Ladies & Jellybeans!

Watsonville, CA: Hello everybody! Circus Imagination is lucky to be back at the 2012 Santa Cruz County Fair! We love this fair and the great feedback we get from the public! This week the children really made us laugh and sometimes even put a new spontaneous spin in our show! I heard the funniest things such as:

Ringmaster starts the show saying: – “Ladies and jellybeans welcome to the circus…”

In the meantime, on the blue tarp where the kids wait to perform Tina the TightRope Walker starts giggling loudly together with an elephant. Their dialogue goes:

Tina: -“Ladies and jellybeans? Does that mean boys are the jellybeans and girls are ladies?”

Elephant: -“I’m a jellybean!”

Tina: -“Then I’m gonna eat you!”

She starts playfully pretending to bite the elephant. The other boys, a lion and the cowboy, sitting around them start to scream: “I’m a red jellybean,” “I’m a peanut butter one!”

Oh well by then the Ringmaster was staring at us waiting for Tina the Tight Rope Walker to come on stage. She is the first act in the circus, but the conversation was so cute and funny we all got caught up on it. Even myself, the one who’s supposed to put some order in the circus! Or at least send the kids in on order! Me and the kids got an evil look from the ringmaster, and the show went on!

Here are some pictures from this week’s fair and our wonderful volunteers! There’s nothing like a child’s honest smile to melt our hearts!


I found this cute CLOWN POEM online that I would like to share with you guys:

Mr. Brown, the circus clown
puts his clothes on upside down.
He wears his hat upon his toes
and socks and shoes upon his nose.

He ties his ties around his thighs
and wraps his belt around his eyes.
He hangs his earrings from his hips
and stockings from his fingertips.

He puts his glasses on his feet
and shirt and coat around his seat.
And when he’s dressed, at last he stands
and walks around upon his hands.

–Kenn Nesbitt


Hopefully we’ll see you next year again!

Today our first show of the day welcomed Tina the Tight Rope Walker, and for the first time at Circus Imagination the princesses Champagne Sisters…. Check them out the picture below. The funniest thing was that on the second show of the day we also had a something new at the circus! Have you ever heard about how intelligent monkeys are? We here at Circus Imagination can prove that theory! We had a gorilla taming a troop of wild animals today! He made a leopard, a lion cub, a pony and a confused monkey roll over and play dead, show their claws, hooves and paws and jump through the hula-loop of fire! The unexpected always happens at out circus! Also on the pictures you can see a little “future-human-cannon-ball” on her dad’s lap with mom as the Strong Circus Woman and Ringmaster Caton posing for a lovely family pic!

We also found this awesome quote about our show in the Santa Cruz Parent Newsletter (for last year) and thought it would be nice to share! Here’s a print screen of the website, or click on the link to see the whole newsletter.
