St. Petersburg, Fla. (Oct. 26, 2015) – The Mahaffey Theater is proud to welcome the astonishing family show Cirque Dreams Holidaze back to our stage, after a sold-out performance in 2014. The dazzling holiday spectacular returns Sunday, Nov. 15 at 7 p.m.
The New York Daily News calls it a “delicious confection of charm, sparkle and talent by the sleighload.”
Director Neil Goldberg and the creators of the groundbreaking Broadway hit Cirque Dreams Jungle Fantasy re-imagine the holiday season with more than 300 costumes, 20 acts and 30 performers from 12 countries showcasing an endless variety of imaginative, heart-pounding and gravity-defying feats.
Experience gingerbread men flipping mid air, toy soldiers marching on thin wires along with snowmen, icemen and penguins, balancing, jumping and spinning in disbelief – the show celebrates the most wonderful time of the year with singers, choreography and exciting production numbers. Performers twirl, bounce and soar thru the air to original music and seasonal favorites brought to life within a stage setting of gigantic gifts, colossal candy canes and 30-foot towering trees.
Cirque Dreams Holidaze is a fast-moving, jaw-dropping, larger-than-life winter wonderland of amazement.
