WaterTower Theatre is bringing to the stage, Cirque Holidays. The show is a co-production with Lone Star Circus and brings theater and international circus talent together to celebrate this holiday season in a fun and unique way.
According to a press release by WaterTower Theatre, “In an intimate in-the-round theatre setting, audiences of all ages will be treated to a holiday celebration from around the world featuring:
The amazing aerial exploits of Frank Chapman on the Aerial Lamp. The unbelievable flexibility of the beautiful contortionist, Tilda McSpadden. From England, up in the air, the novel and surprising aerial exercises of Joanne Vazquez. The undisputed Queen of Hula-Hoops, the incredible and delightful Jesse Patterson. From Argentina, the startling hand-balancing feats of Ernesto Fassio. From the United States, the grace and elegance of Emily Fassio on the aerial Lyra. From Mexico, the thrilling high-speed juggling of José Vazquez. From Russia, the stupefying and mind-challenging illusions of Vladimir and Olga Smirnov.”
Lone Star Circus is the performing arm of Lone Star Circus Arts Center. Created in 2006 by Fanny Kerwich, it is a Dallas-based non-profit organization. “Its purpose is to promote circus arts through performance, education and community outreach. It includes Lone Star Circus School, which provides recreational and professional circus training to children and adults; and Lone Star Circus, which produces high-quality circus-centered entertainment, either in the form of shows or for special, civic and corporate events, in Texas and beyond.”
Cirque Holidays at WaterTower Theatre is directed by Fanny Kerwich and features Ringmaster extraordinaire Ty McFarlan, Argentina’s funnyman Rulito and actresses Jessie Prince and Emma Jewel Rogers making their WaterTower Theatre debuts in the role of Calista.
