Jump-starting the holidays

Lyra If you've been in almost any kind of store lately, you know that holiday decorations (which used to show up a few weeks before Thanksgiving) have been piled on shelves since way before Halloween.

So it shouldn't come as a surprise that Cirque Dreams Holidaze, a new show from Neil Goldberg and the folks that took Cirque Dreams Jungle Fantasy to Broadway, is bringing some early holiday cheer to Hard Rock Live at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino tonight through Sunday.

The family-oriented show, featuring a cast of aerialists, acrobats, singers, dancers and musicians, serves up everything from snowmen to toy soldiers to a 24-foot-tall "magical" Christmas tree.

Performances are 8 p.m. Wednesday-Sunday, 2 p.m. Saturday-Sunday in the Hard Rock complex in Hollywood (just north of Stirling Road, off State Road 7/US 441).  Tickets are $35 to $65.  Call Ticketmaster at 1-800-745-3000 or visit the Ticketmaster web site.
