Franciscan Children’s Hospital

A Franciscan Children’s Hospital patient poses with Smirkus troupers after a 2018 performance at the hospital.

For the third year, our troupe of thirty Smirkos visited Franciscan Children’s Hospital in Massachusetts to perform a special show for the kids in treatment there. The troupe performs about 20 minutes of material and then had the opportunity to meet and greet with the kids in attendance. Bringing our show to the hospital allows a group of children to experience a Smirkus show that they would not typically be able to attend due to their healthcare needs. It is a powerful and heart-warming experience for the Smirkos and spectators alike.
