Send out the clowns! The circus is coming!
Clowns, Charlee and Charlie, from Kelly Miller Circus will visit Jasonville on April 12 to entertain and give a free preview of the circus that will be in Jasonville April 26. From Florida, Charlee and Charlie's Adventure will entertain at the Shakamak Nursing Home at 8:30 a.m. with a repeat performance at the Lions Club at 10 a.m. The show will emphasize the importance of team work with a mix of audience participation, silly comedy and colorful clown magic, which is all wrapped around a bit of circus history. Charlee and Charlie have been performing together for 15 years and have won numerous awards for their unique style of entertainment. The Kelly Miller Circus, sponsored by the Jasonville Chamber of Commerce, will arrive at Hanna Field on April 26. The first show will start at 4:30 p.m. with a second performance at 7:30 p.m. Both performances will feature elephants, tigers, camels, juggling, skits, and clowns. There will also be a revolving 360 degree trapeze act, a dog and pony show, and a human volcano that will create a blast so huge that the audience can feel the heat. If tickets are purchased prior to the show, the prices are $6 for children under 12 years and $10 for adults. Tickets purchased at the box office will be $7 for children and $15 for adults. Tickets may be purchased at Bloomfield State Bank, Main Source Bank, Rash Hardware, and Gamble's Furniture. In case of rain, the circus will perform at the City Park.
