    "This is always an engaging and fun family-friendly show. Each year they have a different theme and sometimes they have a performer from outside the USA. It is impressive what these young people can do."

    "My husband and I decided to go see this circus in CT when it came to our town. The tickets didn't cost much (compared to other events) and the performers were all children/teens, so maybe I didn't expect much. I was very pleasantly surprised! The performers were talented, enthusiastic, energetic and a pleasure to watch. The big top was very small and intimate so it's a great circus to bring kids to. I think this is a great show for young and old alike!"

    "We have been taking our children to see this show for several years now and we have never been disappointed. The talent is amazing and the show is enjoyed by all ages. It is inspirational for children to see regular kids like themselves who have learned how to do these amazing performances. I highly recommend this show to anyone with children (or without) who would like a wonderful alternative."

    "Take your kids to see Circus Smirkus! We brought our 3-year-old girl and our 6-year-old boy and they just loved it. Only complaint was that the sound system was a little too loud - more than once - but we just covered the kids' ears. The acrobats were amazing, the jugglers awe-inspiring, the skits really funny, makeup and costumes perfect. The showmanship and energy of the performers is infectious! We loved it and have recommended it to everyone we know."

    "Not only is this a great show for everyone, we were amazed at the talent and performances of these kids! Amazing. They are so passionate and it shows. Seating can be tight inside the tent so get there early to get a good seat. There are the typical fair/festival refreshments and snacks available before you go in. Note: on warm days it can get pretty hot in the tent so bring some water."
