Drive an hour and a half northwest of Muncie and you’ll find Peru, Indiana, the former winter quarters for the Hagenbeck-Wallace Circus and the setting of The Circus in Winter, a musical premiering tonight at the Ball State University Theatre.  The musical is based on a fictionalized historical novel by Cathy Day that chronicles life in the circus.  IPR’s Sarah Phinney reports.
