Circus Smirkus is coming!

"If you haven't ever seen it, it's just such a great show. It's for everybody from babies — who love it for the lights, to grandmothers — who love it for the joy of the children. It's just good clean fun. It's really great and it supports our school."
The magic is sure to abound this year, with a theme of "Topsy Turvy Time Travel," and kids ages 11 to 18 putting on the show. This year Circus Smirkus celebrates 25 years on the road, with more than 65 shows in 15 towns throughout the Northeast.


The Consolidated PTA raises money for the school through the circus, Mahoney said, adding that in its seventh year, it is the school's primary fundraiser.
"We do four shows, and last year every one of them sold out. It's really become an awesome tradition," she said.
The funds raised through the event are put toward items students and teachers want and need that might not fit in the school budget, Mahoney said, including supporting field trips and enrichment programs. Last year, the event raised funds to purchase laptops for Consolidated classrooms, Mahoney said.
She said the PTA isn't sure what this year's funds will be used toward yet, but the group is "trying to find something wonderful and creative" for the school community.

From now until the Friday event, school community members will be selling tickets in front of the Clam Shack in Kennebunk from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., cash or check only. Tickets are also available online by credit card at www.smirkus.org.
"People should not wait until the day of the show because they do sell out," Mahoney said.
