Music by Cy Coleman | Lyrics by Michael Stewart | Book by Mark Bramble

Ladies and gentleman, boys and girls, children of all ages … step right up and glance at the jugglers, clowns, trapeze artists, and the original ringleader of them all … Mr. P.T. Barnum! We’re giving a fresh, exciting new look to this classic Tony Award-winning American Musical. Based on the life of showman P.T. Barnum, this spectacle takes you to a world like none you’ve ever seen before! Here lies a rare gem that offers everything from traditional musical theatre to the tantalizing stir of excitement that one can only find waiting underneath the big top!

Recommended for ages 8+

“An evening of pure, exhilarating fun!” –New York Times
