Cirque Dreams Holidaze extravaganza coming to Orpheum Theatre

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — It’s almost that time of year again!

Cirque Dreams Holidaze, a family holiday extravaganza, is coming to the Orpheum Theatre Dec. 1.

Tickets are on sale Friday, Oct. 15 at 10 a.m., according to a release from the Orpheum.

The annual holiday tradition features a whimsical, Broadway-style musical infused with contemporary circus artistry, the Orpheum said.

The show has been hailed by the New York Daily News as “A delicious confection of charm, sparkle and talent by the sleigh load.” It’s a show everyone will enjoy,” raved BroadwayWorld of the sold-out performances that “dazzled…at The Kennedy Center,” Washington Post. The Tennessean proclaimed it “A dazzling Holidaze Spectacle…for both young and old” at the Grand Ole Opry House.

From the release:

As lights dim and music plays, a fantastical cast of holiday storybook characters come to life presenting an elaborate wonderland, invoking the stories behind a child’s eye as they dream on the most magical of nights. Ballerinas, nutcrackers, snowmen, penguins, reindeer, ethereal aerialists, gingerbread people, carolers and colossal ornaments fly, balance, juggle and stretch imaginations.

Audiences nationwide will celebrate this most wonderful time of the year with over twenty of the world’s critically acclaimed and accomplished artists and circus acts all gift-wrapped in over 300 imaginative and one-of-a-kind costume designs. Broadway singers perform original music along with new twists on seasonal favorites such as “Deck the Halls,” “Winter Wonderland” and “Jingle Bell Rock.”

Tickets start at $29.
