Holiday Dreams, A Spectacular Holiday Cirque!

Holograms, Projection Mapping, Interactive Lasers and award-winning cirque artists all come together under to most spectacular holiday production show in the world! Holiday Dreams presents a jaw-dropping, modern holiday show featuring cirque artists, comedy, daredevils and a modern soundtrack.

The Story

Holiday Dreams is a holiday show unlike any other. The story centers around two characters: one who is going to tell a wonderful Christmas story and the other, a Grinch like heckler from the audience who is at the “wrong show.” Jaded and cynical, our whimsical heckler is taken into a journey around the beauty and wonder of the Holiday Season, represented in all its glory with the use of projection mapping–a technique of projecting computer images as seen by audiences in television shows like America’s Got Talent. Holiday Dreams also features holograms, where elements seem to appear and disappear from thin air and interactive Lasers. An incredibly diverse and talented cast of acrobats, cirque performers, musical comedy actors and daredevils round out this truly unique and modern show.

About the Show

Borealis is not your average holiday show! It harnesses the magic of Christmas to create an awesome holiday spectacle, using projection mapping, and hologram technology to create a truly unique show. The story is elegant in its simplicity and designed to be followed by audiences of all ages.

A Deeper Dive…

We start with our Christmas Carol, a whimsical character beaming with the “Spirit of Christmas” and eager to tell the audience a “wonderful and amazing holiday story!” From the moment she enters the stage, we realize that this is no ordinary Holiday show. A “fireplace” magically lights up as she sits on a chair to the sound of enchanting Christmas bells. The entire set comes “to life” as Christmas lights, and Holiday decor begin to transform the set. Just as she is about to begin her story, a cell phone from one of the audience members begins to ring. A man stands up and starts to talk. Loudly! A comedic banter between our Christmas Carol and the heckler ensues. The magical and whimsical tone is set. From this moment, the heckler, along with the audience are taken into a journey of discovery inside this magical theater. The set includes boxes that come to life with the use of projections to create eye-tricking effects! Our lead characters are also comedic actors adept in musical theater which is reflected in Holiday Dreams’ incorporation of comedic scenes that will have you rolling on the floor laughing. And the show does not use boring holiday tunes. It amps them up with new remixes of contemporary, high energy songs and original compositions. While the technology is jaw-dropping, the performers are simply amazing! An international cast of acrobats, aerialists, daredevils, dancers, singers and award-winning entertainers keep audiences on the edge-of their-seats.
