(UNION NJ) -- Snowkus Pocus, a charming tale of a young girl experiencing winter for the first time, is coming to Kean Stage on Sunday, December 9 at 3:00pm. The story is told through dazzling cirque, breathtaking ballet and incredible acrobatics.
“Briana is swept away in the land of Snowkus Pocus by the North Wind and learns the beauty of the season,” said Tad Emptage, producer of Cirque-tacular Entertainment. “The show is told with multi-talented, world-record-holding acrobats. It’s a lot of fun and appropriate for all ages. Grandma and her granddaughter can enjoy the same show side by side.”
Snowkus Pocus premiered Off-Broadway three years ago and has been touring during the winter months ever since. The performers take on the roles of Jack Frost, the North Wind, the Snow Queen and the Aurora Borealis, among others. Audience members will see daring high-wire acts, hula hoop sensations and even a performer with her head inside a giant balloon, portraying the arrival of the sun come springtime. How does she do it?
“We can’t give away all our secrets,” said Emptage. “Come to the show and find out.”
Snowkus Pocus is sure to rekindle your childlike sense of wonder.
