Theater Performance
(table seating or theater style)
Cirque Nutcracker performs a corporate “theater-style” holiday cirque-style show following dinner, awards, or other types of corporate presentations. Cirque Nutcracker’s length and holiday entertainment content can be completely customized based on the event’s holiday theming or corporate message. This type of Cirque Nutcracker cirque-style corporate event performance is most similar to what would be seen in a public presentation of Cirque Nutcracker in a casino showroom or on tour in theaters.

Interactive
Cirque Nutcracker interactive holiday performances combine ambient cirque-style entertainment with focused corporate staged holiday entertainment.

Cirque-style ambient performers from Cirque Nutcracker interact with event guests before and after the focused staged holiday entertainment segments. This enables the holiday event to flow seamlessly with Cirque Nutcracker entertainment throughout the evening. Remote satellite stages placed throughout the holiday event space add an air of mystery, as Cirque Nutcracker entertainment happens everywhere, on stage, in the audience and above the attendees.
