Official Press Release from Cirque Imagination:

Cirque Imagination’s “Montage” show, featuring former Cirque du Soleil performers, has announced its plans to postpone the November 29 – December 5 visit previously scheduled at Branson’s Tri-Lakes Center. The group recently decided to relocate to the Starlite Theatre, where the public will have more chances to view its world-renowned talents. “Montage” performances will now span the entire Summer 2010 season, from May 14 through September 5, and following a brief hiatus, will return November 2 through December 19.

Judy Blake, Director of Business Development at Cirque Imagination offered insight on the situation. “We’re hoping Branson’s residents and visitors won’t regard the shift in schedule as an inconvenience, but as a trade-off for something better. With our longer-term commitment in 2010, families will have additional opportunities and increased flexibility for selecting a “Montage” show time that meets the needs of their agendas. Cirque Imagination is devoted to providing our audience with unmatched entertainment, and we will certainly work with current ticket holders to guarantee our postponed arrival won’t deter that from happening.”

Measures in place allow people with tickets or vouchers for the November and December “Montage” performances to save the passes for future admission to one of next year’s shows.

In the meantime, Cirque Imagination continues its journey on the corporate circuit and private sector. The acts it shared with Branson during its September 13-19 stay will be available as contracted entertainment for fundraisers, business events such as tradeshows, and personal celebrations. Talents include hand-balancing, contortion, pole-climbing, aerial chiffon with a 21 foot drop, duo strength, juggling , break dancing, and German wheel, all choreographed to lively, original music.

“As additional stops are made on Cirque Imagination’s national tour, Branson will always remain a favorite we wish to share our world of entertainment with,” Blake added.
