Entertainment for the Whole Family
The Shangri-La Chinese Acrobats
Friday, November 20, 2009; 8 p.m.
Take a glimpse into the fascinating Orient with The Shangri-La Chinese Acrobats. This show has been called "incredible," "breathtaking," "stunning," and "quite unbelievable." The Shangri-La Chinese Acrobats have taken the world by storm and will continue to do so when they bring their 30th North American Theatre Tour to Frederick at the Weinberg Center on Friday, November 20, 2009 at 8 pm. Tickets are on sale now and range from $20-$30. Tickets for ages 16 and under are only $12.
The performance consists of sensational Chinese acrobatics, balancing feats, martial arts displays, and much more. A truly oriental spectacular and a show for all ages, the grace and precision of the acrobats are the triumph of years of dedicated training and discipline, but their art has been formed by centuries of tradition. Chinese acrobatics are, in fact, much more than just a series of stunts. Most of these acts clearly demonstrate the achievement of perfection through finding harmony between mind and body ~ an ancient concept in the Orient. This sensational group has performed throughout South America, Central America, Southeast Asia, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Monte Carlo, Canada, New Zealand, Israel, Canada, and the United States.
The entertainment provided by these gifted performers appeals to all ages! Most importantly, there is no language barrier and everyone attending the performance will be amazed at their unbelievable feats. So, audiences should prepare to sit back, relax, and be transported by these incredible performers to the mystical land of “Shangri-La” where anything is possible…and illusion becomes reality!
