St. Catherine’s Players presents Barnum!

"Barnum's the name. P.T. Barnum. And I want to tell you that tonight you are going to see-bar none-every sight, wonder and miracle that name stands for!" Here is the show that traces the career of America's greatest showman from 1835 to the year he joined James A. Bailey to form The Greatest Show on Earth.

Join us for St. Catherine’s Players 2014 production of BARNUM with music by Cy Coleman, lyrics by Michael Stewart and book by Mark Bramble, which won Tony Awards for Best Actor, Scenic Designer and Costume Design, the Drama Desk Award for Best Actor, and the Outer Critics Circle Award for Broadway Musical. Barnum played for 854 performances on Broadway at the St. James Theatre and starred Jim Dale and Glenn Close.

The circus is coming to Greenwich! Come one, come all to see the strongmen, a Swedish soprano, the oldest woman alive and the smallest man in the world. Come be amazed by jugglers, tumblers, stilt-walkers and clowns. Get your popcorn, peanuts and animal crackers!
