George Kramer resumed directorship of the of the Troupe during the fall semester.  In the spring, he returned to Louisiana State University to resume work on his PhD, but continued to provide support and guidance to the Troupe through phone calls and occasional visits. Bill Riley once again filled in as acting director while George was away.

Road show season entailed eight shows at high schools throughout the state of Maryland.


Like "Flights of Fun" and "Have Gymnasts Will Travel", Home Show 1965 took an imaginary trip around the world with each act representing a country, using the theme “Gymnastics International”.  The countries and acts (with the exception of Pyramids being Egypt, of course) did not match up the same way.  Free exercise represented Germany this time.  Trampoline represented France.  And the United States was represented by Chairs.
