Historic Circus Videos and Stories with Rob Mermin

March 6, 2021 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

March is National Meals on Wheels Awareness Month and to raise awareness and funds for the City of Montpelier’s essential FEAST Senior Meals Program, which operates Meals on Wheels and Curbside Meals for Seniors, the Montpelier Senior Activity Center (MSAC) has cooked up an enticing menu of ten diverse, affordable, and pandemic-safe offerings – 9 online, 1 curbside – to be enjoyed from the comforts of your own home.

Montpelier resident Rob Mermin, founder of Circus Smirkus and former MSAC movement instructor, will introduce a dozen entertaining video clips from the early years of Smirkus, featuring his own clown and magic acts in the ring and clips of Mermin performing mime on a popular Danish TV show from the ’80s, including Rufus the famous pantomime pup! This will be fun for the whole family—a behind-the-scenes look at Smirkus and Mermin’s early performances. He will answer your questions live with the assistance of an MSAC moderator.
