The Magnificent Circus Mystery

The Magnificent Circus Mystery

A steamer trunk, a mysterious book, and a hat belonging to Harry Houdini begin a show filled with magic, juggling, unicycling, and physical comedy. The audience must solve clues, overcome obstacles, and figure out a 90 year-old-secret as they help to create the story from beginning to end. Based on a real character, the kids are empowered to write about people and events in their own lives, while discovering how authors develop story ideas.

Note: There is also a non-multimedia version that works well for outdoor venues and shallow stages.

Note: This show incorporates a LOW fog dry ice machine, as well as magic tricks that use minimal, contained fire. A version without fire and fog can be performed if necessary.
