Gingerbread men flipping through the air? Toy soldiers marching on high wires? Penguins? Yeah, the circus is coming to town, baby, and it’s got a holiday theme. Cirque Dreams Holidaze, a national touring troupe of festive and limber acrobats is coming to town to bring their own brand of holiday cheer. Although this makes us think of the scene in “Knocked Up,” when Paul Rudd and Seth Rogen take a mushroom-induced psychedelic trip during Cirque du Soleil, who knows? Cirque Dreams Holidaze may be a great present for someone you know.

Price: $24+
