Description: Barnum traces the career of America’s greatest showman from 1835 to the year he joined with James A. Bailey to form the Greatest Show on Earth. P.T. Barnum was the King of Humbug; the exaggeration of fact. This energetic show tells Barnum’s life through the setting of scenes and acts in a circus. We Follow his life with his wife, Chairy, his living curiosities from Joice Heth the Oldest Woman in the World, through the smallest man, Tom Thumb, and Barnum’s first respectable attraction, Jenny Lind the Swedish Nightingale. Surrounding the great showman are circus type performers, clowns, a Ringmaster, show goers, and an on-stage circus band.
The score includes I Like Your Style, Come Follow the Band, The Colors of My Love, There Is a Sucker Born Every Minute, The Prince of Humbug, Black and White, Join the Circus.
