Circus Smirkus | On the Road Again

Circus Smirkus proudly presents “On the Road Again” – their 2022 performance in Newbury Massachusetts

Hop on the bus for a coast-to-coast circus adventure with On the Road Again! Circus Smirkus’s 35th anniversary production is a rollicking cross-country tour along the highways and byways of the good ol’ USA. This unforgettable journey will include stops at sensational sights, bizarre roadside attractions, and the most famous landmarks on the map! Enjoy life in the fast lane as we hit the road with our high-flying aerialists, whimsical wirewalkers, astonishing acrobats and courageous contortionists – with Smirkus at the wheel, what could possibly go wrong?

This year's troupe is comprised of 30 hardworking and talented teenagers ages 11-18 who come from California, Colorado, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maryland, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Wisconsin.
Circus Smirkus is a 501(c)3 Nonprofit Organization whose mission is to promote the skills, culture and traditions of the traveling circus, inspiring youth to engage in life-changing adventures in the circus arts. Tickets revenue from these events goes back into developing circus programming for The Big Top Tour, Smirkus Camp, & School Residency programs.
