Our jester's hat

Hello, everyone,
My wife is a teacher and has found a kid that is a very talented gymnast and tumbler. He is a perfect court jester, and she is hoping to use his skills as such. She found him a red and white jester's hat (Adult sized, unfortunately) and is intending to use him as a warm up for the Christmas show she has been coerced into doing.
I had sewn an elastic chin strap to keep it in place, but it still would slide around his head. I then took additional elastic and gathered some of the brim (bond) in order to cinch it down more. I was told after today's rehearsal it is still moving around too much.
Does anyone here have a tried and true method to keep their jester, well, gesturing instead of having to hold on to his hat?
I would really appreciate any suggestions

You could use the good old method of friction? A strip of foam-would help hold it in place- it'll soak up sweat of course.... flexible urethane foam, not eva/craft foam Also if it's depth related (distance between the top of his head and the inside of the cap) you may need to sew in a fitted cap rather than use elastic banding.
