Three years at CWM made me a real traditionalist, and I keep remembering Bob Parkinson saying, "I want the people to see what the circus used to be, not what it is today. That's what this site is about!

SNAPSHOT: GIL GRAY CIRCUS


Here's another one of those Plunketts, Cleo was Ringmaster with the Gray Show till it went off the road, I remember him throwing a bucket of water at one of the clowns during the Fire House Gag, man did he pay dearly for that. Gil Gray looked out on the field one show and saw Cleo being chased by the whole clown alley, each with a bucket of water. After the Gray Show, he went to Hubert Castle.

It's amazing what talent and versatility the whole Plunkett clan had, Like the Wilsons, most families of that era were able to do just about anything the show needed for the good of the show, and best of all they all were excellant at what acts they needed to perform. Then again they were entertainers Not just performers. to me there is a vast differance..
