BILL PRICKETT VISITS--

HAMID-MURAT SHRINE CIRCUS

3-03-12

I spent a delightful Sat afternoon in Indpls, Ind., visiting the Hamid Production of the 67th. MURAT SHRINE CIRCUS.

James, Jr., Shirley, Belinda, James 111, and Haley were all there and working on the show. Music was provided by Larry Rothbard, keyboard, and Tony Bruno, percussion. They do such a great professional job.

Finally got to see the FLYING PAGES aerial act and it is specutalor.

I had seen Shane Hansen perform many times but had never met him and his lovely wife Alecia. Alecia had a hand in designing the Aquriun aerial presentation.

Was surprised, and pleased, to see Laura Herriott on the show with her dogs and mixed animal review. Also working in the act is her husband Fernando Ortiz.

Peter Sturgis, RM, does an excellent job and had several pieces of new wardbrobe.

Just Larry Clark was a hit with everyone, as was Johnny Rockett in his clown routines and Cybertron.

This date closed Sun evening and has to move 600 plus miles to Hamburg, PA., by Wed. to prepard for their March 15-18 show. This is a GREAT show and the Hamid family does a GREAT job.

Don't miss it.
