The Very Last Days of the First Colored Circus


Fresh from the success of his Helen Hayes Recommended hit, Chocolate Covered Ants, Steven A. Butler, Jr. returns with a redemptive new story of love, loss, and family set against the backdrop of the 1927 Charles County Fair.  With new songs by Christopher John Burnett and Courtney Baker-Oliver (THE TRUTH) and choreography by Raquis Petree (Set It Off, the Musical), it is a story you wont soon forget.
