Step right up, ladies and gents.
Believe the unbelievable and dream the impossible because Hannah, the little girl with big dreams, is coming your way.
Come and see for yourself her bold acts of bravery, her courageous conviction as she proves to the world that the Brooklyn Bridge is safe to cross.

P. T. Barnum and his parade of twenty-one elephants provide a spectacular show that will save the day!
Impossible, you say?
Then you'll have to look inside.
You won't want to miss this, the greatest show on earth.
