The Greatest Sideshow on Earth

By: Eddie McPherson

Age Level: Middle Grades to High School
Cast: 12F, 5M, 9-15 optional extras
Time: 90 minutes, 2 acts

Irresistibly funny! Crazy costumes, kookie characters, and weirdo stunts make this show an end-to-end laugh riot. A hilarious spoof of a phony circus sideshow with a seven-eyed woman, a two-headed man, a jungle girl, a ventriloquist, a Martian man, a gorilla and two surprise visitors from outer space. Starring fake-freak roles for a large cast of performers that want to really ham it up. Lots of crazy action as several teens try to save Mrs. Bucklewash’s sideshow from closing down. They improvise their own sideshow acts after the star performer quits. Everything goes wrong but turns out wonderfully right. The kind of show that succeeds no matter what happens. One set, two acts.
