Circus Smirkus

NEWBURY, MA —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. Pull back the curtain and discover fun for the whole family as Circus Smirkus presents “Oz Incorporated.”

Sponsored by Theater in the Open, which brings free family theater and storytelling to the Greater Newburyport community, Circus Smirkus is coming to town on Fri., August 2, and Sat., August 3.

Vermont’s award-winning international youth circus invites you to go over the rainbow with “Oz Incorporated.” It will take acrobatic thinking, highwire hearts, and courageous clowns to embark on this Emerald City Adventure. This time it’s all flying monkey business as they cartwheel down the yellow brick road to a new twist in the tale.

Theater in the Open will sponsor four performances at Manter Field, 81 Central Street, Newbury, on Fri., August 2 at 2:00 and 7:00 p.m., and Sat., August 3 at 12:30 and 5:30 p.m., which will leave the audience enough time to head to downtown Newburyport for the fireworks celebration.

Tickets cost $21.00 for adults and $17.00 for children between the ages of two and 12.

To purchase tickets, go to Eureka Toys in Newburyport, buy online at or call 877- SMI-RKUS. For group tickets or specific info about the local performance, call 978-465-2572.
