PPAC adds fourth performance of ‘Cirque Dreams Holidaze’


By popular demand, a fourth performance of ‘Cirque Dreams Holidaze’ has been added on Saturday, Dec. 18 at 11 a.m. at the Providence Performing Arts Center (PPAC). ‘Cirque Dreams Holidaze’ will light up the PPAC stage on Friday, Dec. 17 at 7:30 p.m. and on Saturday, Dec. 18 at 11 a.m., 3:30 p.m., and 7:30 p.m. This annual tradition wraps a whimsical, Broadway-style musical infused with contemporary circus artistry into the ultimate holiday gift for the entire family.

‘Cirque Dreams Holidaze’ 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.

 As the 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 eyes 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 in Providence will celebrate this most wonderful time of the year with over twenty critically acclaimed and accomplished artists and circus acts all gift-wrapped in hundreds of imaginative and one-of-a-kind costume designs. Broadway singers perform original music along with new twists on seasonal favorites.

 Audiences of all ages will marvel at soaring acrobatics, gravity defying feats, and extravagant theatrical production numbers The Boston Globe hails as “entrancing… Las Vegas meets family entertainment.”
