Circus World Museum open again

BARABOO - Circus World Museum opened this weekend in Baraboo to throngs of visitors, and staff members are anticipating a good 2010 season, with a new lineup of international talent in the circus arts.
The season began with a Wild West show Saturday and Sunday, complete with a stage coach robbery and appearances by actors portraying Annie Oakley and Theodore Roosevelt, which more than 2,000 people attended. In comparison, executive director Steve Freese said, last year's opening weekend had about 1,000 visitors.
The museum is introducing a new lineup of regular acts this year, ranging from a British dog act to twin Argentinian jugglers to a Siberian aerial artist. Program director and ringmaster Dave SaLoutos said the international choices were intentional in a year that marks the 200th anniversary of the birth of circus entrepreneur P.T. Barnum, who did much to bring international talent to America, as well as turning the circus into a viable business in the 1870s.
