Welcome to the Center Brothers' Circus!
Just five years ago, Edgar Center, the owner of the Center Circus died. The circus had been performing in small towns on the Eastern seaboard of the United States for over twenty years. Edgar Center was content to keep the circus small and live with his family in the small town of Henniker, New Hampshire when they were not on the road.
After Edgar's death, the will was read, and he left his circus to his college educated and ambitious son, Sammy. This was a surprise to Edgar's wife, Tammy, as well as to his other son, Danny. They were disappointed that Sammy would be totally in charge of the circus.
Five years have passed since Sammy took over the circus and he has brought the circus to the big time – New York City! Sammy improved the popularity of the circus by changing its name to The Center Brothers' Circus and by adding a new, crowd-pleasing act – the clown car, a small, two-door electric vehicle which can only fit two clowns at a time. However, it has a trap door which opens to allow over 30 clowns to enter it, one by one, from a trap door on the floor of the performing area. Children love to see so many clowns coming out of the tiny car!
So tonight's the Center Brothers' big night and the Edison Garden in New York! We begin with an afternoon rehearsal before mayhem begins…

She used the kit with her senior class and she said:
"It went well!! They laughed out loud many times. My school principal was there as well as two other teachers."
Janet Umlauf, USA:
"We did your clown caper. The kids costumes were hilarious...we really got into that one -- lots of ad libbing. Decorations, etc. I had a really creative lady at church that re-created vintage posters with Center Circus on them. They looked really authentic. We had a blast! Our youth director is a body builder and he & his wife came as the Russian Gymnasts -- complete with some impressive routines. Too fun. I will be sending a couple of pix soon. All the kids said this was the best one ever!! Such a fun evening. Thanks for providing your great scripts!! Jan"
