Iconic showman extraordinaire, motivational lecturer, best-selling author, public servant - P.T. Barnum lives again to celebrate the bicentennial year of his birth by sharing the secrets of his immense success and some wonderful stories of world-famous scams, including his own.

The program is distilled from actual lectures delivered and books written by P.T. Barnum and includes a "beautiful baby (picture) contest"; the very kind Barnum used to promote his exhibitions. Bring a baby picture to enter!

This program is funded with money from the vote of Minnesota residents on November 4, 2008, which dedicated funding to preserve our state's art and cultural heritage.
