Post I'm looking for musicals set at fairs or circuses
Hi, I have to find extracts from musicals for my job that are set at fairs or at the circus. I would like three that have enough interesting dialogue and songs that children would do well.
So far I have Barnum. Which is great. Carousel which is quite dull for the theme. All the fun of the fair which is a little adult.
Then I know about scenes from Mary Poppins, chitty bang bang, Pinocchio.

Does anyone have any other suggestions. I basically have to select a musical per age group. 6-9,10-12,13-16. And build an extract that is 20 mins long with dance, songs and dialogue.

Thanks!

While not wholly there, part of Seussical happens at the Circus McGurkus (sp?)
