~~BILL PRICKETT VISITS~~
KELLY MILLER CIRCUS
Villa Grove, Il, on 5-06-13
KELLY MILLER showed in Villa Grove, Il, on 5-06-3, without the rain. However, the lot was soggy and the show had to squeeze into a much smaller area, part on gravel/grass. Good turn out for first show. Running order was: Ryan Holder, 6 cats, Steve and Ryan (trombones) with John Moss, RM, Fridman Torales on stacking chairs, Mike Rice with two camels, Rual Olivares-juggler, Carpenter gag with Steve and Ryan, Tropical Fantasy, INT, Patsy Rosales-hula hoops, Fusco Family-drums, Tooth gag-Steve and Ryan, Animal Revue, Head balancing on trapazee, DelRita, Becky, Lisa - elephants with Armando Loyal, Pinky the dog- Rual Olivares, Rosales Family-perch pole.


Tropical Fantasy production number was outstanding. 3 young dancers on ground, 4 girls in the air, Rebecca Ostroff on trapazee, and Lamont doing fire acts. Beautiful wardrobe and a great crowd pleaser.

The animal revue, with Carolyn Rice, Fresca Eckelman, and Lemont, was also outstanding. Creative costumes on animals, very colorful, beautiful wardrobe on the performers, face paced, and the crowd loved it.
