Clown Around With Circus Smirkus!

Every summer, a freshly auditioned company of Smirkus Troupers, ages 10 to 18, takes to the road for a two-month performance tour of New England. Backed by professional coaches, cooks, musicians and crew, Smirkos perform to sell-out crowds in Circus Smirkus’ very own 750-seat European-style one-ring big top tent. Each year brings a new storyline and original full-length show combining the best in traditional and contemporary circus styles. Smirkos endure rigorous training, daily chores, and the loading in and loading out of the Big Top. They revel in the joy of performance and the camaraderie of a common purpose—the passion of a shared dream and nearly 70 shows in just seven weeks!
