KALAMAZOO--"Cirque Dreams Holidaze" will transform the campus of Western Michigan University into a wonderland of fantasy and disbelief with two holiday performances Tuesday and Wednesday, Nov. 29-30. Shows begin at 7:30 p.m. in the University's Miller Auditorium.

Renowned director Neil Goldberg, creator of the groundbreaking Broadway hit "Cirque Dreams Jungle Fantasy," re-imagines the holiday season with "Cirque Dreams Holidaze." An international cast of more than 30 multitalented and brilliantly costumed artists come to life and perform astonishing feats of disbelief. Experience gingerbread men flipping mid-air, toy soldiers marching on thin wires, snowmen daringly balancing, icemen powerfully sculpting, penguins spinning, puppets dancing and reindeer soaring high above a landscape of holiday wonderment. An original music score and seasonal favorites accompany hundreds of astonishing costumes and holiday dreams in a setting of gigantic gifts, colossal candy canes and 30-foot towering soldiers creating a wonderland of spectacle.
