On Tuesday afternoon, Circus Smirkus presented  “A Midsummer Night’s Circus,” centered around the plot of Shakespeare’s famous “A Midsummer Night’s Dream," at the High Mowing School. It was the troupe’s third performance of four at High Mowing, with two on Monday and a night showing on Tuesday.

The Big Top Tour spans almost 20 towns across New England and features the only tent-performing traveling youth circus in the country. The troupe performs under traditional circus tents and consists of members ages 13 to 18.
