Step right up and enter the dazzling world of P.T. Barnum, where imagination and ambition know no bounds.  Delight at every sight, wonder and miracle as the creator of spectacle comes to town with a sensational show featuring a whole host of characters.
Hand in hand with wife Charity, Barnum’s life and career twists and turns as he schemes and dreams his way to headier heights. However, the irresistible pull of an ever-bigger humbug comes at a cost, and the people paying are usually those on whom Barnum tramples, on the way to the top.
Come follow the band with the glorious multi-award-winning Cy Coleman’s music, Michael Stewart’s lyrics and Mark Bramble’s book in this brand-new production directed by Jonathan O’Boyle (Cruel Intentions: The 90s Musical – West End, The Last Five Years -Southwark Playhouse & West End), choreographed by Oti Mabuse who returns to the Watermill after her work on Kiss Me Kate in 2019, and featuring an ensemble cast of actor-musicians and circus performers.
Following the sell-out smash hit The Lord of the Rings, this summer, come and be immersed in the magical world of the circus at The Watermill Theatre.
