The Traveling Show

With limited engagements all around the country, the show’s team is filled with experts in the production set-up. “Cirque Dreams Holidaze” is traveling to 41 cities this holiday season, and we wouldn’t be able to pull off this feat without our incredible traveling crew and the local crews who assist them in cities across the country,” Shubert said of the traveling team. “We will typically arrive in a city the morning of the performance, and everything will be in place to open that evening. Sometimes things are still being tweaked moments before the curtain rises.

Family-Friendly Holiday Magic

“Cirque Dreams Holidaze” is beloved by families, teens, and adults alike. The show is perfect for a family outing, theatre night or date night,” Shubert told us. “The show is absolutely awe-inspiring, and we can hear the audience’s delight throughout the performance each night. Listening to the “oohs” and “ahhs” from audience members and the giddy giggles of children dressed up in their holiday best definitely gets everyone in the holiday mood.”
