Tinker Yorkinee Spree’s Fantabulous Suitcase Circus

July 18 - September 30, 2017

Ladies and gentlemen, children of ALL ages, THE CIRCUS is coming to Simpich Showcase!

Puppeteer David Simpich is pulling some old strings and plenty of new ones as his Olde English Tinker/Clown opens his wares-for-sale suitcase at a most unusual angle— revealing a troupe of highly talented Yorkshire Terriers vying to take the center ring.  For this special summer show, all ages are invited to find a seat under an amazing mini big top that celebrates the magic and hope only found in a world of spangles, sawdust, and daring…. Tinker Yorkinee Spree’s style, that is.
