The Circus is in Town

Posted on July 21, 2010. Filed under: All Ages, Event |

A circus is coming to Waltham, but it is a circus with a unique twist.

The circus is called Circus Smirkus and every summer, a company of talented Smirkus Troupers go on a two-month performance tour around New England. The troupers are all kids (ages 12-17) with adult performance coaches on hand. They are from around the world and after a tough audition process, learn their routines and head out on the only full season American youth circus tour under their own big top – an European style one ring tent. During the season, these youth also learn about responsibility, teamwork and giving as they work together traveling in the Circus.

Circus Smirkus is presented in most towns by a local non-profit youth or community organization. The ticket sales and sponsorships they raise through the Circus Smirkus performances provide a major souce of income for their programs.

Limited tickets at the door so best to buy in advance, though there are some fine print details to review on their website regarding online ticket purchases.

Massachusetts performances are July 23-25, at Gore Place (Gore Street, Waltham). Performances on Friday and Saturday are at 2pm and 7pm. Performances on Sunday are at 11am and 4pm. Adult ticket prices are $25, which may be steep for some though similar to an IMAX ticket price for others. Kids under 2 are free and kids from 2-12 are $18.
