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!

EVANSVILLE 2006: SNAPSHOTS

AFTER FINALE
The crew is rolling the flag, & the elephants are waiting to start rides. Love those non-stop 3 show days!

CAT ARENA


HADI TEMPLE CALLIOPE
This is basically a Roll Calliope, I'm not sure but I think the keys work too, at any rate the sound of an old fasioned Circus is there.


BACK YARD
Who parked that Rickshaw there?

I played this date with the LaBlondes Aerial Bar Act, the first time they used this building in 1956, it was produced by E.R."Pop" Gray, & some other acts that that I remember were, Prof. Keller's Cats; La Norma, Single Tapeze; The Cycling Sidneys; The St Leons, Teeterboard; & Jimmy Douglass was Producing Clown.
The next time I played it was 1964 for Al Dobritch, in fact Trudy & I debuted the Kimris Act there. I don't know if the Calliope was there in '56, but it has been there for as long as I can remember otherwise.

Wow, I really miss being there this year. I started in Evansville in 1988 and the year I'm not there, they finally change the web costumes!!!!!!! I am always amazed how clear those cell phone photos are. It is almost like being there. I would like to see a picture of the web girls.
