The holiday season is right on top of us. That means preparations and, most importantly, getting in the holiday spirit. One of the best ways to get the holiday spirits flowing is entertainment. There are many wonderful holiday books, movies, types of music, and performances that are 100% guaranteed to help you celebrate the holidays. Cirque Dreams Holidaze is one of them.
Cirque Dreams Holidaze is coming to Wharton Center December 17-19. This glittering show incorporates acrobatics, gravity-defying feats, illusions, and elaborate musical numbers all wrapped into one huge family-friendly extravaganza. Snowmen, penguins, angels, reindeer, toy soldiers, gingerbread men, ornaments and Santa all come to life onstage, acted out by 30 performers from 12 different countries.
We all know another great way to get in the holiday mood is with food. The Cirque Dreams Holidaze performers agree. As you prepare your festive feasts, think on this. During a standard week of rehearsals, the cast of Cirque Dreams Holidaze will consume:
50 pounds of celery, tomatoes, spinach, and carrots
100 pounds of chicken and ground beef
500 pounds of assorted fruits
500 protein bars and heads of lettuce
800 slices of bread
2,000 gallons of bottled water
It might seem like a tremendous amount, but these performers will probably eat the same amount per week as you will during this holiday season! Kick off a new holiday family tradition by coming to see Cirque Dreams Holidaze. Click here to learn more.
