'A magic process'

Circus Smirkus performances to benefit Theater in the Open


Theater in the Open provides free, family-friendly theater in Maudslay State Park and is currently working on a production based around the myth of Orpheus.

“Our two missions are really to entertain and educate using art,” Speck said. “Right now, we have 85 students who are learning dance and art and drama, and we try to use different forms of art to create more well-rounded human beings because that’s the experience we all had growing up.”
