MEF is proud to introduce New England’s own Circus Smirkus to the South Shore. Circus Smirkus is Vermont’s own award-winning international youth circus. Since 1987, we’ve promoted the skills, culture and traditions of the traveling circus, inspiring youth to engage in life-changing adventures in the circus arts.
Every summer, a freshly auditioned company of Smirkus Troupers, ages 10 to 18, takes to the road in traditional ‘Mud Show’ fashion for a two-month performance tour of New England. Backed by professional coaches, cooks, musicians and crew, our 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. We give our Troupers the full experience of touring in a classic traveling tent show. That means a complete immersion in circus life. 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!
Information about the upcoming show in Marshfield will be coming soon.
