Kick off the holiday season with JOY! , a dazzling extravaganza for the whole family from Tandy Beal & Company. Offering a mix of brilliant visuals, rib-tickling circus comedy, and stunning acrobatics performed by world-class acrobats, dancers, and circus artists, this production stars Cirque du Soleil soloists Jeff Raz and Diane Wasnak, with Candy Land-flavored live music by award-winning a cappella group SoVoSó. Called “Astonishing and gorgeous. The ideal holiday experience!” by the Santa Cruz Sentinel, and "To say it is a hit is an understatement!" by the Mercury News, you won't want to miss JOY! , a zany holiday circus!
