JASPER — The Magnificent Circus Mystery will be performed by Page Turner Adventures at the Jasper Arts Center at 3:30 p.m. Saturday.

A streamer trunk, a mysterious book and a hat belonging to Harry Houdini begin a show filled with magic, juggling, unicycling and physical comedy. The audience must solve clues, overcome obstacles and figure out a 90-year-old secret as they help to create the story from beginning to end.

The mystery begins when storyologist Page Turner and storyologist-in-training Kenny discover an unusual trunk that once belonged to a famous vaudevillian named Baldy the Magnificent who disappeared “on this very day” in 1927. The trunk contains Baldy’s juggling props, along with a strange book and an old hat that once belonged to Harry Houdini. With help from the once-upon-a-time machine and the entire audience, Page and Kenny finally discover the real secret of Baldy the Magnificent. Filled with slapstick comedy, magical airships, secret keys, ancient books, curious trunks and tons of audience interaction, The Magnificent Circus Mystery is perfect for family audiences and anyone who loves a good mystery.

Tickets — priced at $20 for adults and $8 for students and children — are available by calling the Jasper Arts Center at 812-482-3070. As a special offer, children 10 and younger receive free admission with each paid adult admission. Group rates are available.
