That’s how my family feels about going to see Circus Smirkus. It’s one of our favorite days of the summer, and of the whole year. My children “practice” circus all year long and when the flyer comes in the mail announcing the new show there is extra tumbling with excitement.
Last year we hosted a giveaway for Circus Smirkus tickets and that’s exactly what we plan to do again this year!
First let me tell how about how special Circus Smirkus is! This year’s troupe of 29 come from 13 states, and are aged 11-18! They’ll perform 70 shows over 7 weeks in 15 cities and towns around New England and New York. They take their audience to magical and fun places. This show is not just for kids! I not only enjoy the comedy but am in awe of the strength and abilities of these young adults!
Here is a bit about this year’s show: ”
“Dig into another serving of Circus Smirkus! This season, we follow a new recipe to whet your appetite, exploring the culinary arts and food’s fantastic flavors in our Big Top bistro. It’s a multiple course menu with acrobatic hors d’oeuvres, juggling sous chefs, sweet and sour unicycles, and high frying aerialists. Every delicious discovery is freshly baked fun, spiced with excitement, sautéed in silliness, with a pinch of whimsy. Something taste funny? Must be the clowns! So grab your fork and tuck in your napkin for a tasty triumph, as Circus Smirkus proudly presents the 2015 Big Top Tour: Bon Appétit!”
