POMPANO BEACH, FL (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — U.S.-based theatrical touring company Cirque Productions' first touring season of 'Cirque Dreams Holidaze' proved to be a strong success, grossing over $10 million in ticket sales in just two months.
"Cirque Dreams Holidaze" comprised a production that featured a holiday theme with theatrics, acrobatics, music and dance productions built around elaborate sets. The production toured in two teams, each composed of a cast of 30 artists, but next year, Cirque Productions is considering expanding to four complete touring companies.
Cirque Dreams Holidaze appeared in 12 theatres in the states of Florida, Tennessee, North Carolina, Minnesota, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, New Jersey and New York.

At Shea's Performing Arts Center in Buffalo, NY, 8 shows in 1 week sold 21,049 tickets with gross sales of $984,829.00.
