Clown Around With CIRCUS SMIRKUS!
Circus Smirkus, New England's premier traveling youth circus, is presenting an all-new show for 2019, Carnival. Come to the Big Top Tent to enjoy the lineup of spectacular and unforgettable acts, amazing acrobats, jaunty jugglers, and wondrous wire-walkers. Awe, delight, and side-splitting laughter awaits!
Every summer, a freshly auditioned company of Smirkus Troupers, ages 11 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. 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—a shared dream and nearly 70 shows in just seven weeks!

HOST SMIRKOS IN YOUR HOME
We need several host families to accommodate at least two troupers each. It's a memorable experience getting to know the troupers, learning about life as a Smirko, and making lifelong friends! See the Homestay information sheet and last year’s Circus Smirkus Homestay Handbook to get an idea about the details. For questions, please contact Sue Surner, firstname.lastname@example.org.
