(Note: this show is rescheduled from December 11, 2020)

Cirque Dreams Holidaze lights up the stage in this dazzling family spectacular. This annual tradition wraps a whimsical, Broadway-style musical infused with contemporary circus artistry into the ultimate holiday gift for the family! 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, reindeer, ethereal aerialists, gingerbread people and colossal ornaments fly, juggle and stretch imaginations.
