Since 1987, Circus Smirkus has been launching adventurous young people to new heights through the spectacular circus arts. Now celebrating its 30th anniversary, the award-winning international youth circus founded by Rob Mermin kicks off its annual Big Top Tour with Midnight at the Museum. This original full-length show stars a troupe of auditioned “Smirkos” ages 12 through 18 in a whimsical adventure set in — you guessed it — a magical museum. Don’t be fooled by their youth — these daring performers inspire awe and wonder with feats of wire walking, clowning, juggling, rolla bolla, aerial artistry and more. Step right up!
