Best of Maui: Cirque Polynesia Jul 30

From a recent press release from Cirque Polynesia – a great offer and amazing attraction for your next Maui vacation!

MAUI’S ONLY ‘CIRQUE’ SHOW JUST GOT BETTER – CHILDREN GET IN FREE

Cirque Polynesia Offers Free Child Admission With Each Adult Purchase

Ka’anapali, HI, July 22, 2009 – The only act that may rival last month’s standing ovation during Cirque Polynesia’s Grand Opening, is its offer to open its doors free to all children 12 and under with the purchase of a single adult ticket.

The overwhelming response by parents and their children enjoying the show prompted Cirque Polynesia’s management to offer the free tickets.

“Kids absolutely love Cirque Polynesia,” said Cornell “Tuffy” Nicholas, Cirque Polynesia’s producer.  “Hundreds of parents and our travel partners have told us how their children haven’t seen anything like it and they’d talk about the show even days afterwards.”

Beginning today until August 31, every adult that purchases a regularly-priced ticket (show only) will receive a free children’s admission valued at $52.50.

Cirque Polynesia recently added cast member Vili Fehoko, better known as Vili the Warrior, for his role as the University of Hawaii Warrior’s mascot at football and men’s volleyball games.  For the past 28 years, Vili entertained millions throughout the world beginning at the Polynesian Cultural Center, recently for six NFL Pro Bowls as well as appearances on national television including, CNN and ESPN.

The 75-minute show features back-to-back performances that leave parents and their children awing at acts such as those put on by family members of the legendary Wallenda family.  A modern-day aerial act, known as the “perch,” involves daughter Lyric hanging by one ankle while twirling mother Rietta like a helicopter blade high above the audience.

Cirque artists from Hawaii, Russia, Germany, Kazakhstan and Moldova (Eastern Europe) perform aerial acrobatics, aerial illusions and quick-costume change transformations that make up just some of the other acts.

“Allowing parents to bring their children in for free is just our way of giving back to families looking for great entertainment for a great value,” said Doug Harris, Cirque Polynesia’s Managing Partner.  “Children are some of the toughest critics.  The fact that they enjoy the show so much makes our entire team proud.”

Last month, special matinee performances were put on for free for more than 200 children with Big Brother Big Sisters of Maui, Autism Bridges Maui and Best Buddies Hawaii.

Cirque Polynesia plays six nights a week at the Hyatt Regency Maui Resort & Spa’s Monarchy Ballroom located on the ground level.  Doors open half-hour prior to show’s 7 p.m. start-time.

To purchase an adult ticket and receive one children’s admission, guests must call the box office directly (808) 667-4540.

The Hyatt Monarchy Ballroom’s theatre-style, split-level seating, creates a special intimacy between the audience and performers.  The modified 600-seat room boasts an expanded stage, along with enhanced show lighting and audio effects and capabilities.

The show’s original music score features live performances from Diane Salonga Rubio, a classically-trained cellist, flute and strings musician and Dan Cruces who plays drums, electric percussion and the trumpet.

All seats are open on a first-come-first seated basis.  The VIP seating, considered the best seats in the house, are the first five rows from the stage.  All other seats are Premier viewing.

Cirque Polynesia Dinner and Show packages includes dinner at The Hyatt Regency Maui’s Resort and Spa’s newest chic poolside restaurant, ‘Umalu, that features a three-course meal with a selection of fresh Maui produce, Mahi Mahi, prime rib and sesame-orange chicken stir-fry.  All meals include lilikoi-mango cheesecake for desert and soft drinks.

Pricing for the Hyatt’s Dinner and Show adult package begin at $116.  Adult show only packages start at $62.
