Greatest Show on Earth is hiring for the summer
Ringling Bros. & Barnum and Bailey Circus will hold a job fair next week for 200 ticketing, ushers and maintenance positions for its Coney Island summer run.
“We want to work directly with the Coney Island community,” said Stephen Yaros of Feld Entertainment, which runs the circus.
“We’re taking the steps to hire local people for as many positions as possible.”
The fair will be held Wednesday, May 27, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Keyspan Park, the Brooklyn Cyclones’ home field.
Anyone 16 and older can apply for the jobs, which run June 18 to Sept. 17. Applicants should download forms at www.thecidc.org and complete them before coming to the fair.
The circus’ “Boom a Ring” show will run on the Coney Island Boardwalk all summer long.
