Step up, step up! Right this way to the Medicine Show! A time to be amazed, be amused and have all of your cares, worries, aches and pains disappear! The Medicine Show has come to YOUR town!
And so the call goes out. Something so unique to America and Canada-combine the quack doctors of the old world with the circus of the new, and look out! The Medicine Show was born!
Please don't worry, we aren't going to try to solve your problems with some scurrilous medicine! Certainly not! Ours is totally above board! Why, if you use OUR medicine, your Husbands will be smarter! Wives will be prettier! Children will be quieter! Mules will be stronger! Cows will be contenteder! Chickens will be...well, chickener! The medicine shows of the past were made up a lot of families, and this one is no exception. Based upon an actual medicine show of the early 1800's, Faire Wynds has tried to bring you a fresh look at entertainments of the past. Because most of the show was devoted to the free entertianments, that is what we focus on, as well. Magic, juggling, feats of strength and dexterity, fire-eating and escapeology-with just a good dose of the Professor's good wit will keep just about any ill at bay!
And remember-if it ain't Professor Chalmers Bodkin-Child's Amazing Patent Medicine, it's something else!
The Medicine can cure even THIS!
