Cirque Dreams Holidaze returns to the Morrison Center to light up the 2014 holiday season in Boise

I have always loved the circus. My parents used to bring me to Ringling Bros. and Barnamum Bailey at Madison Square Garden when we were growing up. Warm, lasting memories fill my heart when I reminisce about such performances.

Now Boise receives one of the best shows, in its 5th year of touring multiple simultaneous productions, Cirque Dreams Holidaze. It is a separate group from the well known Cirque Du Soleil. Nonetheless, this production is elaborate the story lines intricate, and the music ... dynamic. And as with Cirque Du Soleil, there are no animals being used in this show.

Cirque Dreams Holidaze is “so full of energy it could end our dependence on oil” according to the New York Daily News and “stuffed with so much holiday cheer and audacious acts, Scrooge would exit with a big ol’ smile on his face” proclaims the Erie Times News about this “Broadway-worthy spectacle”.

This show sold out here in 2012, and it returns to the Morrison Center to light up the 2014 holiday season with a bigger, newer and more exciting, detailed production. THIS IS A SHOW NOT TO BE MISSED...it's a cirque show...Broadway musical...holiday spectacular...and family show all in one.

Broadway director Neil Goldberg re-imagines the holiday season with over 300 costumes, 20 acts and 30 performers from 12 countries showcasing an endless variety of imaginative, heart-pounding and gravity- defying feats you have to see to believe. 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 & soldiers creating a wonderland of amazement.

The NY Daily News stated that "There have only been a handful of shows that have generated an exclamation point as assertive as the ones created and directed by Neil Goldberg. This show boasts "a delicious confection of charm, sparkle and talent by the sleigh load."

I can't wait to bring my family to see it.
