Circus Smirkus, Vermont’s award-winning international youth circus, is back on the road with its 2013 Big Top Tour with six shows at the Champlain Valley Exposition, July 9, 10, and 11, celebrating a 26-year tradition. The traveling youth circus performs almost 70 shows this summer, from the mountains of Vermont to the shores of Maine. Twenty-nine stars, ages 11 to 18, bring youthful exuberance and polished skills from all parts of the country and the world. The 2013 Big Top Tour takes to the road in late June and travels through mid-August.
Grab your ruby slippers and click your heels together, as Circus Smirkus goes somewhere over the rainbow with a new spin on the “Wizard of Oz.” It will take acrobatic thinking, high wire hearts, and courageous clowns to embark on this Emerald City adventure! This time it’s all flying monkey business as we cartwheel down the yellow brick road to a new twist in the tale. Pull back the curtain and discover fun for the whole family as Circus Smirkus presents “Oz Incorporated.”
