Circus Master P.T. BARNUM comes to BERWYN for four weeks!

Mr. and Mrs. P.T. Barnum were spotted at Whole Foods in Devon on Saturday, April 19th!

Phineas Taylor Barnum, the “master of humbug” and a magnificent showman of the mid-1800’s, spent his life finding incredible persona and acts to share with his ever growing audiences.  He introduced America to Jumbo the Elephant, Jenny Lind the "Swedish Nightingale", the famous "little man" General Tom Thumb and many more. 

Mark Bramble took the remarkable story of P.T. Barnum's roller coaster life of success and failure and put them to music by Cy Coleman (lyrics by Michael Stewart) and then liberally mixed in The Circus in this one-of-a kind production, unlike any musical you may have ever seen. 

BARNUM opens at FOOTLIGHTERS THEATER on Friday, April 25th and runs four weekends through May 17th.  While the show is slated to begin at 8pm each night (2pm on Sundays), Mr. Barnum invites his audiences to arrive 30 minutes early to enjoy the pre-show circus fun.  Tickets are available for just $16 at the door or online (to assure your seat in the Big Top) at http://www.footlighterstheater.com/barnum/.  Discounts are provided for matinees and those under 18.

Wake up people. Never support a circus that supports the use of helpless animals as entertainment. Elephants, lions, tigers or anything else like it. When the elephants are not working, they are chained up by one foot so they can get away.

Elizabeth: Please Note: This is a community theater MUSICAL about the life and times of P.T. Barnum. There are NO animals in this production whatsoever. The only helpless animals who may be suffering are the all volunteer actors and production staff who have been working tirelessly to bring this wonderful music and love story to life; they could use some TLC, some extra sleep and maybe a few peanuts thrown their way! BARNUM opens TONIGHT at Footlighters Theater! We encourage all lovers of theater and animals to come join us for a rousing production! Doors open at 7:30 and we run for the next four weekends! www.footlighterstheater.com/barnum
