It's like Cirque du Soleil, the kiddie version, except that it's not Cirque du Soleil at all — it's Cirque Dreams, the American answer to Soleil, and Holidaze is one more in a list of similar projects that creator Neil Goldberg has been cranking out since 1993.

Holidaze is the proverbial tale of beloved objects coming to life — in this case, ornaments flipping off the tree and crash-landing into our hearts. The whole thing seems a touch trite — a familiar cast of whirling Santas, toy soldiers and rag dolls, executing some serious acrobatic trickery on a high-tech glittering stage, to an original soundtrack that elevates cheese to a whole new strata.

But hey, 'tis the season — our defenses are low, our sentimentalism is high, and there's nothing like high-flying holiday acrobatics to awe the wee ones. Anyway, I'd guess that Holidaze will be a lot less painful than much of the other holiday-related fare that might awe the wee ones.

The production runs Tuesday and Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. and Thursday at 10 a.m. and 7:30 p.m.
