Circus Smirkus in Payson Park

Please Note: This event is rain or shine. Seating is bleachers under a circus tent. Accessible seating is avialable on the ground level for anyone who can’t climb bleachers.

Enter an enchanted forest and let your imagination run away with the circus! Circus Smirkus brings magic and mayhem, love and chaos to the big top with the 2023 Big Top Tour: A Midsummer Night’s Circus. A cast of thirty talented youth get entangled in the dream-like woods where sprites contort in the trees and fairies fly through the air. Trouble ensues when they all cross paths with the king and queen of the fairies, their fantastical court, and the chief mischief-maker, Puck! This exquisite acrobatic adaptation of Shakespeare’s beloved comedy will leave you awe-inspired and utterly enchanted!
