If you want to apply to join Sir Sidney’s Circus, here’s what you must do:

1. Fill out the application. (Click here to download it.)

2. Write a letter to Sir Sidney and explain why you want to join his circus.

3. Get a letter of recommendation from a friend, classmate, or relative. Ask this person to explain in a letter why you should be given a job in the circus. (Hint: Grandparents often write wonderful letters. If your grandparents live far away, you could ask your grandmother or grandfather to email you a letter of recommendation.) 

That’s it! Mail everything (one application, one letter from you, one letter about you) to:

                            Sir Sidney’s Circus
                            c/o Kate Klise*        
                            P.O. Box 744
                            Mountain Grove, MO 65711

Sir Sidney will be in touch with you as soon as he has time to review your application packet.

Note to teachers/librarians: If more than one student is applying, please include all the application packets in one big envelope so Sir Sidney can respond to everyone at the same time.  

*Who’s Kate Klise? Sir Sidney’s personal secretary, that’s who.
