ROAD REPORT: Kelly-Miller Clown Alley

Word comes to us today from Steve Copeland, today beginning his fourth season with America's One Ring Wonder - The Kelly-Miller Circus...

"Today is opening day for the 2012 season of Kelly Miller. Ryan and I are debuting six new numbers: an opening, a cover for the tiger cage strike, a chase, and three production gags."

The very best to the entire cast and crew. Last year's production will be very difficult to top and we're all eager to see what you two have come up with this time!
