Who wants to join the circus?

Youth audition opportunities now available for the Circus Smirkus 2019 Big Top Tour and advanced camp sessions.

★ Big Top Tour auditions now open★

Who Can Apply:
Youth ages 10–18 trained in circus or other physical disciplines, with strong teamwork skills, excellent stage presence, and interest in traditional circus arts, are encouraged to apply! Video audition required.

What Is the Circus Smirkus Big Top Tour?
Each year since 1987, the award-winning Circus Smirkus Big Top Tour has featured 30 young performers in a traditional traveling circus. These young performers hail from across the U.S. and the world, perform 60–70 shows from June through August, and bring the circus arts to over 50,000 children and adults during the course of a summer.

★ Advanced camp auditions now open ★

Camp sessions are different this year! Make sure to read through the camp descriptions below for a preview of audition-based camp programs.

Who Can Apply:
Youth ages 12–18 trained in movement or circus arts who have the desire to improve upon their existing skills and learn from public performance opportunities in a variety of programs.

This year, you only need to make one audition video to apply for one or more of the audition-based camps in either or both sessions. Selection to each program is determined based on recommendations from our coach-led review committee. (Separate audition required for tour.)
Big Top Tour applications due November 1
