Review for The Circus Barn, Inc., Greensboro, VT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I first went with my daughter, thinking it would be a cute kids' show. I was blown away by the professional-quality talent, staging, lighting, music. There were plenty of kids in the audience, but even more adults. What makes Smirkus different from other shows is the joyous spirit of the teenaged performers. They just lift you up, make you happy, make you laugh, make you hold your breath. They're doing this for love, and they do it so well it changes your whole outlook on the world. My daughter's in college now, but I never miss Smirkus when it comes to town.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the fun!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

completely into the educational, uplifting aspects of the circus arts.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

bring even more teenagers into the world of circus arts, which means teamwork, responsibility, and personal accomplishment.

Ways to make it better...

the weather had not been so hot.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

funding. Plenty of talented teen performers, dedicated staff and volunteers, but finance is probably on a razor's edge.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About once a year

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2009

Role:  General Member of the Public & Attended performance.
