Filled with classical musical fun, tender romance and favorites, including “Ya Got Trouble,” “Seventy-Six Trombones,” “Goodnight My Someone,” “Gary, Indiana” and “Till There Was You,” THE MUSIC MAN is the perfect All-American Musical! performing at the The Miramar Cultural Center Saturday February 12, 2011 8 p.m. *Tickets $25, $30, $35
Astonishing athletes defy gravity and execute breathtaking feats as they stretch the limits of human ability in the spellbinding New Shanghai Circus. CBS News calls the show “fantastic,” and sold-out audiences marvel as they watch this talented troupe of fearless performers with boundless energy bring to life more than two thousand years of Chinese circus traditions. If it’s humanly possible — and even if it’s not! – Shanghai’s acrobats, jugglers and contortionists defy gravity and delight adults and children alike with spectacular flair and limitless imagination. Dazzling costumes, awe-inspiring sets and incredible choreography make Shanghai Circus an amazing experience for the whole family. So, sit back and enjoy the super-human displays of power and extraordinary grace when the New Shanghai Circus comes to town.
