Cirque Dreams Holidaze launched its national tour with a two-show event at the Honeywell Center Ford Theater starting Sunday night, Nov. 20.
 
The internationally acclaimed production company chose Wabash for its first of many opening nights this holiday season for many reasons, starting with “we’ve been here before,” according to Neil Goldberg, Cirque Dreams founder and creative director.
 
“The theater space is beautiful,” Goldberg told The Paper of Wabash County. “The town has been great for us, you know, with all the accommodations and all the logistics that go into what we need to do. Wabash audiences have been really supportive of the Cirque Dreams brand throughout the years. We’ve had several shows here, including Holidaze, but this production has many, many new elements in it."
