One ticket voucher for the show's opening night at 7:30 p.m. on Jan. 6 will be given out for every donation of 10 nonperishable, unexpired food items, with the vouchers limited to four per household and on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Last year's food drive collected more than 7,000 pounds of food, equivalent to feeding about 233 families in Tampa, according to Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey.
