It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and also the most entertaining. With the holiday spirit spreading like crazy with home-cooked treats, lights, and music, why not celebrate with the circus too? Cirque Dreams Holidaze at the Silver Creek Event Center at Four Winds Casino New Buffalo has been spearheading the holiday season for several years. As one of the most exciting and sought after shows of the year, Cirque Dreams Holidaze is fun for the whole family.
Since 1993, Cirque Dreams has entertained more than 50 million people worldwide under the artistic direction of founder Neil Goldberg. It’s a state-of-the-art theatrical production put on by Broadway and Circus performers alike.
Four Winds Casino Director of Entertainment, Jason George, had a very strong response from the audience when they first introduced the show, so it’s no question that Four Winds would bring the performers back.
“We’ve been looking forward to having them back. They’re very entertaining for a crowd of all ages and we enjoy just the different aspects of it. It’s more than your typical musical,” George said. “The community is very excited to have them back. The level of talent is fascinating in this show. I’ve never met anyone that can do the things these guys do.”
The story of Cirque Dreams Holidaze is that through the magic of Christmas all of the ornaments on the tree come to life and celebrate through the art of circus. The show has gained international attention from “The New York Times,” “Today Show” and many other popular media outlets and has traveled all over the country in the past year. Lead singer Kit Asfeldt is in his first season with the show and couldn’t be happier to be a part of such an incredible cast and crew, and simply wants the audience to leave in the holiday spirit.
“The coolest thing for me is that I come from a musical theater background, so I’m used to the song and dance of the show. But it’s cool to be able to travel with these professional circus people and all of the crazy things that they do and what they have to do behind the scenes to maintain their bodies,” Asfeldt said. “If the audience thinks one thing as they’re leaving, I want them to be able to say, ‘Man, I wish I could come back,’ because there’s just so much that happens that there’s no way you can catch it all in one sitting.”
