The circus is in town. The Flying Bambinos and The Flying Ivanovitches, rival trapeze artists, face off in a deadly act of daring feats. Tino Bambino and Princess Pinky are engaged and will be married over their fathers' dead bodies. The world of gypsies and circus performers with their strange customs is a breeding ground for deadly escapades. The zany combination of gorillas, lion tamers, clowns, kidnappings, calliopes and fortune tellers leads to mirth and mayhem in this three ringed circus charmer of a mystery.

CHORUS SIZE

N/A (Not a musical)

IVAN IVANOVITCH - King of the Gypsies. Claims to be the head of the greatest family of trapeze artists alive. The descendant of a long line of Hungarian Circus Gypsies.
MADAME BAZOOMBAS - Queen of the Gypsies. Spouse and second counsin to Ivan. Trapeze artist and fortune teller. Performed by a man in drag.
PRINCESS PINKY - largely proportioned daughter of Ivan and Marushka. "The Pride of Hungary." Gypsies like their women with meat on their bones and Pinky has ample amounts. She is the centerpiece of the trapeze act. Secretly in love with Tino Bambino against the wishes of her parents.
TINO BAMBINO - son of Zippo. Strong muscular physique. Smitten with Princess Pinky and himself. He wants to own a circus one day. Broken Italian accent.
ZIPPO BAMBINO - patriarch of "The Flying Bambinos." Bitter Rival of the "Flying Ivanovitchs." A great clown of the circus and master of disguise. Disguises himself as a Catholic nun to prevent the marriage of Tino and Pinky. Broken Italian accent.
PRISCILLA PINKBOTTOM - attractive, aggressive Acme Rent-A-Cop. Always slightly off-the-mark but eventually on target. Inspector Clousseau type.
BINKY IVANOVITCH - (audience member) Daughter of Ivan and Bazoombas. Black sheep of the family. Misfit. She possesses all of the undesirable qualities of a gypsy woman-- shy, thin, attractive, and honest.
