MANHATTAN -- Kansas State University's McCain Performance Series will end the semester with Cirque Dreams Illumination at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 8, in McCain Auditorium.

The show is appropriate for the entire family. It blends imagination, theatrical innovation and illuminating presentation into a story that turns a city of everyday people, workers and pedestrians into feats of disbelief.

Cirque Dreams Illumination features 27 world-class artists as they illuminate objects, balance on wires and leap structures. Performers redefine flight with entertaining variety, comedy and extraordinary occurrences that reinvent ordinary life.

Urban acrobatics, choreography and illusions are enhanced by special effects performed to an original score of jazz, salsa, ballroom, pop and trendy musical beats.

Tickets are on sale now at $17 for K-State students and $34 for the general public. Discounts for K-State faculty and staff, military, and children are also available. Tickets can be purchased at the McCain Auditorium box office, 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays, or by calling 785-532-6428. More information is available online at

The performance will be preceded by Cirque McCain, a free children's event from 6-7 p.m. at the K-State Student Union. Activities will include crafts, games, refreshments and circus-themed entertainment.
