Theater in the Open actors in an original production, “Cinderella & the Pretty Princes”

Smirkus left Sandwich, MA to raise our Big Top yesterday on Manter Field in Newbury, MA, for 4 shows today and tomorrow!

Our Newbury shows benefit a very cool enterprise, Theater in the Open (or “Tito,” to those in the know), a company of dedicated professional and amateur artists who are proud to be in “in residence” at Maudslay State Park in Newburyport. The theater’s mission is to “transform the magical tradition of storytelling into theater.” Using puppetry, pageantry, music, movement and acting, the theater explores myths, classic literature, original scripts and modern dramas to produce a season of FREE theater each summer. From their “Summer Arts Workshop,” which has been educating and entertaining local youth since the theater’s inception  33 years ago, to  popular pantomimes and world-class interpretations  of modern drama, Theater in the Open seeks to provide its community with inspirational, affordable art.

Now’s your chance to support Theater in the Open and see Circus Smirkus. A very good example of a “win-win” situation!
