Western Carolina University will usher in the holiday season in an acrobatic way as the “Snowkus Pocus Cirque Holiday Show” is presented at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 7.

A troupe of performers will present family friendly wintry vignettes, including a bendy ballerina inside a living snow globe, a snowball battle between the North Wind and Jack Frost, and an aerial snow ballet, during the presentation at the John W. Bardo Fine and Performing Arts Center.

“Snowkus Pocus” is produced by Cirque-tacular Entertainment, a company that has given thousands of aerial and ground acrobatic performances throughout the world over the last eight years. The company’s performers have been praised by critics for their “mind-boggling artistry and athleticism” and “great feats of daring at the extreme edges of human capability.”

Tickets purchased in advance are $5 for students; $13 for WCU faculty and staff; $18 for general admission; and $15 per ticket for groups of 20 or more. On the day of the show, tickets are $10 for students; $18 for WCU faculty and staff; and $23 for general admission.
