This exhilarating musical follows the irrepressible imagination and dreams of Phineas T Barnum, America’s Greatest Showman. The story of his life and his marriage to Chairy reveals a couple who looked at the world from opposite sides of the spectrum, and also reveals that she was the practical one who made his dreams come true. We follow the legendary showman’s life as he lit up the world with colour, warmth and the excitement of his imagination and finally teamed up with J A Bailey to create Barnum and Bailey’s Circus – the Greatest Show on Earth.
Starring Brian Conley and Linzi Hateley, Cy Coleman’s wonderfully exuberant score includes the hits; Come Follow the Band, The Colours of My Life and There is a Sucker Born Ev’ry Minute.

Conley made them laugh, gasp, cheer and hold their breath as he tackled the famous tightrope walk across the stage. It was a tremendous performance and I cannot imagine the show without him.
Barnum is a sheer delight and is sure to leave a smile on the faces of all audiences young and old. Make sure you catch it before the circus rolls out of town.
