Christopher Fitzgerald and Tamsin Carroll star in BARNUM at the Chichester Festival Theatre. This exhilarating musical follows the irrepressible imagination and dreams of Phineas T Barnum, America's Greatest Showman. The story of his life and his marriage to Chairy reveals a couple who looked at the world from opposite sides of the spectrum, and also reveals that she was the practical one who made his dreams come true. We follow the legendary showman's life as he lit up the world with the colour, warmth and excitement of his imagination and finally teamed up with J A Bailey to create Barnum and Bailey's Circus - the Greatest Show on Earth. BroadwayWorld brings you just-released production shots of the cast in action below!

Cy Coleman's wonderfully exuberant score includes the hitsCome Follow The Band, The Colours Of My Life and There's A Sucker Born Ev'ry Minute. Barnum will be produced especially for the Theatre in the Park, Festival 2013's magnificent temporary auditorium, its vast tented environment creating the perfect home for this brilliant, uplifting musical, shot through with the magic of circus.

Christopher Fitzgerald plays P T Barnum. A rising star on Broadway, he has garnered great acclaim and awards for roles such as Boq in the original cast of Wicked, Igor in Young Frankenstein, Og in Finian's Rainbow and Launcelot Gobbo in Al Pacino's production of The Merchant of Venice.
