Dear Friends of the Sideshow,

The Incredible Gill-Man will join magicians, clowns, belly dancers, gymnasts and sideshow performers for the All-Star Magical Revue at the Criterion Theatre in Bar Harbor, Maine, on July 4 at 2:30 pm. The Incredible Gill-Man is the featured attraction this year in a variety show bursting with talent. Ring 362 of the International Brotherhood of Magicians asked The Incredible Gill-Man to travel from his home near Allentown, PA, to perform in the show after one of its members saw his performance at a gathering of sideshow performers last September.

Unlike the magicians, The Incredible Gill-Man has only one trick, but it's a good one: he breathes under water! That, and his appearance, make for a performance that people will remember for the rest of their lives.

Getting The Incredible Gill-Man to perform on the stage of the Criterion Theatre proved to be a challenge. The group carefully investigated the ability of the stage to bear the weight of the quantity of water required. After clearing the act with Rob Jordan of the Criterion Theatre and reviewing safety procedures with the Fire Chief, the only remaining issue was compensation. Prohibited by its policies as a nonprofit to pay performers, the group instead made The Incredible Gill-Man an offer he couldn't refuse: a giant sideshow banner depicting his act. The banner, painted by local artist Paul Szauter, will join three other sideshow banners to set the stage for the show.

Admission to the All-Star Magical Revue is $8 for adults and $5 for persons twelve years of age and under. The proceeds benefit two nonprofit organizations, Ring 362 of the International Brotherhood of Magicians and the Criterion Theatre and Arts Center. Tickets are available in advance from the Criterion Theatre box office.

Our contractual arrangements with The Incredible Gill-Man prohibit us from displaying photographs showing his appearance, although we are permitted to use the banner image for promotion.

Yours,

Paul
