The Great American Medicine Show

Professor Farquar

Historic narratives, comic chronicles, tall tales and unabashed balderdash. The greatest songs of the 19th Century (with "theme specific" programs for Fur Trade, Western Heritage and Civil War events). Amazing demonstrations of sharp shooting, illusion, science, chicanery, psychic forecasting and good old fashion flim-flam. Hands-on instruction in card and coin manipulation, juggling, old-time children's games and folk dances. Absolutely fabulous Victorian face art and Indian war paint. Palmistry and aura reading seminars. Incredible balloon critters. Authentic period costumes and props. Stage and roving entertainment. Complete sound system and medicine show wagon (optional). Professional performances - reasonable rates! Click below to read more.
