Details about the Show

Three-Ring Circus Radio Show features a comedy skit from “Our Miss Brooks,” in which a schoolteacher is tasked with finding a mascot for the high school football game by visiting a traveling circus and an original melodrama in which a circus ringmaster makes a series of death-defying escapes. And no circus show is complete without a center-ring performance by a hula hoop performer from the modern-day Inspyral Circus. In respect for the changes in modern circus culture, no animals will be present at the show.   

The 1940s Radio Theater is a national award-winning performance series hosted by the Edmond History Museum and directed by Barrett Huddleston. The one-hour and fifteen minute show features live local actors reading from historic radio scripts, with the addition of original material. Music is provided by Chazlen Rook.


Tickets to Three-Ring Circus Radio Show will be performed live at the Edmond History Museum, 431 S. Boulevard in Edmond. CLICK HERE FOR TICKETS

Circus Exhibit

The show’s circus theme was selected to compliment the new exhibit: “Under the Big Top: Edmond’s Overwintering Circus.” From 1900 until the 1976, a section along Santa Fe & Kelly in Edmond was home to a circus company. Each winter, animal training and new acts were in progress during the off season. Some Edmondites still remember hearing lions roar in the distance. The exhibit features the circus’ history, including artifacts and photographs.
