspiring circus acts that are scouting your circus. You could meet politicians and movie stars and moms and dads. Doesn’t that just sound exciting? 

While being the ticket taker may not be a daring job, I think it would be one that would suit me well. If that did not pan out, I could totally be the ringmaster!

Dumbo - the classic tale of the elephant who can fly - comes out in a whole new way in theaters March 29th. Here is a synopsis of the film: From Disney and visionary director Tim Burton, “Dumbo” expands on the beloved classic story where differences are celebrated, family is cherished and dreams take flight.   Circus owner Max Medici (Danny DeVito) enlists former star Holt Farrier (Colin Farrell) and his children Milly (Nico Parker) and Joe (Finley Hobbins) to care for a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him a laughingstock in an already struggling circus. But when they discover that Dumbo can fly, the circus makes an incredible comeback, attracting persuasive entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere (Michael Keaton), who recruits the peculiar pachyderm for his newest, larger-than-life entertainment venture, Dreamland. Dumbo soars to new heights alongside a charming and spectacular aerial artist, Colette Marchant (Eva Green), until Holt learns that beneath its shiny veneer, Dreamland is full of dark secrets.
