Circus Smirkus is Coming to Kennebunkport

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN...MEN...MEN...MEN...right here in Kennebunkport, under the big top, a one-ring circus extraordinaire.

Circus Smikus will be held at Rocking Horse Stables on August 6th and 7th and is sure to delight children of all ages.

Circus Smirkus began 20 years ago and is made up of talented Smirkus Troupers, ages 10 to 18, their coaches and crew. They tour New England for two months, putting on performances in conjunction with local non-profit or community youth organizations. This year's Kennebunkport performance is being presented by the Kennebunkport Consolidated PTA.

Smirkus Troupers are selected by audition and work hand-in-hand with professional circus artists. Troupers become completely immersed in circus life. They undergo rigorous training and participate in all aspects including setting up and packing up the big top and all related chores (perhaps this will make some think twice about running away with the circus). A Circus Smirkus Trouper can expect to participate in over 70 shows, presented in 14 towns over the 7 week schedule.

So, come one, come all to the Greatest Show in Kennebunkport.

We still have accommodations for families traveling with children at The Maine Stay. Give us a call at (800) 950-2117 and make lasting memories for you and your family.

At The Maine Stay Inn, "we have the nicest guests!"

This year's performances of the Circus Smirkus 20th Anniversary Big Top Tour are fantastic! 28 troupers, ages 11 - 18, from all over the U.S., France, Colombia, and Mongolia, express so much joy with such aerial and acrobatic skill and hilarious clowning antics with the traditional theme-based show. This year it's the Zoot Suit Caper: A Boogie Woodie Whodunit. The costumes and choreography are stunning. If you saw it last year, you will notice the theatrical evolution of certain clown characters, now a year older (second year female clowns portray strong and funny female images). If you haven't seen it yet, don't delay!

For a special preview of this year’s show, please visit “Stuck In Vermont"’s Vlog feature on Circus Smirkus, recorded from our opening show in Vermont on July 1st:


"(O)ne of the most creative, educational, and motivational youth programs around. It was total energy from start to finish," including "such professionalism from a show performed by youngsters in a one-ring tent. The athleticism, staging, artistic direction, costumes, music, and timing were honed to perfection." Vermont Magazine May/June ‘06
