State Theatre New Jersey presents A Magical Cirque Christmas

(NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ) -- State Theatre New Jersey presents A Magical Cirque Christmas – A Holiday Variety Show on Friday, December 1, 2023 at 7:30pm. This is the ultimate holiday experience—a variety show loaded with nostalgia, charm, comedy, music, and magic. The cast of world-class acrobats, contortionists, and aerialists will push the boundaries and defy gravity. The show also features a captivating holiday musical score.

Featured acts include Jonathan Rinny (rolla bolla, unicycle, juggling performer) and Aryn Shelander (contortionist and aerial foot archer). Rinny, a fourth-generation circus artist, captures the attention of audiences with his balance and precision as he bends beyond the nature of human potential while climbing higher and higher in the air on an always-moving surface. Simon Cowell of America’s Got Talent called Rinny “the best rolla bolla act I have ever seen.” Shelander is trained in Mongolian Contortion and is the creator of aerial archery. She has performed on America's Got TalentFrance's Got Talent, across North America, Europe, and the Mediterranean. Also featured is the graceful, flexible, and hypnotic acrobat Shelander as well as other high-flying aerial artists and stunning acrobats.

“This year, we have reimagined every aspect of A Magical Cirque Christmas. Our team of visionary artists and creators have crafted a show that promises to mesmerize audiences of all ages,” said Co-Directors Louanne Madorma and Mark “Swany” Swanhart. “Get ready for a fusion of holiday charm, a musical sleighride and visual breathtaking performances. We believe that Christmas is a time for making memories so mark your calendars for the most anticipated A Magical Cirque Christmas ever.”

Tickets range from $39-$99 and are available for purchase online or by calling State Theatre Guest Services at 732-246-SHOW (7469). State Theatre Guest Services, located at 15 Livingston Ave, New Brunswick NJ, is open by phone and email only, Tuesday through Friday from 11:00am to 5:00pm.

After major renovations, State Theatre New Jersey celebrated its 100th Anniversary in December 2021 in a fully renovated theater including newly renovated lobbies, all new restrooms, upgraded HVAC systems, a new elevator for access to all levels, and brand-new theater seats. Originally built as a silent film and vaudeville palace, State Theatre’s historic significance was honored by PBS by featuring it in its documentary series, Treasures of New Jersey, in the fall of 2018. “Treasures of New Jersey: State Theatre New Jersey” can be streamed online.
